With no Monaco on the GP3 calendar this year, a replacement round has been organised at Valencia Ricardo Tormo (the road course, not the street track):
GP3 Series organisers are pleased to announce Round 2 of the 2013 season will be held in Valencia at the Circuit de Ricardo Tormo on 15-16 June. This will be a standalone event for GP3 in a season which features eight rounds in total, seven of which will run alongside Formula 1, with the season finale in Abu Dhabi.
The schedule for Valencia race weekend will see the practice session run on Saturday with qualifying later on the same day, whilst the two races will be run on Sunday.
GP3 Series CEO Bruno Michel commented, “We are happy to announce that Valencia has been added to the calendar. It will be the first time that the Series will race at Circuit de Ricardo Tormo. 2013 promises to be a very strong season for GP3 with the introduction of the GP3/13 car, recording a laptime 4.2 seconds quicker than its previous generation on the same track. The driver line-up is probably the strongest we have ever had. I can’t wait for the season to start in Barcelona next month.”
