Conceived and promoted by Zwartkops, G&H Transport Extreme Supercars is a category of circuit car racing aimed to provide a high end racing series for GT cars incorporating high performance saloon cars as the main crowd attraction for the spectators at Extreme Festivals.
Currently run in Time-Based classes, G&H Transport Extreme Supercars aims to provide racing that is rewarding for the competitor and sponsor, and exciting for the spectator, while showcasing modern cars and recognizable brands to each year declare a class winner for each class and an overall champion.
An invitational class, Extreme Supercars must be based on a production model of a GT or high performance saloon car on sale since 1999. The top class consists of a mixture of GT3 spec cars and locally built GT cars, with the Zwartkops lap record being held by the GT3-spec Lamborghini Gallardo at 60.8sec. The bulk of the current field of cars is made up of Lamborghinis, Ferrari's, Porsches and BMWs, with the odd McLaren, Alfa and Ford GT also making an appearance.
Cars that break out move immediately to the class above, while Class A and D cars suffer 5-place grid penalties and Extreme Supercars is a no bumping series with a yellow card points penalty and exclusion system in place.
