There's a switch of dates in the Auto GP calendar. The series maiden race, planned for April 18 in Portimao, will be held in Brno on the April 24-25 weekend.

The championship organization was left with no choice when the Portuguese Automobile Club gave notice that, due to a clashing with the Portuguese national championships in Estoril, it couldn't grant enough marshals for the correct development of the weekend.

This forced Auto GP to search for a new venue and, after examining various options, the Brno track was the best one, securing a perfect weekend development and a really little calendar postponement, just one week.

In Brno, on the Thursday before the races, Auto GP will also hold its first collective testing session, in which all the drivers entered in the series will take part free of charge. For them, and for the teams as well, it will be an occasion to get acquainted with the car and the track.
