Ricard to host equalisation test

The Avon Tyres British GT Championship has revealed that equalisation tests for the GT4 class will take place at the Paul Ricard circuit in France in March.

The issue of equalisation became a bone of contention during the 2008 campaign as the Ginetta G50 stamped its authority on the GT4 class – winning each race over the course of the year. It led to the Beechdean Motorsport team pulling out of the series after the Rockingham weekend while at the end of the year, series organisers SRO announced that the G50 wouldn't be eligible for the GT4 class and would instead have to run in the new Supersports class.

That decision was then reversed to allow the G50 back into the class for which it was designed by the British car-maker and it will now take part in the equalisation tests to ensure a balance of performance during the year ahead.

"The balance of performance tests at Paul Ricard will include the Ginetta G50 and other eligible GT4 cars," SRO Motorsports Group general manager Bernadette Fitzsimons said. "The results of this equalisation will be to balance the Ginetta G50 and the other GT4 marques against each other, creating performance parity across the GT4 grid.

"The key to British GT4 is diversity and affordability. Once equalisation is complete we are confident that the GT4 grid alone will have at least 12 cars and five marques and we look forward to its further expansion."
