LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Dec. 15, 2020) – The GT Celebration Race Series, designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, today announced an impressive 2021 seven-weekend schedule at a variety of popular and legendary road racing circuits in the United States featuring GT3, GT4 and TCC (TCR) sports cars with FIA bronze-rated drivers beginning at the historic Sebring International Raceway as part of Sebring “Speedweek.”

After a productive inaugural campaign with five race weekends in 2020 despite working around the COVID-19 restrictions, the GT Celebration Race Series has expanded to seven events for 2021 with the season opener set for March 12-14 at the 3.74-mile, 17-turn road course which has been a legendary track for some 70 years.

Bringing decades of motorsports experience to the GT Celebration Race Series with its stellar race staff, the first sports car racing season proved to display strong competition with a unique fun atmosphere. The competitive on-track action with the two levels of vehicle classes, RED and YELLOW, was basically incident-free, with the exception of two separate single car incidents, for the entire season.

With exotic auto manufacturers from the likes of Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Mercedes and Porsche, the GT Celebration Race Series made for wheel-to-wheel action in the doubleheader race weekends that featured a 45-minute and two 30-minute practice sessions on Friday (the only day driver coaches are permitted to drive to assist with setup). The Saturday and Sunday schedules consist of a 30-minute practice, 20-minute qualifying, and 40-minute race.

In addition to the Sebring season-opening weekend, the GT Celebration Race Series schedule will include Thunderhill Raceway Park in California on April 9-11, Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta on May 6-8, Circuit of the Americas (COTA) on July 30-August 1, Road America on August 13-15, Utah Motorsports Campus on Sept. 17-19 and Sonoma Raceway on Oct. 15-17.

“We knew our inaugural race season would be a challenge, especially with COVID-19 constraints, but the series enjoyed some outstanding racing and a great atmosphere for the teams, drivers and sponsors,” said Rob Morgan, GT Celebration Founder and CEO. “We were thrilled with the level of racing with great teams and will believe the 2021 series will continue that momentum with expanded fields at legendary racing facilities. We can’t wait to get started in 2021.”

Morgan’s group also announced a pre-season testing event scheduled in February 2021 at a site to be named in the near future.

The first season of the GT Celebration tour was highlighted by top professional teams such as Flying Lizard Motorsports, TruSpeed Autosport, Vali Motorsports, Harward Media/Zelus Motorsports, GMG Racing, Compass Racing, Cameron Racing, Rearden Racing, Derhaag Racing, Daskalos Racing and NOLAsport.

Seven different automobile makes took victories in the initial GT Celebration Race Series with six drivers capturing wins in the YELLOW class and four separate drivers stepping to the top of the Victory Lane podium in the RED category.

Winning the series championships in the 2020 GT Celebration Race Series were Andy Wilzoch of Denver, Colo., in the No. 46 Flying Lizard Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3R to the RED class driver points (with seven race wins and six pole positions) and Alexander Marmureanu of Los Angeles, Calif., in the YELLOW category with the No. 114 Flying Lizard Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3R.

For taking the overall championship Wilzoch was awarded entry fees paid by GT Celebration for the entire 2021 season.
