For silver, bronze and Supersport!

The season has gone by far too quickly... Even if Silverstone only seems like yesterday, we are now already heading for the last round of this season's GT4 European Cup. Magny Cours in France will host the two ultimate races of the year, with still some questions unanswered.

Of course Paul Meijer secured his title in Portimao, as did his team Rhesus Racing Aston Martin, but we still don't know who will be on the Flying Dutchman's left and right hand side at the prize giving ceremony. RS Williams Aston Martin driver Michael Mallock is now second, but just one point ahead of Matt Nicoll-Jones in his IMS Ginetta G50 in third. The battle between the Aston and the Ginetta will be very interesting and open.

Meanwhile Lucas Ordonez and Jordan Tresson showed good pace in Portimao and both Nissan drivers are in a strong position to complete the top-5 of the championship. Especially the Playstation GT Academy 2010 winner is keen to perform on his home track after his first career podium in Portugal.

In the team championship RS Williams and IMS Ginetta will decide who will grab silver and who will get bronze.

In Supersport, nine points separate Gianni Giudici and Athanasios Ladas, with another 20 to be gained.

It's the second time in the history of the GT4 European Cup that Magny Cours hosts the series. In 2007 Eric De Doncker won both races and secured the first ever GT4 title on the former French F1 track.

Lotus is also back, with at least one Lotus Evora GT4, whereas Belgian teams John's Racing, Speedlover and DVB Racing will race their Aston, Porsche and BMW.
