The Suzuka 8 Hours, which is resaved for teams in Formula EWC, is scheduled to take place in Japan on Sunday 27 July and the 8 Hours of Oschersleben in Germany on 16 August.
Plans to stage a new 6 Hour event on the Navarra Circuit in Northern Spain, near Pamplona, are close to being finalised. This race could take place in early June. The date will be chosen to fit in with the calendars of the other World Championships and the Spanish Championship.
