2016 Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup

2016 Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup
Previous: 2015 Next: 2017

The 2016 Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup was the fourth season following on from the demise of the SRO Group's FIA GT1 World Championship (an auto racing series for grand tourer cars), the third with the designation of Blancpain Sprint Series or Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup. After developing their partnership, Blancpain and the SRO decided that 2016 would see both the Sprint and Endurance Series further integrated into the Blancpain GT Series, putting the emphasis on the prestigious overall drivers' and manufacturers' titles causing the Sprint Series name to change from Blancpain Sprint Series to Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup.[1]

CalendarEdit

The series started at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on 10 April and ended at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain on 2 October. The calendar was reduced to five events, dropping races at Nogaro, Moscow, Algarve, Zolder and Zandvoort, with the addition of races at Hungaroring and Nürburgring.[2]
