Race Calendar

The race calendar of the Auto GP comprised eight race weekends, one event more than the previous year. While the Auto GP had played each race in the WTCC weekend in the last season, found in the 2013 season, only the first three events together with the WTCC instead. The race in Valencia, Portimao, Curitiba and Sonoma were deleted. Along with the partial separation of the WTCC events in America have been deleted, so that the calendar included seven races in Europe and one in Africa.

In the second half of the season we went on the following newly added routes: the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello, the Nurburgring, Donington Park and the Brno Circuit Silverstone Circuit. At Silverstone, we drove in the Blancpain Endurance Series in Mugello at ACI Racing Weekend, at the Nürburgring in the DTM, at Donington in the Superstars Series and in Brno within the ETC Cup.
