All 30 Exclusive Racing Entitlement licenses for next year’s inaugural Super GT championship have been sold, series organisers have confirmed.
Super GT officially launched on Thursday evening as a class that combines GT4, Ferrari Challenge, and Porsche 911 GT3 cars.
A four-round season calendar was also revealed, with the first meeting at Highlands Motorsport Park in January.
Now, 24 hours later, Super GT is announcing that all 30 spots on next year’s grid have been filled.
“We didn’t expect that in less than 24 hours after sending out the registration forms on Thursday morning we’d have the series sold out,” Category Manager Grant Smith said.
Who those 30 drivers are have not been announced. Expect those closer to the start of the series.
However, Smith says the GT4 class is made up of six McLarens, three Porsches, two Aston Martins and a Mercedes-AMG.
Two Ferrari 458s have entered the Ferrari challenge class. Eight Porsche 991s and six 997s are set to make up the Porsche grid.
“There will be a little bit of fine tuning between now and round one at Highlands Motorsport Park in January, but we are heading in a positive direction,” Smith said.
“The assortment of cars we have managed to gather together is quite simply exceptional.”
Each weekend has three races. Saturday will have one 30-minute race followed by another one on Sunday.
There will then be a 60-minute feature race on Sunday afternoon.
Every car will have to comply with a Balance of Performance criteria carried out during pitstops, which are compulsory in each race.
Put simply, cars with the fastest lap times in practice and qualifying will have to stay stationary longer in the pitlane during their stop.
The Highlands opener is slated to be on January 15-16.
