The 2016 season
The championship offers drivers the opportunity to demonstrate their skills on an international level. The 10 events in 2016 will be held in seven different European countries, with appearances in France, Hungary, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. The venues chosen each year prepare the drivers as much as possible for the pinnacle of motorsport, and for this reason nine former or current Formula 1 GP or test circuits have made it onto the calendar this season: Paul Ricard (FRA), Hungaroring (HUN), Pau (FRA), Red Bull Ring (AUT), Zandvoort (NLD), Spa-Francorchamps (BEL), Imola (ITA), the Nürburgring (DEU) and Hockenheim (DEU). Furthermore, besides Pau, the series will visit a second tradition-steeped street circuit: Nuremberg’s Norisring (DEU).
