Fast cars with an amazing look and 

marvellous sound.


In 2017 a new official Benelux Championship starts, the GT & Prototype Challenge powered by HANKOOK.  Initiator behind this series is V-Max Racing Management, well known for the International Dutch Supercar Challenge which it organizes since 2001.

This new series is open to the fastest category GT’s and open and closed Prototypes. 

There are are 6 events on the tracks of Zandvoort and Assen in the Netherlands and at Zolder and Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.  At each event there are two free practices of 40 minutes , a qualification of 30 minutes and two races of 60 minutes.  



The GT Division is open for all GT3 type of cars of manufacturers  like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Audi and Mercedes. But also GT cars as raced in the Supercar Challenge before like the Mosler MT900, Pumax RT and Vipers are also welcome. All cars with a power of 500 HP as a minimum and a great sound.  


The second part of the startgrid is reserved for three divisions of Prototypes . The new closed P3 Prototypes from manufacturers like Ligier, Ginetta and Norma. The second group for the CN cars like the Wolf, Norma, Praga R1Turbo and Radical SR8 and the third group for cars like the Radicals SR3 and Praga R1.

Some of these cars like the Ligier and Ginetta P3 and CN Proto's already competed in the Supercar Challenge in the last two years but with  the introduction of this new series they will have their own official Championship.

The new GT & Prototype Challenge will go her own way, but will also be present at four events together with the Supercar Challenge to share several facilities like the Hospitality and TV coverage.


The P3 Prototypes became very popular in a remarkably short time. Ligier has already orders for more than 

75 cars and they have already delivered a lot of cars to their customers. The four other manufacturers, like Ginetta and Norma, are also very busy with these very nice race cars. With these cars you can join the real endurance races, but because of the low running costs they are also extremely suitable for one hour racing.


The provisional calendar consist 6 events: 


The race format for the weekend consists two free practices of 40 minutes, a qualification of 30 minutes and two races of 60 minutes plus 1 lap, one on Saturday and one on Sunday.

During both races there is a mandatory pit stop of 60 seconds for an optional drivers change. There will be a result based handicap system with a maximum of 30 extra seconds to be added to the minimum pit stop time.

The GT division is open for drivers with a Bronze FIA rating as maximum. In the other divisions a second driver with a Silver Rating is allowed. The organisation has to right to add handicap seconds to the mandatory pit stop time.
