GT5 Challenge (obviously)
CSCC New Millenium
CSCC Open
750 Roadsports
750 Club Enduro
MSVR Trackday Challenge / Trophy
GT Cup (would be pointless as it'd be in GTA class with GT5 GT4's)
Britcar Production / Endurance

..off the top of my head.

There's a few other options I'm sure, but I'm not familiar enough with them to speak categorically.

GT5 Challenge doesn't run anymore? or is the BARC website out of date? see http://www.barc.net/championships/gt5-challenge

Motorsport UK on ITV Player is worth a watch on demand as I think the last couple of editions have featured some Challenge races.

There's a few regional series like the Welsh Sports and Saloons or DDMC or NW Sports and Saloons series, too.

Certainly very good cars for the up to 2 litre class in CSCC New Millenium and for things like 750 Roadsports and Club Enduro, which are the series I am most familiar with.

Chance to race at Spa with CSCC, too.


And if I was in the market for a G40 to race in New Millenium/ Club Enduro, I think I'd be tempted by this ex Silverstone Race School paddle shift modified version, available from th factory (Sept 2016)
