Blancpain GT Series Europe

The launch of the Blancpain GT Series Europe 2017 took place in Monza, Italy on April 22nd and 23rd, drawing around 20,000 spectators.

This championship now exported to Asia, and as of next year to the United States, showcasing a development that has turned the Blancpain GT Series into the largest GT series in the world. Over the past nine years, the watch Manufacture has become an international benchmark in GT racing through its partnerships. Blancpain thrives on being in the center of the action by serving as official race timekeeper.

At each event, Blancpain welcomes its guests in a dedicated onsite area. Uniting the worlds of Haute Horlogerie, cutting-edge motorsports and Art de vivre, this is an ideal meeting place for amateur and professional drivers as well as watch enthusiasts. It provides a perfect setting within which devotees of finely made timepieces and cars can meet up and experience a shared passion, as well as following the races live. Guests can also discover the world of gastronomy cherished by Blancpain. Wines as well as gourmet dishes are served during mealtimes. 

This hotspot offers an immersion into the world of the Manufacture Blancpain, thanks to a workshop area where the onsite master-watchmaker gives various demonstrations.
