[url]And the Motors TV Website[/url] Which explains why the link to the TV coverage disappeared on the TV news thread.

This says it'll be back for 2011

This is on the motors tv site in there news pages


The proposed FIA GT2 European Championship has been postponed, it has been announced.

Following the launch of the GT1 World Championship this year, series promoters SRO Motorsports Group had proposed a stand-alone GT2 series to be based in Europe alongside the existing FIA GT3 European Championship.

However, a lack of entries has seen SRO recommend that the series be shelved for 2010 and replaced by a ‘GT2 European Cup’ to be awarded to the best-placed GT2 car at this year’s Spa 24 Hours. SRO plans to revive the concept for 2011.

“After the successful launch in Paris last week of the FIA GT1 World Championship, which has a full grid of 12 teams and 24 cars, and the continuing strong support for the FIA GT3 European Championship, with 40 cars expected to be on the grid at Silverstone for the first race in May, SRO has proposed to the FIA to postpone the FIA GT2 European Championship for 2010” said Stephane Ratel, CEO and founder of SRO Motorsports Group.

“The thundering development of the GT3 category, with 13 models from 12 brands homologated to date and the likely arrival of three additional ones in 2012, offering cars more affordable with performances equal to those of the GT2 category, has forced SRO to redefine its plans for the GT2 category.

“A proposition has been made to FIA, which will be heard by the FIA World Motor Sport Council on Thursday 11 March, to postpone the introduction of the GT2 European Championship, to be relaunched once the future orientation of the GT2 class has been agreed with a minimum of four manufacturers, possibly around the introduction of Hybrid technologies in GT racing.

“In the meantime, SRO has proposed to the Royal Automobile Club of Belgium (RACB), promoters of the 24 Hours of Spa, to concentrate its GT2 effort on the blue ribbon event with a FIA GT2 European Cup to be awarded to the best placed GT2 car at the event. The similar performances of the GT2 and GT3 categories promise an epic competition between many different brands.

“SRO has a long and successful history of revitalising championships and we are working hard with everyone involved to re-launch GT2 as a full championship as soon as possible.”

Know one cared, no one entered.

It won't be back, why would anyone care about this when there is lms and gt open.

Rumour has it vln will take over the spa 24. That's a winning formula to me. Retal can shove himself up his own ass.
