2015 FIA WEC calendar confirmed

Like this year, 2015’s FIA World Endurance Championship is set to consist of eight rounds. However, there will be a couple of significant changes.

The first concerns the summer break. In 2014 there was a lengthy three-month gap in the schedule after Le Mans, but fortunately that won’t be repeated next season thanks to the inaugural 6 Hours of Nürburgring in August. This new event is due to use the circuit’s Grand Prix track, rather than the more challenging Nordschleife.

The other major revision sees the 6 Hours of São Paulo disappearing from the calendar. As a result, Bahrain once again becomes the finale venue.
