CalendarEdit

The calendar for 2009 saw the total number of races drop from 22 to 20. Three overseas events remain, with the 24 Hours of Spa-supporting event the only one to remain from 2008. However, the Monza 1000km-supporting races and the FIA GT-support event in Bucharest were dropped to be replaced by the series' first visit to Germany and to Hockenheim, and also a visit to the brand-new Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal.[2] Thruxton and Croft have also been dropped to be replaced with a second meeting at Silverstone. Donington's meeting was originally scheduled for 26 April, however due to ongoing issues with the circuit's track licence, the meeting was rescheduled for 19 July.[3]
