The idea for an additional, series for later GT cars was spawned by the one-off Masters GT4 Trophy at the 2022 Silverstone Classic. Run in association with SRO Motorsports to celebrate the latter’s anniversary, the two races at Silverstone led to an influx of interest from existing competitors as well as new teams and drivers. This has resulted in the decision to create a new series for GT4 cars outside the current homologation as well as opening-up the grid to one-make Cup, Challenge and Trophy cars. The new Masters GT Trophy series will be based on a class structure split into three different year groups (2007-11, 2012-14 and 2015-18); and then further into three classes (Corse, Cup and GT4). A six-round European calendar that includes three events in the UK and three on the Continent offering one qualifying session followed by two races of varying durations during the weekend will be trialled in the 2023 season.
