After the first half of the GT3 Sprint category season, Marcin Jedlinski is leading the standings ahead of Gregor Zsigo and David Vršecký.
Marcin Jedlinski is well known in the GT3 Endurance series for one simple fact – he has been unbeaten in this season so far and he is dominating the whole grid. And the Olimp Racing driver is doing something similar in the GT3 Sprint races as well. The Polish driver has won 5 out of 6 races so far, as he only had to retire from Race 2 at Hungaroring following technical issues. But as a winner in the five other races, he is leading the Sprint standings with 75 points.
Meanwhile, the last year’s GT3 Sprint champion Gregor Zsigo is currently in 2nd place in the standings. But if the Trevor Racing driver wants to defend his championship crown, he will have to do lots of work. He has only 45 points, which means he is 30 points behind Jedlinski, and that’s much more than he could gain by a single victory.
Two points behind Zsigo is David Vršecký in the 3rd place overall. The Buggyra driver is the only one, who has scored a victory, apart from Jedlinski. It was him, who took the opportunity when Jedlinski had to retire. But Adam Rzepecki in 4th place has also 43 points, just like Vršecký. The Polish driver is having a highly successful season, considering his switch from the Clio Cup cars to a GT scene.
But there are also names like Stanislaw Jedlinski, Piotr Wira or Petr Kačírek. Stanislaw Jedlinski is currently 5th with 42 points, while Piotr Wira, who is having his first year in the GT3 category, is 6th with 36 points in total. Kačírek is right behind him with 35 points. All these drivers have managed to take at least one podium so far and thus show the potential to become race winners. Also, Stanislaw Jedlinski and Petr Kačírek will be able to utilise their vast GT3 experience.
The Round 4 of the season will take place on a weekend July 23-25 at Grobnik, Croatia.
