Race calendar and results[edit]

  • An eight-round provisional calendar was revealed on 2 November 2012.[32] This was modified on 7 February 2013,[33] after GT Sport organisers, for practical and technical reasons, moved the Algarve event one week earlier and replaced the Hungaroring event with a race in Jerez, moving it two weeks earlier. All rounds will support the International GT Open series.
