The 2014 Auto GP World Series calendar has finally been announced, and the series will run alongside the World Touring Car Championship, DTM and European Le Mans Series this year.
It has also been confirmed that Eurosport will show Auto GP live throughout all eight rounds of 2014.
The opening three rounds will follow the WTCC to Marrakech in Morocco, Paul Ricard in France and to the Hungaroring in Hungary. The fourth event sees the Coloni-run series support the Italian GT Championship at Monza.
A race weekend at the Spielberg track in Austria supporting the European Le Mans Series follows in July, before supporting the DTM series at the Nurburgring in August.
The final two rounds have yet to be announced. Last year saw two races held in the United Kingdom, supporting the Blancpain Series at Silverstone before racing at Donington Park supporting the Superstars series. The other race that is currently not on the schedule that was in 2013 is the race at the Masaryk Circuit in the Czech Republic.
“Auto GP is very pleased to continue the collaboration with the WTCC, a consistent partnership that has enabled our drivers to race in an excellent environment and with spectacular crowds over the last few years,” said Enzo Coloni, the Auto GP series boss.
“The same goes for the DTM. We started cooperating with them last season and we look forward to a successful path for the future.
“For the first time we will also line-up together with the ELMS championship.
“We will shortly announce the two final round of the season and there might be some great surprises coming…”
