The GT4 Cup is the league's first series. It is heavily orientated towards average GT4 series concept and thus mirrors the usual GT championships and weekend schedules, which contains a 10 minute Qualifying, followed by a race over various lengths.

History

GT4 Cup (2020–present):

After the initiative that lead to the foundation of .Race9, several plans were discussed to get racing underway at .R9. It was quickly decided to run a winter series, car suggestions ranged from open-wheeler series over multi-class racing to touring cars. However, in early October 2020, the decision was made towards a GT4-inspired series.

Race weekend

On Saturdays, drivers have a 10-minute qualifying session. The qualifying session decides the grid order for the race, run over a time of 35 minutes. At endurance events, race length is increased to 75 minutes and a mandatory pitstop is required.
