SRO has been named as the promoter for the new FIA GT1 World Championship following the latest meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Paris on Wednesday.
A statement from the FIA read:
"As part of this agreement [from 2010], the FIA GT Championship (GT1 and GT2) and the GT3 European Championship, will be split into three distinct and easily identifiable FIA GT Championships.
"The FIA GT1 World Championship will be for independent teams and professional drivers, the FIA GT2 European Championship for independent teams and pro-am driver crews, and the FIA GT3 European Championship for independent teams and non-professional drivers."
The Bucharest event, scheduled for 8-9 August 2009, meanwhile has been replaced with an event in Budapest on 29-30 August 2009.
