Blancpain GT Series. At last!
So the racing season is well underway now, we’ve had the Intercontinental GT 12 hours of Bathurst back in February and 8hrs of Laguna Seca last weekend. We’ve had two rounds of the Formula 1, in Melbourne and Bahrain. Over here in the UK we’ve got the very popular British Touring Car Championships starting this weekend at Brands Hatch.
Next on my list though is the opening round of the Blancpain GT Series at the iconic Autodromo Nazionale Monza, the home of Italian motorsport. Rewind a couple of months and I was in Sydney, eagerly awaiting the start of the Bathurst 12hr. As a Brit I was looking forward to seeing the new generation Bentley Continental GT3 (pictured). After a promising start and leading the race at one point, one failed to finish and the other crossed the line on the lead lap but in 6th place. Back to Monza and Bentley will be continuing its long-term commitment to the Blancpain GT Series. The M-Sport squad will race with numbers 107 and 108 as the British marque celebrates its centenary year.
