GT3 Open – Manchester, UK – 31st July 2016

The Digital Slot Car Association is proud to present the first GT3 Open. Teams of two drivers are invited to participate.

GT3 Open is a trial event for a series we are planning in 2017 called GT3 Euroseries 1/32. The series, cars and race events are based on the Blancpain Endurance Series. We later hope to hold several events across Europe to the same format that we will race in Manchester this July.
