The provisional 2014 calendar for the FIA World Endurance Championship has been modified to take into account the changes recently made to the Formula One calendar. The 6 Hour races at Spa-Francorchamps and Fuji have been moved back one week in May and October respectively, with the only other change being to the race day at the Circuit of The Americas, which will now take place on Saturday 20 September, rather than Sunday 21st as previously announced.

Gerard Neveu, CEO of the FIA WEC, said: “We have made these changes to the 2014 calendar to avoid any clashes with Formula One. Half of the races will now take place on Saturday, which could mean some them finishing under night conditions, and this will allow us to plan some special entertainment such as fireworks at the finish and a concert on Saturday evening to improve the overall package on offer to the fans and to apply the Le Mans race event spirit. We will be presenting this modified calendar to the FIA World Motor Sport Council for ratification at the next meeting.”
