The record-breaking entry list for the 2019 British GT Championship has been revealed today at the Media Day at Donington Park. 38 crews were announced as full-time entrants and they are forming the biggest-ever grid in championship’s 27-year history.

Ten manufacturers will be represented over three classes (GT3, GTC and GT4): Aston Martin, Bentley, McLaren, Jaguar, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Lamborghini, Ford and KTM. For the first time, there are no Ginetta cars. Only circuit restrictions have prevented British GT from accepting even more cars this year.

The GT3 class will have fourteen cars built by seven manufacturers. Five of those models – the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT3, Bentley Continental GT3, Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo, McLaren 720S GT3 and Porsche 911 GT3 R – are available to customers for the first time this year, while the BMW M6 GT3 also makes its British GT debut in 2019. Only the Mercedes-AMG GT3 has previously raced in the UK’s national GT championship.

Twenty-three cars will race in the GT4 class

The GTC class returns full-time to British GT for the first time since 2013 courtesy of a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and WPI Motorsport, which will evaluate its GT3 graduation as the season progresses.

The GT4 grid will consist of 23 cars from eight manufacturers. Four models – the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4, Ford Mustang GT4, KTM X-Bow GT4 and Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport – are either brand-new for 2019 or have never previously contested a British GT round.

On the top of drivers’ list is reigning GT3 champion Jonny Adam who will drive the #47 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT3 for TF Sport, sharing a car with Graham Davidson. Adam’s last year’s partner Flick Haigh is not returning to the championship. Jonny Adam is starting the season with fourteen British GT wins on his account while Aston Martin has 32 victories, just one behind Porsche’s record of 33 wins.

Last year’s GT4 champion Jack Mitchell and runner-up Ben Green both graduated to GT3 class and they will drive two different BMW M6 GT3s for Century Motorsport.

Same as last year, the 2019 calendar features seven events with nine races. Rockingham Motor Speedway dropped out of the calendar and it was replaced by Donington Park, which will host Roud 6 in June and Round 9 in September.

The other circuits are Oulton Park, Snetterton, Silverstone, Spa and Brands Hatch. The championship will kick-off at Oulton Park on Easter Bank Holiday Weekend (April 20-22).
