LIVE GP2 and GP3 opening rounds this weekend on British Eurosport
The sixth edition of the GP2 Series gets underway this weekend in Barcelona, alongside the first European Formula One Grand Prix of the season. In addition, and new for 2010, the GP3 Series launches with the first ever round also from Barcelona.
British Eurosport will broadcast both races from GP2 and GP3, with LIVE coverage from each series.
Throughout the 2010 season, British Eurosport will provide LIVE coverage from each round of the GP2 Series, which visits Silverstone in July before concluding at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi in November.
The series is regarded as the strongest feeder category to Formula One, with 11 GP2 graduates on the F1 starting grid this year. The series can also count Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and Timo Glock among its past champions, while last year's champion Nico Hulkenberg is now racing for Williams in the F1 Championship.
The newly formed GP3 Series will act as a feeder to GP2, giving young and upcoming drivers the chance to develop their skills and take the next step in their driving careers.
