- Six dates in the programme for the season
- Five races in France, one at Spa-Francorchamps
- Pro-Am, Silver Cup and Am Cup categories retained
In a stormy sea agitated by external events, the FFSA GT French Championship has done more than just stay the course during this 2020 season. Two weeks before the final of the competition in Lédenon, from 6th to 8th November, SRO Motorsports Group is proud to present its 2021 calendar.
“First of all, I would like to thank the FFSA, the circuits, our teams and our drivers for their loyalty, from the bottom of my heart” explains Laurent Gaudin, the General Manager of the FFSA GT French Championship. “In the health context that we are all aware of, we had an average of more than thirty GT4s over our first four events. The flagship competition of the French circuits has had a very good season on five quality circuits. One thing is certain: the champions we will be celebrating in Lédenon will be fine champions.”
According to the principle of “You don’t change a team that wins”, the general framework of the 2021 season will be very similar to that of 2020. There will be three categories. In addition to the Pro-Am and the Am Cup, that have been present since the introduction of GT4 as the flagship categories of the championship in 2017, the Silver Cup will be run again after proving very popular in 2020.
As tradition dictates, the season of the FFSA French Circuit Championship begins during the Easter Cup at Nogaro (from 2nd to 5th April), with the FFSA GT as the figurehead. Following on from this, the FFSA GT will share the bill at the Circuit of Nevers Magny-Cours with the GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS – which will be the second round from 7 to 9 May.
Having regained its place on the calendar in 2020, the Tarn will be back in the game next season with a meeting fixed at the beginning of June during the traditional Grand Prix d’Albi.
Absent from the current season for the reasons that we all know about, the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps will make its return to the calendar integrating the FFSA GT French Championship into the SRO Speed Week, one week before the Total 24 Hours of Spa, from July 23rd to 25th.
The final of this 2020 vintage year will be held at the beginning of November, and next year the Circuit of Lédenon will return to a date at the end of the summer (27-29 August). As for the Paul Ricard circuit, it will resume its place at the end of the season. The 2021 champions will be crowned in the Var from 1st to 3rd October.
“After the very eventful 2020 season, I think we can say that this 2021 calendar is both varied and well-balanced” Laurent Gaudin is delighted to add. “The appearance of the FFSA French Touring Car Championship alongside the FFSA GT and the loyalty of the other support series should once again enable us to offer some very fine motor sport meetings. Our teams are highly motivated and we are going to work hard to consolidate the position of the FFSA GT French Championship as the undisputed leader in GT4 competitions!”
