Avon Tyres British GT opener at Oulton Park

3rd January 2013

Britain’s premier sports car series, the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, will be holding its opening race at Oulton Park.

The track located in Little Budworth, Chester, will hold two 60-minute sprint races over the Easter weekend – March 31st/April 1st.

Other venues announced for the Avon Tyres sponsored races include Rockingham, Silverstone GP, Snetterton 300, Brands Hatch GP and Donington Park.

However, round six of the championship will be held at Dutch circuit Zandvoort, in an event which has now become a tradition. Satellite channel Motors TV will broadcast coverage of the two, hour-long sprint races held in the Netherlands, where racers will compete in the Trophy of the Dunes event.

Championship manager Benjamin Franassovici said: “We’ve decided to keep things fresh for 2013 by having an away race at Zandvoort.”

“I think come September the combination of great cars and good weather by the beach will be an exciting prospect.”
