Changing dates for the beginning of Supercars Series.
Dear Teams and Drivers,
A few weeks ago, Portugal had excellent news that will host again a Formula 1 Grand Prix, as a last minute substitute F1 initially Asian rounds.
It is the 2º F1 Grand Prix in Portugal in the last 20 years and even without public is a great national motorsport accomplishment.
However, the F1 date clash with our event at Portimão, so we were kindly invited to move our SUPERCARS race to other weekend. There was a possibility to move the GT4 race for the weekend but that would clash with multiple teams plans.
After a few weeks negotiation, we provisional agreed to race at October 16/17 in Portimao. A weekend that will also host also the French Ligier Championship and Funcup championship.
Our biggest problem was to find a event in Portimão that we could join, in a date that didn’t clash with our other championships, so no team will have a problem to join us. I believe this is a perfect date but we would like to hear from the teams in case someone have a clash with this date.
Otherwise, we will make it public tomorrow afternoon.
So we will start the championship in Jarama, at 5/6 June. This move also will make it easier for English and Brazilian drivers to join us, as regular flights to/from UK and Brasil should be reopen by them.
Otherwise, below you can find our latest calendar.
