Speedcar announces new calendar
After a successful first season, Speedcar Series is unveiling new and exciting changes ahead of Season 2 scheduled to flag off in December this year.

Former F1 drivers will be back behind the wheel this season along with a host of other new teams and drivers battling it out for a substantial prize pot of 3 million US dollars.

The provisional calendar for the '08-'09 season is as follows:


Circuit Country Event
05-06 December Dubai UAE Grand Racing
23-24 January Sakhir Bahrain Grand Racing
27-28 February Dubai UAE Grand Racing
04-05 April Sepang Malaysia F1 Grand Prix
18-19 April Sakhir Bahrain F1 Grand Prix
24-25 April Dubai UAE Grand Racing

This season will see Speedcar Series run at the Malaysian and Bahrain F1 Grand Prix as well as in stand alone events in conjunction with GP2 Asia under the Grand Racing banner.

Johnny Herbert, the Series' first Champion said, "Racing a Speedcar was a completely new experience for me but it is just such an exciting car and a challenge to drive. The Series is brilliant because it welcomes drivers from various fields of motor racing and the champions podium last season was testament to that being shared by an ex F1 driver, karting champion David Terrien and Alzen an endurance racer. And the bottom line is that it's entertaining - for us and the fans."

Jean Alesi said "I'm very excited and looking forward to the second season. The last one showed how entertaining and competitive Speedcar Series is. I'm expecting the new season to be a successful one and as always I will do my best for the Series, especially looking forward to beating Johnny Herbert and winning the championship."
