Two changes of venue for 2018. Brno returns to the calendar after a 6 year break, the other addition is a brand new track in the San Juan province of Argentina.
Losing out are Lausitz – which for a while was thought to be losing all racing after a change of ownership but thankfully not – and perhaps surprisingly Jerez is out as well.
There are also a number of date changes. The gap between opening rounds moves from 2 weeks to 4 weeks. In turn, round 3 is pushed back 2 weeks.
Laguna Seca and Misano switch places.
These changes create a massive 10 week summer break between Misano (8 July) and Portimao (16 September)!
The middle of the schedule and the last four rounds are on alternate weeks.
