Auto GP to line-up at Silverstone

A late update made the 2013 Auto GP schedule final today with a venue change.

The switch was aimed at preventing the team from facing an expensive trip to Russia.

In addition to the new location, the series is poised to announce two test days set for May the 3rd at Budapest, and August 29 at Donington Park.

Enzo Coloni: “With the addition of Silverstone, we’ll be visiting four racetracks currently on the Formula 1 schedule. We’re doubling-up our presence in the UK and we also made a step towards the teams. They always provided great support for our project. With this move, they will be able to save on the travel expenses and provide their drivers with a very competitive and high-quality environment with a much lower budget compared to GP2″.
