Superleague Formula will feature 12 rounds next year as part of a heavily-expanded schedule.

The 2010 calendar features two rounds in Britain, the season-opener at Silverstone, and a mid-season round on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit.

Belgium will also host two rounds, at Spa-Francorchamps and Zolder, while the series will also venture outside Europe for the first time, with a round at Turkey's Istanbul track.

Superleague CEO Alex Andreu said: "Next year's calendar marks an exciting development in Superleague Formula's history.

Superleague Formula has moved to clarify that its 2010 schedule is not yet set in stone.

...a subsequent statement from the championship said that information regarding a 12-round schedule "does not accurately represent next season's schedule."

Superleague confirmed that a full calendar will be announced at a later date.

Superleague schedule grows for 2010
By Matt Beer, Wednesday 13th January 2010

Superleague Formula has unveiled a calendar of 12 events for 2010 - making its third season double the length of last year's championship.

The football-themed series opens with its maiden appearance at Silverstone in April, nearly three months earlier in the year than its 2009 opener was held.

It retains all its '09 venues bar the troubled Donington Park, but still visits the UK twice with a date at Brands Hatch joining Silverstone on the schedule.

2010 Superleague Formula calendar:
Code: Select all
Date          Circuit       Country
Apr 3/4       Silverstone   UK
May 15/16     Assen         Holland
May 22/23     Magny-Cours   France
Jun 19/20     Jarama        Spain
Jun 26/27     Nurburgring   Germany
Jul 3/4       Oschersleben  Germany
Jul 17/18     Zolder        Belgium
Jul 31/Aug 1  Brands Hatch  UK
Sep 18/19     Estoril       Portugal
Oct 2/3       Monza         Italy
Nov 13/14     Jerez         Spain
TBC           TBC           TBC

Yes, see http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/80856 for details,

the team for which the winner will test drive hasn't been announced so i don't know if S'League will be able to honour their promise, we will have to wait and see..

Ps nice to hear from you again.

A warning of what can happen when aggressive blocks a la Schumacher go wrong. This happened today at the Superleague race at Brands.

Driver Chris van der Drift (great name for a driver) has multiple injuries.

Why does the comment about defending the right and saying they can pass on the left sound familiar? >?:PLO

Webber joins van der Drift fundraiser
Wednesday 1st September 2010

Red Bull Formula 1 driver Mark Webber will take part in the karting event to raise funds for the injured Chris van der Drift next week.

Van der Drift suffered two broken fingers, a double break to his right ankle, and a dislocated and cracked shoulder in a horrifying Superleague Formula crash at Brands Hatch last month.

To help raise funds to cover the cost of van der Drift's treatment, fellow racers are coming together for a charity kart race at Daytona Karting in Milton Keynes on 7 September.
