GT OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP
The endurance races also return in 2019. The 3-hours Endurance Champions Cup will be open to GT, Touring and Sport cars with teams of two or three drivers. Four races event all in Italy with three separate groupings.
The series consists of events in various European countries which feature two races over a weekend. In its first year, the races had an identical format to the Spanish GT Championship, with two 200 km races, the first held on Saturday and the second the following Sunday. Three of the six rounds were joint events for the Open and the Spanish GT Championship.
In 2007, the first race, known as Pro-Am, covers approximately 200 km distance, while the second race is 150 km and known as GT Open. The only exception is the Open GT Barcelona, which is a single 300 km race. In early seasons, a few races have been a part of the World Touring Car Championship support package.
Support series have included the Euroformula Open Championship (former Spanish F3 Open), SEAT León Supercopa (2014-2016), and Formula V8 3.5 Series (2016).
