SPECIAL “COMPETITION” CORNER FOR GENTLEMAN DRIVERS
As mentioned on the home page, trackdays.events is a platform dedicated to events organized for GT gentleman drivers/owners on the major European racetracks. There is no question of competition, even if everyone can have fun following or overtaking a friend driver, with the forms and respect due to the other.
However, some more experienced gentleman drivers are tempted to move on to the competition stage, always between gentleman drivers, but they don’t know how to do it. This section is dedicated to them. It brings some information about structures/championships we know. The list is not exhaustive. We will gladly complete it with any useful information.

This longevity is explained by the formula perfectly adapted to the participants : a unique state of mind, turned towards the Gentleman Drivers who come to fight for the pleasure and in the respect of the other drivers. And therefore, a lot of conviviality ! The field is composed of GT cars or similar : Porsche Cup, GT3, GT4, Ferrari Challenge, RS01, TCR, Silhouettes, etc. The races can be done with 1 or 2 drivers. The format is proven : 2 races of one hour at each meeting, over one day. With driving the day before to manage its partners relations and prepare the race… So, a significant amount of driving time over the weekend. And, since 2022, each driver does a qualifying session which determines the grid for each round ! Since 2021, Pirelli is the exclusive partner of the ROSCAR GT CHALLENGE…
