The longest running motorsport series in the Middle East will celebrate an historic 10th season with the introduction of a title sponsor for the first time, thanks to a new partnership with Best Water Technology (BWT), a global leader in the manufacturing of water treatment systems.
The championship will now be known as the Porsche BWT GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East.
In previous editions, the season consisted of 12 races held over six intense weekends on the world-class Middle East circuits. But the forthcoming season is ready to offer four further races – season 10 will now comprise 16 races across six weekends, held between the Dubai Autodrome, Yas Marina Circuit, and Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).
The new season gets under way at the Dubai Autodrome on November 16, before moving to BIC the following weekend. The championship will then head back to the UAE to test drivers again in Dubai followed by Yas Marina Circuit, with the final decisive rounds in Bahrain. The season will conclude with an official support race to the 2019 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix in March 2019, the only regional racing series to do so.
