GP2 Series and GP3 Series organisers confirm that an extra round will be added to the current 2015 calendar. The event will take place at Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir on November 19-20-21 alongside FIA Six Hours Of Bahrain. This event will be back-to-back with the final round of the season which will be held at Yas Marina Circuit.
GP2 and GP3 SeriesTM CEO Bruno Michel said:
“I am pleased to confirm that we have added Sakhir to our 2015 GP2 and GP3 calendar in November. Ever since the announcement of the cancellation of the German event, we have been working hard to try and add a round for both Series.
“It was important that we could keep the costs down for the teams, but also to find a venue that was an added value for the drivers. Bahrain International Circuit was the best option: not only is it a Formula One track, but it makes perfect sense to have it back-to-back with the final round of the season in Abu Dhabi.”
