Mercedes-AMG is the brand to beat in 2024, as it seeks a sixth consecutive world crown. The Affalterbach brand will once again face its main national rivals, BMW, Porsche and Audi bringing their racing machines. Ferrari and Lamborghini represent the Italian supercar sector, while McLaren continues its quest for supremacy.

The British contingent is doubled this year, Aston Martin entering the fray for the first time with its new generation of Vantage AMR GT3. Ford becomes the first American brand to participate in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Powered by AWS, with its new Mustang GT3, which is highly anticipated on the international scene.

The format remains unchanged, with each brand represented by its customer teams in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Powered by AWS continental series in Europe, Asia, America and Australia. Points are awarded in all categories, based on the length of the race and the number of cars competing.
