Superleague announces Provisional Calendar for 2009

France shall host the opening of the championship this coming spring in Magny Cours and Jarama joins the calendar this second season with the last race of the series in October.

The French circuit Magny Cours shall host the inaugural meeting of the second season of Superleague Formula. After the disappearance of F1 from the French circuit last year, the takeover of Superleague Formula shall be converted into one of the most attractive meetings expected by motorsport fans of the country.

Donington was the first circuit to witness the birth of the inaugural championship last season and will host the third round this second season on 1st August. From barely 100 miles away from Anfield stadium, supporters of Liverpool FC will also be able to cheer their club onto the circuit and witness in person the heroic maneuvers of their driver Adrián Vallés, one of the best pilots of the last season who will no doubt bring a new victory to the team.

Estoril shall receive Superleague Formula international championship scheduled for the beginning of September for the second time. 25.000 fans and numerous celebrities from the country supported FC Porto at the Portuguese circuit in the last season who loved and enjoyed the sound of the 18 V12 de 750hp, and will again, without a doubt, reveal their support and enthusiasm to the Club. Although the single-seater did not get lucky on this occasion, the response of the local public at the championship was extraordinary positive at the circuit and marked an inflexion in the season.

Superleague Formula would like to bring the championship to all the supporters of the participating football clubs, whereas in the previous season AS Roma were the fortunate ones who saw their car run at Vallelunga, this year rossoneri del Milan AC, one of the founder clubs of the championship will be the chosen one who will support their team at the circuit of Monza next October.

For this same purpose, this year the closing of the championship will move from Jerez to Madrid, where this time, supporters of Atletico de Madrid will have their opportunity to urge on the car of their team onto the circuit of Jarama in Madrid at the end of October.
