The ‘mothership’ Blancpain GT series is based in Europe.
For 2019 the five Sprint rounds have been renamed Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe to match the Asian and American series.
There are three titles:
- Blancpain GT Endurance, five rounds: 24 Hours of Spa, 1000km Paul Ricard, the other three rounds are 3 hours each;
- Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe, five rounds: 2 x 60 minute sprint races;
- Overall Blancpain GT title combining all 10 rounds into one series;
Teams can compete in the entire series or just decide to do the sprint or endurance cups.
All races are for FIA GT3 cars exclusively. The class structure is based upon driver ratings with a mix of Pro, Pro/Am and Am classes.
