Zandvoort to replace Baku World Challenge as the final round of the Blancpain Sprint Series

6 June 2015

SRO Motorsports Group has announced that Circuit Park Zandvoort, traditional and popular venue for several SRO race meetings in the past (2011 FIA GT3, 2013 FIA GT Series and 2014 Blancpain Sprint Series) is making a return to the calendar as the final round of the 2015 Blancpain GT Series. The final race weekend of 2015 will take place on October 10th-11th. SRO Motorsports Group made this decision after having been informed that the organizer of the Baku World Challenge will be unable to stage the event due to economic reasons.

This decision has received the unanimous agreement of all teams involved.

Stephane Ratel (Founder and CEO SRO Motorsports Group): “Even though the announcement came as a surprise, with the third edition of the Baku World Challenge having been confirmed as part of a three-year agreement, SRO Motorsports Group would like to thank the promoter, International Concept Event, Aztexnika, Mr Ahad and all who have been involved in the two previous editions of the Baku World Challenge. They were two fantastic events which greatly contributed to the global growth of GT Racing. I am also happy that we have found a fitting alternative by organising the final round of the 2015 Blancpain GT Series on the challenging Zandvoort circuit.”

Erik Weijers (Chief Operating Officer, Circuit Park Zandvoort): "We are obviously very happy to have an opportunity to host the Blancpain GT Series season finale in Zandvoort and to continue our long-term collaboration with the SRO Motorsports Group. We are sure the weekend will bring a fitting conclusion to what already is an exciting season. »
