In Stuttgart Cup, Efrin Castro can claim his first International GT Championship with races at Watkins Glen, VIR and COTA. The Maranello Cup horse race is between 2016-17 Champion Steve Hill, Barry Fromberg, Colin Cohen and Rob Metka.
The 2016 & 2017 champions have been crowned at the final race of the season. So, what will it take to claim the BRM watches in 2018? Strong finishes amongst good competition, great fun and sportsmanship and a little luck. But isn’t that what International GT is all about?
