Winter Series kick-off with three series from 11-14 January in Estoril

For ambitious gentleman drivers and aspiring young talents, GEDLICH Racing offers the Winter Series championships in Portugal and Spain from January to March. With the established GT Winter Series for GT3 and Cup cars as well as the GT4 Winter Series and the Prototype Winter Series, the platform offers a wide range of opportunities for teams and drivers. The Formula Winter Series will be added to the calendar from February.

The season will open with a double-header in Portugal. The Winter Series will kick off on the legendary Estoril circuit from 11 to 14 January. Just one week later, the racing series will make a guest appearance on the Portimão hill and valley circuit, where Formula 1 last raced in 2021.

Events in Spain will follow in February and March. The racing series organised by GEDLICH Racing will be held in Jerez (08/02 – 11/02), Valencia (15/02 – 18/02), Aragón (29/02 – 03/03) and at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (07/03 – 10/03).

From a team perspective, the Winter Series events offer planning security thanks to a clear political situation and simple logistics, as the journey is made by truck. Thanks to the double-header concept and a sensible sequence of dates, it is possible for participants to take part in two consecutive race weekends with one journey and a short transport route between the race tracks. In addition, the teams have the option of leaving the lorries and race cars on the Iberian Peninsula between the events, so that only one journey to and from the Winter Series is necessary, which is not only sustainable, but also saves a lot of time and money.

Entries for the respective series are still being accepted and one or two teams still have a cockpit to offer.
