FIVE CONTINENTS – FIVE ICONIC CIRCUITS
Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli represents the highest echelon of long-distance GT racing.
Established in 2016, the series’ purpose couldn’t be simpler: reward the manufacturer and drivers who achieve the best collective results in the world’s greatest standalone endurance events.
The proliferation of GT3, built on more than a decade of manufacturer involvement and SRO’s Balance of Performance stability, has resulted in it becoming the de facto senior class for all of the world’s most prestigious GT races. This, as well as using the same Pirelli tyres, offers manufacturers an incentive to compete in all such events by employing regional customer teams without the expense of freighting cars around the world.
This year's calendar features five rounds on as many continents - the most since the last pre-global pandemic season in 2019. The LIQUI MOLY Bathurst 12 Hour in Australia returns to its traditional date in early February and is followed later that month by the Kyalami 9 Hour (South Africa). The world's biggest GT3 race - the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa - is next up in late June/early July before IGTC travels from Europe to North America for the Indianapolis 8 Hour Presented by AWS. The season concludes with the Gulf 12 Hours at Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi just before Christmas.
