Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS has revealed a huge full-season entry for the Sprint Cup which starts at Brands Hatch on 13/14 May. No fewer than eight manufacturers will be represented on this year's grid of mouth-watering GT3 supercars, including many of the world's leading prestige marques.
Plenty of eyes will be focussed on the BMW M Team WRT outfit, which has entered four of the five M4 GT3 machines set to appear after switching from Audi. Joining the team in its switch from one manufacturer to another is MotoGP megastar Valentino Rossi, who returns for a second season in succession with new co-driver Maxime Martin, whilst Dries Vanthoor and Charles Weerts are chasing a fourth-straight Sprint title.
Headline additions to this year's grid include two GT3 cars which haven't previously raced at Brands Hatch. Nova Racing will enter a pair of Honda NSXs, whilst three examples of the latest Ferrari 296 GT3 have been entered.
Audi has been a mainstay of the Sprint Cup grid since the series first raced at the Kent venue in 2014, and that's set to continue in 2023 with no fewer than 10 R8 LMS GT3 Evo IIs on the initial list of runners expected at the event. Mercedes-AMG is represented strongly too with three cars expected to appear at the Sprint Cup season opener.
Lamborghini have four cars lined up, whilst Porsche will appear with a single entry. British engineering will be out in fine force this year too, with three McLaren 720S GT3 Evos listed.
30 cars in total are expected to race at Brands Hatch, with the Gold Cup, Pro Cup, and Silver Cup entries contesting the event. Click here to view the full season entry.
