Winter Series: Two brand-new 6-hour races in 2025!

NEW FOR 2025: TWO 6-HOUR RACES - the unparalleled thrill and challenge of endurance

<h3>GEDLICH Racing’s overall portfolio of series and winter racing weekends grows once more in 2025, as two all-new 6-Hour endurance races will create an exciting new platform for GT teams that favour longer-distance racing.</h3>

In its inaugural season, two races will be held at a pair of Portugal and Spain’s finest venues; the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve and Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. With the race distance set at 1000km or six hours – whichever comes first – and a careful eligibility criteria focused on the fastest cars in premiere-level GT championships, the 6 hour races will be the ideal platform for experienced squadrons competing at the highest levels of global endurance competition, as well as teams taking the first steps into longer-distance formats.

The class format for the 6 Hour races will borrow from our existing GT and GT4 Winter Series. GT3 cars will be permitted in the top class, with a bevy of additional classes for GT2 machinery, as well as the fastest single-make GT racing cars from Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari. GT4 cars and the ever-popular Porsche Cayman GT4 CS will also be permitted, but no cars below that level of performance will be accepted. Equally, Prototypes will continue to race exclusively within the Prototype Winter Series, ensuring that GT teams can take the spotlight.
Cars that fit within the performance window of the 6 Hour races, that are not defined above, will be permitted to enter in the catch-all ‘Cup X’ class.

As with many other GEDLICH racing projects, the 6 Hour races will feature both overall and class rankings, to ensure that competitive outfits in all classes will have trophies to fight for. The series points system is designed to reward the teams that succeed against higher entry numbers within their class, meaning our overall championships are always won on merit.

Qualifying sessions for the race will take place on Saturday, while the 6 Hour itself will be the focus of Sunday. The timetable will be planned to allow for racing into the night on the weekend, providing the complete endurance experience for our competitors. In addition to the main event, there will also be high-calibre support categories in the paddock, ensuring a ‘big’ feel to both weekends.
