To provide the owners of very exclusive sportscars with the opportunity to drive their cars on legendary circuits and in the best possible environment, the SRO Motorsports Group has created the Ultracar Sports Club: two events with four track sessions of 30 minutes each will see these Ultracars’ enormous potential exploited to the fullest.
A new generation of extremely fast sportscars has been unveiled almost simultaneously by four iconic brands: Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and Porsche. The performances and price tags of these powerful machines go beyond the range of cars known as supercars. To name them, the specialised press has introduced a new category: Ultracars.
And their DNA means that the most appropriate environment for them is a race circuit. However, previous experience with the GT1-category has shown that extensively race prepared ‘Ultracars’ did not meet the teams’ budgets.
SRO Motorsports Group feels that the fortunate owners of these exceptional Ultracars should be able to do more than valet park them in front of a palace. And there is no doubt that car aficionados worldwide would love to see these Ultracars in action.
The Ultracar Sports Club, the first and only of its kind, will be reserved solely to Ultracars produced in the last 10 years. During two exclusive events in the context of the Blancpain Endurance Series round at Paul Ricard (20th-21st June) and the Blancpain Sprint Series round of Misano (3rd – 4th October) the Ultracar owners can take to the track during four 30-minute sessions. There will be no timing, no classifications, but the Ultracars will be divided into two classes: homologated road cars on road tyres and non-homologated, track-prepared cars on slick tyres. Tyre fitting service and Pirelli products will be available on site, with the opportunity for other tyre manufacturers to supply models with an exclusive agreement (such as Michelin for Bugatti).
Not only will the Members of the Club receive bespoke ‘Ultracar Sports Club’ racing gear but the condensed 24-hour programme – from lunchtime to lunchtime – means that they can enjoy access to the dedicated Ultracar Village, including a high-level VIP hospitality service, and take a privileged look behind-the-scenes at the Blancpain GT Series.
