British GT and BRDC F4 Championships confirm Donington Park 2016 dates
The British GT and BRDC F4 Championships are the latest big name motorsport series to confirm their event dates at Donington Park for 2016.
The popular series will race at Donington on 10-11 September next year, with the date being the final rounds of the season for both championships.
The British GT Championship sees huge grids of exotic supercars from the likes of Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche and more go wheel to wheel in one of the most successful ‘Grand Touring’ championships in the world. This year’s title decider has gone down as a classic, and Donington will once again decide the outcome of the championship next year.
BRDC F4 has proved itself as one of Britain’s and Europe’s leading junior single seater series, and will boast a new and more powerful car next year for F1 drivers of the future.
British GT Championship Manager Benjamin Franassovici commented: “Donington has a habit of producing fantastic season finales and that was certainly the case in September, so it was an obvious venue to bring the curtain down on our 2016 campaign. The racing is always fast and furious, plus fans will also get to see a number of the exciting new-generation GT3 machines making their debuts next year. Add in the all-new BRDC F4 junior single-seaters that will share the same bill and it really is one of the best family days out in British motorsport.”
Donington Park Sporting Director Bob Adams said: “We are very pleased to be holding the final round of the British GT and BRDC F4 Championships at Donington Park next year. As we saw this year, Donington is the perfect venue for a title decider, and we look forward to a similarly exciting event in 2016.”
