Bahrain to host GP2 and GP3 season finale

NEWS STORY
30/07/2015

GP2 Series and GP3 Series organisers have confirmed that an extra round will be added to the current 2015 calendar.

The event will take place at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir on November 19-20-21 alongside the FIA Six Hours Of Bahrain. This event will be back-to-back with the final round of the season which will be held at Yas Marina Circuit.

“I am pleased to confirm that we have added Sakhir to our 2015 GP2 and GP3 calendar in November," said GP2 and GP3 Series CEO Bruno Michel. "Ever since the announcement of the cancellation of the German event, we have been working hard to try and add a round for both Series.

“It was important that we could keep the costs down for the teams, but also to find a venue that was an added value for the drivers. Bahrain International Circuit was the best option: not only is it a Formula One track, but it makes perfect sense to have it back-to-back with the final round of the season in Abu Dhabi.”

While Bahrain hosted the opening round of the GP2 season, Stoffel Vandoorne winning the feature race and Rio Haryanto winning the sprint race, it will be GP3's first visit.

"Not only do we have to put up with this horrible race (and track) being a part of the F1 calendar but now GP2 and GP3 have to suffer too."
