The Blancpain GT Series starts a new season in Zolder. The path located in Belgium is in charge of open hostilities in a Sprint Cup that starts with a grill smaller than usual. The limitation of the squares in the Pro class and the greater interest of the manufacturers for the tests of resistance have resulted in the entry list of this event is composed of 21 cars GT3, 13 of which compete in the Professional class. Of the vehicles remaining, three will fight for the Pro-Am Cup and four for the Silver Cup, while there is only one participant in the Am Cup.
Audi has a total of six Audi R8 LMS GT3 in the Pro class, four of the Team WRT and two units of Saintéloc Racing Attempto Racing. It is in fact the brand that somehow has been taken more seriously, the Sprint Cup, which, joined to the Team WRT compete at home, puts them as favorites. In addition, in the Audi #1 there is a Spanish presence since Alex Banks will compete with Christopher Mies. In the Audi #2 we find Will Stevens and Dries Vanthoor and the #17 Stuart Leonard and Robin Frijns. Alignments all warranties.
Mercedes-AMG and Lexus are two brands that at least have two cars in the Pro class. Within this particular division that has taken place in this start of season, they are two Mercedes-AMG GT3 of AKKA-ASP. The first of the #87 of Nicolas Jamin, and Felix Serralles, the second, the #88 of Raffaele Marciello and Michael Meadows, maybe the big bet of the mark by the title absolute, and of this Sprint Cup. For his part, Emil Frey Racing aligns the two Lexus RC F GT3 present on the grid. At the Lexus #14 will be Albert Costa next to Christian Klien.
The last manufacturer to have a chance of fighting for victory is Lamborghini. In fact, the brand of Sant’agata Bolognese has a cast of cars and a ‘line up’ really interesting in each one of their Lamborghini Huracán GT3. Ezequiel Perez Companc and Andrea Caldarelli made a couple in the Lamborghini #19 GRT Grasser, same team that puts in liza #63 with Mirko Bortolotti and Christian Engelhart and the #82 of Loris Hezemans and Franck Perera, one of the fastest drivers over a single lap of the category.
The eight cars remaining, macedonia of fruits. In the Pro-Am Cup two Ferrari 488 GT3 of Kessel Racing in front of the Audi #26 Saintéloc Racing. For its part, between the four inscribed Silver Cup are the Bentley Continental GT3-Team Parker Racing, the BMW M6 GT3 of 3Y Technology and one of the Audi of Attempto, in addition to the third Mercedes-AMG GT3 of AKKA-ASP. The car ‘odd’ is the Lamborghini Gallardo R-EX Boutsen Ginion, enrolled in the Am Cup and that closes a grill on which are represented seven manufacturers.
