Changing of date for the 2009 season fourth round. The 1000 Km of the Nurburgring, originally scheduled on the 29th/30th of August, will take place one week ahead, on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of August.
Actually, this small alteration of the calendar avoids a clash with the Spa-Francorchamps Formula 1 Grand Prix. So, the spectators have the possibility to attend two international motorsport events within two following weekends time! Let's remember that the Nurburgring and Spa-Francorchamps circuits are only 170 kilometres-far from each other.
Besides, the number of races is fixed: five races on the 2009 calendar, but an additional test session will be organised on April 22/23, so that the teams can test their cars and drivers with less cost by bringing together a maximum of teams on the Bugatti circuit.
