Tickets are now on sale for the third Fanatec GT Europe contest of 2023 at Circuit Paul Ricard, which stages its annual six-hour race over the weekend of 2-4 June.
As ever, the French event promises to be one of the highlights of the season. In terms of duration it is second only to the marquee CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa, with a 18:00 CEST start time ensuring that the action begins in daylight and concludes in darkness. In between, there is the spectacular sight of GT3 cars racing against the setting sun and the ever-popular rooftop party, which features DJ sets and an unbeatable view of the track.
The weekend also features a high-level support line-up that includes the first-ever race for McLaren Trophy Europe, a new series that caters for the British marque's Artura Trophy and 570S Trophy models. Further action comes from the Lamborghini Super Trofeo and GT4 European Series, with the latter bolstered by competitors from GT4 Scandinavia.
GT1 Sports Club Powered by Curbstone will also join the event with its incredible array of hyper-sports cars from the world's leading manufacturers. There will be esports competition in the paddock, too, with the Fanatec Esports GT Pro Series staging its 60-minute Assetto Corsa Competizione race on Friday evening and the new SRO Esports Sim Pro Series doing the same on Saturday.
Track activity begins on Friday 2 June with the Bronze Test (09:00) and Pre-Qualifying (19:40), as well as practice sessions for all three support series. Qualifying takes place at 11:05 on Saturday, followed by plenty of support action. The main event gets rolling at 18:00, when Fanatec GT Europe begins its race against the setting sun.
There is still plenty of action to enjoy on Sunday. McLaren Trophy Europe, Lamborghini Super Trofeo and the GT4 European Series will all stage their second races of the weekend, while the GT1 runners will be on-track for a pair of 25-minute sessions. As such there will be activity from 09:00 until 16:05.
