van der Garde the target at Spa.

“I'm fairly pleased with the weekend - we leave Monza with some solid points and that's important - but it could have been better," the Russian admitted, "Qualifying is obviously very important in the World Series and I think our qualifying performance hurt us at the weekend. Improvements in qualifying will be my main aim for Spa, but I think that's more than possible.”

For others, the second meeting of the season will be seen as more of a revenge match. Off the pace or out of luck at the first weekend, drivers such as Marco Bonanomi, Fabio Carbone, Guillaume Moreau and Salvador Duran will be keen to bounce back with as many points as possible.

The race format will return to the series' usual set-up at Spa, with a pit-stop race joining the usual sprint, and, for the first time, the proposed Superpole session will be added to qualifying, giving the top six runners from each group a chance to improve on their times before the top eight secure places in the reversed portion of the grid.
