In view of the F1 calendar that will bring the 2023 Belgian GP to Spa-Francorchamps one week before the original date of the 24 Hours of Spa, SRO Motorsports Group has been forced to revise its 2023 calendar announced at Spa last July. 


The 2023 Spa 24 Hours has therefore been brought forward by four weeks to be held from 29 June to 2 July. The 24 Hours of Nürburgring will be held from 18 to 21 May, the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 10 and 11 June, and the 24 Hours of Spa from 26 June to 2 July. Changing the date of the 24 Hours of Spa meant that part of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe had to be rearranged. 


This is not the first time that the Spa double clock will be held at the beginning of July: 1998 (4/5 July), 1999 (3/4 July).


The opening of the championship in Monza is postponed by one week (22/23 April). The Sprint at Brands Hatch, scheduled for 29 and 30 April, is postponed to mid-May (13/14). Magny-Cours is no longer on the GT3 (Sprint) calendar. 


No change for the Endurance at Paul Ricard (3/4 June). Misano keeps its Sprint meeting which takes place on July 15 and 16 (instead of 1/2). 


The novelty comes from the return of the Nürburgring in Endurance on July 29 and 30. Hockenheim will host the championship on September 2 and 3 but it will be Sprint and not Endurance as this year. Valencia will host the Sprint on 16 and 17 September, followed by the Endurance final in Barcelona from 30 September to 1 October. The 2023 championship will close in Zandvoort (Sprint) on 14 and 15 October. 


The GT4 European Series will be present at Monza, Paul Ricard, Spa-Francorchamps, Nürburgring, Hockenheim and Barcelona. 


The FFSA GT calendar is also changing. No change with the season opening at Nogaro for the traditional Easter Cup (8/9 April). Magny-Cours changes its date from 13/14 May to 6/7 May. The Dijon meeting is also brought forward by one week (17/18 June), as is the Val de Vienne (8/9 July). Lédenon keeps its initial date of 9/10 September and the Paul Ricard final is brought forward by one week (7/8 October).
