Teams will receive their first car on October 18th and 19th and a shakedown will take place on November 18th at Circuit Paul Ricard. All cars will then be shipped from Europe to Abu Dhabi mid-December and will arrive one month later in the Middle East.
GP2 Asia Series CEO Bruno Michel said: “It is true that this season’s calendar is particularly short due to the fact that we have a new car to deliver to our teams. It will be the first time that we use the same car for both GP2 Asia and GP2 Series, and it will definitely be an exciting new season: not only will we have a new car, new tires, new drivers, but also two new teams with Carlin and Team Air Asia joining us. Since the beginning of the GP2 Asia Series, we have seen great races and I am confident that this coming season will provide us with the same quality show. It will be exciting for everyone to see how quickly teams and drivers will adapt to the new car and tires!"
