New destinations for GP2 and GP3 in 2014

GP2 and GP3, the first and second tier feeder series’ for Formula 1, are following the main event to new destinations in 2014.

The presence of these exciting and super-competitive series’ are a real boost for the race programs at the European and Middle-Eastern F1 weekends, improving the experience for spectators and going some way to justifying ever-increasing ticket prices.

Both GP2 and GP3 will complement the race programs at the two new European rounds of the F1 season in Austria and Russia in 2014, but in the case of GP2, this comes at the expense of the races previously held at Sepang in Malaysia and Marina Bay in Singapore.

Later this year, Abu Dhabi will hold the final rounds of all three championships  – F1, GP2 and GP3 –  on 21-23 November . Imagine if all three championships were still open going into the Abu Dhabi weekend? A tantalizing prospect for motorsport fans lucky enough to be at Yas Marina in 2014!
