Curious about this year’s GP2 and British F3 International series? Both have recently published their 2009 calendars, which you can check out on our race dates page.
The 12-date GP2 main season kicks off in March with pre-season testing at two European circuits, Paul Ricard and Barcelona. The teams and drivers will return to Barcelona in May for the first race.
UK fans of the series will see it come to Silverstone as part of the 60th British Grand Prix weekend on June 20 and 21.
GP2 then calls at a number of classic circuits including the Nurburgring, Monza and Spa-Francorchamps, before ending its year at the new Portimao track on Portugal’s Algarve on September 19-20.
Meanwhile British F3 International swings into action from April at Oulton Park with an itinerary that visits to all your favourite UK venues, including Silverstone (twice), Donington and Snetterton.
It also crosses the channel for three European dates at Hockenheim, Bucharest and Spa-Francorchamps before its UK finale at Brands Hatch in September.
