2011 Super GT schedule

Jon Sibal posted something really interesting on his blog the other day and I wanted to find out more about it.  In looking for more information on what he posted I found out that the 2011 Super GT schedule has been posted already.  It's not a finalized schedule just yet but it gives us a pretty good look at how the race season next year is shaping up.

Thankfully this coming year wont see as many repeat tracks unlike this year's season.  Also hopefully no acts of god will hamper the season.  In any case here is the as scheduled 2011 Super GT race season --

2011 calendar (in process for FIA authorization)
Round 1 4/2 - 3 Okayama International Circuit
Round 2 4/30 - 5/1 Fuji Speedway
Round 3 6/18 - 19 Sepang International Circuit
Round 4 7/30 - 31 Sportsland SUGO
Round 5 8/20 - 21 Suzuka Circuit
Round 6 9/10 - 11 Fuji Speedway
Round 7 10/1 - 2 Autopolis
Round 8 10/15 - 16 Twin Ring Motegi
Special event 11/12 - 13 Fuji Speedway
It's looking like they are trying to get the hottest race of the series in earlier in the year which I'm sure many will be happy about. It's also interesting to see April is host to two races and the largest break will be in middle of the summer from the middle of June until the end of July.  Of course the time off between the end of April and the middle of June is pretty damn long as well.  Gives the teams lots of time for Sepang I guess.

Back next year will be an event at the Autopolis which was left off this year's race schedule.  You can take a quick look at what that might look like thanks to the race in 2009.
