GP2 Confirms 2011 Calendar

1 Mins read

The GP2 Series has announced its nine-round calendar for 2011, all supporting Formula 1 Grands Prix.

The season will kick off at Istanbul Park in Turkey, which for the first time is the first European race of the Formula 1 season. It will then head to Barcelona and Monte Carlo back-to-back at the end of May. After a month's break the series will resume at the Valencia Street Circuit before travelling to Silverstone. Before the summer break there will be back-to-back rounds at Nurburgring and Budapest, while the season concludes with races at the legendary Spa-Francorchamps and Monza circuits.

There will be two pre-season tests for the GP2 teams – at Silverstone on April 5-6, and then at Barcelona on April 19-20.

Missing from the calendar for 2011 is a round in support of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which in 2010 hosted the season finale.
