Auto GP announces eight-event calendar for 2013

Start Auto GP Marrakech 2012Auto GP has announced its calendar for the 2013 season, which will include eight events and a first trip to Russia.

As was the case in 2012, the season will commence in Monza on March 24.

This year's two America rounds - Curitiba in Brazil and Sears Point in the US - have been dropped, however, with the series instead set to conclude at Brno on October 6.

The rounds were originally introduced with the aim of establishing Auto GP as a global championship.

The first four races - Monza, Marrakech, Hungary and the Moscow Raceway will run as support events to the World Touring Car Championship.

In August, Auto GP will then make its debut at the Nurburgring on the DTM support bill, before heading to Donington Park in the UK alongside Superstars.

The Brno finale will be run alongside the European Touring Car Championship.

An eighth round is scheduled for July but no official decision has yet been taken.

The series has confirmed that all races will be broadcast live on Eurosport.

Series boss Enzo Coloni said the loss of the American rounds had facilitated the addition of an extra event with no impact on overall budgets.

"By renouncing to the two races in America, we gave teams and drivers the chance to add one more round and maintain the same budget," he explained.

"We will be lining-up in Russia, on a new racetrack, and we will also debut at the Nurburgring, a venue that always hosted spectacular races in the past.

"By doing so, we will provide the drivers with the chance to race on the best European venues of Formula 1.

"We are also set to return to Morocco, in an effort to help drivers learn how to tame street courses, with their walls and tight chicanes."
