The GT World Challenge Europe: a renowned competition
In 2022, the DLC One racing team has decided to compete in the GT World Challenge Europe. This motor racing championship is organised by SRO Motorsports Group. It consists of 10 races divided equally between the Endurance Cup and the Sprint Cup. Each event involves two races over a weekend with two drivers per car and a mandatory pit stop.
Between modernity and competition, the GT World Challenge Europe is at the forefront of international motor racing. E-sports races, for example, are organised during each event. A driver is designated as a virtual driver by each participating team and he has the possibility to award championship points to his team if he wins.
