The Blancpain GT Series will start with round one of the Blancpain Endurance Series at Monza on April 12-13.
The Blancpain GT Series 2014 season has started with the first of two official test days at the Paul Ricard circuit at Le Castellet. No fewer than 42 cars took a shot at the 5,791 km. long ribbon of French asphalt. Most teams were content to perform a thorough shakedown on their cars, but there were some notable exceptions.
It was the #42 Sport Garage Ferrari 458 Italia who had the honour of opening the 2014 season of the Blancpain GT Series. The red machine was the first to leave at 09:00 sharp, closely followed by the #23 Reiter Engineering Camaro GT3. The black American car was one of the sensations of the first day of testing, with its 7,9 litre V8 producing a mesmerizing sound.
Tomorrow is the second and final day of the official test days for the Blancpain GT Series, with a couple of drivers who did not come into action today. Among them reigning FIA GT Series champion Laurens Vanthoor and former Formula One-driver Nelson Piquet Jr.
