The provisional calendar for the 2020 season was revealed today during Stephane Ratel’s annual press conference ahead of the Total 24 Hours of Spa.
Monza will open the season and remains in its traditional date (17-19 April), followed by the opening sprint race at Brands Hatch (2-3 May). The long-established endurance races at Silverstone (9-10 May) and Circuit Paul Ricard (29-30 May) will follow, after which competitors will head to Spa for the annual test days on 16-17 June.
Two sprint races will precede next year’s 24 Hours, firstly at Zandvoort (26-28 June) and then Misano (3-5 July). The marquee race will be staged over the final weekend of July (23-26 July), which will see the Total 24 Hours of Spa run as a GT race for the 20th time.
After the August break, the season will resume at the Nurburgring (4-6 September). In the only change to next year’s calendar, this will revert to an endurance event.
Two sprint races will close the season: first at Hungaroring (25-27 September) and then at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (9-11 October).
