MAIN RACE - MONZA - Blancpain GT Series Endurance 2019 - ENGLISH

  • Published: 14 April 2019
  • The 2019 season will see SRO Motorsports Group unite the sprint-format championships formerly known as the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup, Blancpain GT Series Asia and Pirelli World Challenge GT to form a new global initiative: the Blancpain GT World Challenge.
    This exciting international endeavour will present GT3 manufacturers, partners and teams with the chance to compete in worldwide customer racing and measure the success of their achievements on a truly global scale.
    Each series will retain its present status as an individual championship and will be known as Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe, Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia and Blancpain GT World Challenge America.
    Drawing inspiration from the concept successfully pioneered in the Intercontinental GT Challenge, where manufacturers compete through local teams, each GT3 manufacturer will be able to establish a line-up of 12 drivers who will score points for their brand in the overall Blancpain GT World Challenge.
    They will be split across the three continental sprint series, with four competing in the GT World Challenge Europe, four in the GT World Challenge America and four in the GT World Challenge Asia.
    To fully integrate all classes of driver, each group must include a star (classified as Platinum); a good professional (classified Gold); an up-and-coming driver or a very experienced non-professional (classified Silver); and a Gentleman driver or former star (classified Bronze).
    With major manufacturers striving to demonstrate their excellence in the competitive arena of international customer racing, the new Blancpain GT World Challenge will take on-track competition to a new level in 2019 and beyond.

      They should put how which teams did the mandatory pit stop or not and which are on which tyre. Similar to F1, easier to follow the action. You AFK for a bit and different teams are on different leading positions. You don't know if the ones leading are about to pit or not.

        @Dexter Lua Well they would need the whole screen to display all of that.

        As a fan of motorsport I find the coverage of Blancpain GT series ‘distressing’. Whoever is producing the signal has zero interest in racing. There are no inside cockpit views. There is no following on the battles. In Monza, Dennis Lind gave a master class of badass driving (from 16 to podium) but whoever was in charge of the coverage didn’t give a damn about that.
        They have either a software just rotating cameras, or someone who really dislikes the sport.
        I know what to do this Saturday, I’m going to race online. Much more fun that watching this heartless emission. Sorry but the emission is very disappointing.

          @CN MG Well they did show a lot of battles to be honest, also why would you want to watch onboards? You have a better overview from the outside.

          @CHILLI 112 I agree the first 30 minutes are 'ok', but the rest... not a single battle and not a single inside cockpit take, just random shots like the replay of a videogame. Ridiculous

              Whats the difference between full course yellow and safety car?

                Mani 1610  3 weeks back

                @Davvy Jannes Well the FCY in Le Mans for example is simply a speed Limit and I think it's the same for Blancpain. I think it's 60 or 80 km/h in most series.

              • Mani 1610
                Mani 1610  3 weeks back

                @Mat Watson The Blancpain GT Series is a GT Series.

                @Davvy Jannes Thanks. Ive recently got into Sim Racing and am playing ACC. Can GT3 cars race in a GT series?

              • Davvy Jannes
                Davvy Jannes  2 months back

                Full course yellow (FCY) means they all reduce speed by a certain percentage (depends on the series for what the percentage is, but usually around 40%). Where all timing gaps between each car must remain the same, ie: if the 3rd place car is 2.5 seconds behind the 2nd place car at the beginning of the FCY, then it must be 2.5 seconds behind on the green flag restart. These FCY's are used when the area to be cleared on track won't take long and isn't spread all over the track, so the volunteer track workers are not on the tarmac itself and are off-track cleaning debris, cars, etc. Under FCY and 30+ cars on the track, they could be strung-out around it so that there is a car going by an accident incident every few seconds. Not very safe for the track workers if they need to be on the course itself.

                Under a safety car (SC) all the cars can get as close to the car in front of them as they can without passing. All time gaps between positions before the SC are erased and they all line-up nose to tail behind the SC. This is for when the track workers need to be on the track cleaning debris. With all the cars together the track workers have more time each lap to clear debris before the cars come around again. This makes it far safer for the workers.

                The leader of a race never wants to see a SC and have any time lead disappear. They far prefer a FCY. While everyone else sees it as a good opportunity to maybe gain a place, or more, on the restart.

                I take it you are somewhat new to racing --- enjoy!! It should never hurt to ask a question and I think it's a shame no one else answered your question that is now 3 days old. Hope that description made sense how I wrote it, with the web today there was probably never a better time for choices of racing to watch. Once more, enjoy.

                  Unless you are in a top level of Motorsport there really isn't any money to made. Even in Formula 1, Williams F1 Team doesn't have enough money to be competitive. But they, like many others keep on racing because that's what they were born to do!

                          Great race. I severely hate that the windscreen number display flashes the driver's initials for like ten seconds in every sector. Every camera shot where I'm looking for the place number it's letters instead. I know their damn names. Maybe do it once at the start/finish. Otherwise I love Blancpain though.

                            Well it's supposed to be a service for the fans that are at the track, they don't see the TV picture most of the times.

                          Fantastic race, mixed conditions made it very unpredictable with a few turning points. I've been following the series since 2012 and it's still delivering top level of sportscar competition. 46 cars of the same class, that's unique.

                            1:14:30 This, if he still gets a similar penalty for yelling and pointing. For 56:41
                            2:05:02 - 2:05:34 74 loses the position fairly and impatiently wedges his way into 87's blind spot. Then the announcers sound like they're eating.

                                    The Mercedes hit standing water on the edge of the track, not exactly sure how that's "poor driving" other then him not seeing the puddles.

                                      It's between this, Super GT, and IMSA for me. But for a pure gt3 series, Blancpain beats everyone imo.

                                    I wonder what they have to do to the 488 in order to compete. A friend of mine has a 488 and that thing is a complete rocketship! Are they tuned down at all in order to comply with the rules in GT3? If not then these are cars are just insane! That Lambo is slaughtering the field, amazing!

                                      Is this a serious question? Lol, pretty much all cars in this series have less hp then the road cars. How fast the factory car is is irrelevant to how fast they are in these races that have BOP rules

                                      Yeah the cars on the grid are pushing around 500-600hp so a lot of them have restrictors to limit the power

                                    Love the streams, possibly the best motor sports on the planet. However, the live stream degraded badly to 240p resolution, to the point where I could not watch it live. There was no degradation to the earlier GT4 streams.

                                        Thanks for the race, but the video organization seems a bit...disorganized? Neither this race or qualifying in whole is in the Blancpain GT Europe playlist, only short highlights and promos. Also wish Blancpain GT Asia and the California 8 hours were available to USA viewers to stream.
