Welcome to Sonoma, California!

This picturesque small town is the heart of Californias wine region and welcomes visitors with a rich, long history.

Before strolling through town and spending the day and evening in the many restaurants and enjoying the local wines, we will visit the Sonoma Raceway.

Since its opening in 1968 it's seen a lot of racing. From LMP1s to IndyCars, Nascar, Superbikes and Touring Cars all the way to drag racing, it's been a fixed location in american motor sports.

Now it's hosting the season opener of our GT3 Season 10.

Expect our early morning Qualifying under Heavy Clouds.
The start of the race will see Heavy Clouds transitioning into Medium Clouds as the sun rises and heats up the Sonoma valley.

Sync-to-race weather progression.

Welcome to Templeton, New Zealand!

Round 2 of the AOR GT3 Season 10 visits the Mike Pero Motorsport Park, formerly known as Powerbuilt Raceway at Ruapuna Park.

Just 13km outside of Christchurch, New Zealand, it's a permanent fixture in local racing. Series such as NZ Formula Ford, New Zealand V8s or the Porsche GT3 Cup visit the venue regularly with the local racing school developing new talent.

Make sure to visit Christchurch after the race, and get to know New Zealands largest city.
Stroll through Christchurchs farmers market before maybe taking a trip into the mountains, the Southern Alps for some skiing. Or possibly take in New Zealands breathtaking scenery, volcanoes and green hills that inspired many and served as a backdrop for TV and movie productions, such as the Lord of the Rings.

But pack an umbrella! New Zealand is known for its wet climate.

We will be in luck with a dry qualifying under an overcast sky.
The race will transition from rain into overcast conditions.

Welcome to Indianapolis, Indiana!

We're stopping in the state capital for our longest GT3 race yet, a special 1.5h test of concentration, consistency and equipment.

While the rest of the USA celebrates the 4th of July, we'll have our own festivities, celebrating motor sports, racing through the night at this legendary venue.

Before heading to the speedway for the evenings race, take a stroll through the City Market, founded in 1821. The ever growing food culture of Indianapolis has much to offer.
Maybe spend the evening at the famous St. Elmos Steak House, which has been open since 1902. Are you tough enough for their signature Shrimp Cocktail, named as the worlds spiciest food?
However hot it is, it won't be as hot as the action we expect on track, starting with a reverse grid into the night.

We expect clear skies for the entire race.

Welcome to Le Mans, France!

After visiting the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, we're visiting another legendary track for another night of racing.

Join us at the Bugatti Circuit, a shorter Layout of the Circuit De La Sarthe. The Bugatti Circuit is a permanent circuit famous for motor bike, Formula 3000 and DTM racing.
Did you know it hosted the 1967 Formula 1 Grand Prix of France?

Before heading for the circuit, enjoy the old town of Le Mans, the street cafes, head for one of the many museums or enjoy the well preserved architecture, some if it dating back to the Romans.

The qualifying and race are expected to be a hot, hazy summer night.

Welcome to Donington Park, Leicestershire, UK!
Trivia: Being located just meters away from Derbyshire, it has a Derby post- and area code.

Between the wars, Donington was already in use as a racing venue, seeing the German silver arrows fighting for the European championship.
During the 2nd world war Donington was used as a vehicle depot for the armed forces. The venue fell into disrepair until bought and rescued by an investor in the 70s.
It became famous for MotoGP, BTCC and GT racing, but also hosted Formula 1, most notably in 1993, where Ayrton Senna dominated the race, finishing with over 1 minute lead over Damon Hill.

Prepare for a qualifying under heavy clouds.

The race will start under heavy clouds and transition into rain.

Welcome to Brno, Czech Republic!

Join us for another round of late night racing, this time in the Czech Republics second largest city, the beautiful, historic Brno.
Enjoy the old town with its many historical sights, but remember to stop by one of the many bars and restaurants to sample the excellent Czech beers.

If you happen to visit Brno in June, make sure to join the Ignis Brunensis (latin for Flame of Brno), an international fireworks competition and festival before heading out to the Masaryk Circuit of Brno.

Similar to the Nürburgring, the Masaryk circuit refers to two tracks, a historic street circuit on public roads, spanning a massive 31km and the modern circuit, opened in 1987 that we will be racing on.

Expect the Qualifying under Medium Clouds and the race transitioning from Medium to Heavy Clouds.

Welcome to Hockenheim, Germany!

Hockenheim, situated in the upper Rhine Valley, promises excellent conditions. The area is also unofficially dubbed Germanys Roadster Alley, due to its warm, sunny climate so you see an unusually high number of convertibles in traffic.
When being in the region, enjoy local beer and wine as well as the much underrated german cousine. Hearty, locally sourced, organic food of the highest quality.
When visiting, stop by at the Auto & Technik Museum in Sinsheim - a must visit for anyone interested in technology or visit the ancient volcanoes in the region, such as the Kaiserstuhl (Emperors chair).

This circuit in the beautiful Rhine Valley has been a permanent fixture in racing since 1932. Since then, the track has undergone several fundamental changes until it found its current layout in 2002.
A fast course with little elevation changes, a smooth surface promises exciting racing for the 120.000 spectators.

Expect Qualifying and Race in Clear conditions. Pack your sunscreen!

Welcome to Watkins Glen, New York!

After starting our season in Sonoma, on the west coast of the United States, we conclude our season on the east coast, in another world famous venue.

Closer to Toronto than New York, this small village has a long tradition of motor racing. To counter the adrenaline filled day, head out into the great outdoors and visit the Watkins Glen state park and enjoy the breathtaking scenery, small waterfalls and lush, green forests. Take a moment at the Rainbow Bridge and falls and take in natures beauty before heading back to the track!

Watkins Glen hosted the Grand Prix of the USA for almost 20 years straight, from 1961 to 1980.
Today it's a major venue in IMSA and NASCAR racing, featuring the famous 6h of the Glen.

The Qualifying will start under Light Clouds and the race will transition from Medium to Heavy Clouds.
