The calendar for the 2019 Porsche Carrera Cup GB season has been officially announced and will see the return of Thruxton and Croft, plus the addition of Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain, supporting the European Le Mans Series.

The fastest one-make series in the UK will run alongside the BTCC calendar for seven of the eight weekends, kicking off the season at Brands Hatch on the Indy circuit on 5-7 April for the first two rounds.

A visit to Donington Park on 25-28 April is then followed up with a return to Croft for the first time since 2016 on 14-16 June.

Competitors will then visit the undulating Oulton Park on 28-30 June before heading to Southern Europe to join the European Le Mans Series weekend at Circuit de Catalunya, just north of Barcelona on 19-21 July.

Back in the UK, the series heads back to Thruxton on 16-18 August, visiting the high speed circuit for the first time since 2014.
