FIA to separate FIA GT World Cup


The International Automobile Federation (FIA) revealed its plan to separate the coming GT World Cup into two events, according to an official statement released by the racing body.
The separate events will have “one dedicated to manufacturers – the FIA GT World Cup – and the second dedicated to a more traditional PRO/AM format,” namely matches for a mix of professional and amateur drivers.
The FIA confirmed that the additional standalone event would be held in a different venue and at a different date to the FIA GT World Cup.
“The Commission aims to launch an invitation to tender for a promoter to propose the full concept of an FIA GT3 PRO/AM customer event,” added the FIA.
However, further details about the dates or venues for the events have yet to be announced, and the event’s return to the MSAR’s Guia circuit has yet to be confirmed.
The statement was made after the second World Motor Sport Council took place in Geneva last Thursday.
