SRO’s latest initiative to provide a competitive, enjoyable environment for Bronze and Silver-graded drivers will once again grace a number of the continent’s premier circuits, with Imola, Italy set to serve as the season-opener (1-3 April) for an expanded six-event, twelve-race schedule.
The category will break new ground with a visit to the Styrian mountains, and the Red Bull Ring, on 20-22 May, before heading back to Misano on 2-3 July.
High-power performance models from the likes of Audi, Porsche, KTM, Lamborghini and the all-new Brabham BT63 will then continue on to form an integral part of the SRO Spa Speedweek programme at the iconic Belgian venue on 22-24 July.
Valencia serves as the penultimate event of the series’ sophomore campaign on 17-18 September, with Circuit Paul Ricard set to bring down the curtain on another year four weeks later (15-16 October).
As per this season, drivers will still be eligible to compete in pairs or as solo entries across two 50-minute races at each event. With the competitive debut of the Brabham in Le Castellet, five GT2 manufacturers will be available to choose from in 2022.
Races will continue to be live-streamed at each event, with a whole host of hospitality options available to ensure a complete package for drivers, both on and off-circuit.
“After a positive debut season for the Fanatec GT2 European Series, we are pleased to present the calendar for 2022,” commented SRO Motorsports Group founder and CEO, Stéphane Ratel.
“Once again, our events will take place on some of Europe’s most historic and premier circuits, with exciting new rounds, offering our drivers the perfect opportunity to unleash these fantastic cars on circuits well-suited to their characteristics.
“What we have strived to build over the last year is a championship where gentleman drivers can enjoy competitive racing in fantastic machinery and have an equally enjoyable time off-circuit socialising with their fellow drivers, guests and family in hospitality.
“One of my favourite aspects of this season has been the atmosphere between everybody involved in the category and preserving and building on this is definitely one of our priorities as we look to the future.
“GT2 is also developing into a very attractive platform for manufacturers, and it was great to see Brabham making their debut at Paul Ricard ahead of a full homologation for the future. My expectation is that more will follow as the category continues to develop and flourish.”
