Race calendar and resultsEdit

On 20 October 2011 the series schedule was announced, consisting of ten races at nine circuits. Sakhir will return and replaces the round at the Yas Marina Circuit.[19] Following the 4 May incident at Fuji International Speedway during the 500km Super GT event that severely injured Porsche driver Tim Bergmeister, an investigation of the crash and numerous wheel failures found during the Barcelona round led to officials moving the round to the Hungaroring, making that round a two-race weekend, with the replacement race on Saturday and the regular round on Sunday.[20]
