The calendar for next year’s GT4 European Series Northern Cup has been confirmed. Several changes have been made to the provisional schedule that was revealed at Spa in July. The 2017 season will feature six meetings in six different countries and will see the series partnering with the Blancpain GT Series, DTM, ADAC GT Masters and the FIA European Truck Racing Championship.
The season opener will take place at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on the first weekend of April, where the GT4 European Series Northern Cup will be part of the Blancpain GT Series support package. Five weeks later, on May 6-7, the series will make its debut at Brands Hatch, sharing the track with the Blancpain GT Series for the second time.
The picturesque Red Bull Ring is the next stop on the calendar, on June 10-11. In Austria, the series will be part of the ADAC GT Masters weekend. The fourth round will be held just across the border, in Slovakia, on July 15-16. At the Slovakia Ring the series will share the track with the FIA European Truck Racing Championship.
For the penultimate round of the season the teams will travel to the Netherlands, as the series joins DTM at Circuit Park Zandvoort on August 19-20, while the 2017 season finale will take place at the famous Nürburgring on September 16-17. In Germany, the GT4 European Series Northern Cup will again be part of the support program for the Blancpain GT Series.
Max Braams, Series Coordinator GT4 European Series Northern Cup: “We are delighted to confirm our calendar for 2017, which includes some of the best racing circuits in Europe. We wanted to make sure our teams will be racing at high-profile events and we managed to do that by supporting the Blancpain GT Series, ADAC GT Masters, DTM and the FIA European Truck Racing Championship. I am looking forward to plenty of racing excitement next year.”
