The increasingly-popular FIA GT Championship will be contested over ten rounds next season, although several venues were still to be confirmed when the World Motor Sport Council revealed the official calendar.

The series will return to the site of this season's final round - Monza - to open next year, but keeps many of the established venues on the schedule. Gaps exist at rounds two, six and ten, however, meaning that the stage for the finale has yet to be set.

Old favourites Magny-Cours, Brno, Donington and Oschersleben all remain fixtures, as does Spa-Francorchamps, which is expected to again stage its annual 24 Hours race for the tin-top sportscars. There is, as yet, no place for Enna-Pergusa, which is expected to lose its slot to the already confirmed Imola round. Barcelona, Anderstorp and Estoril are the other three 2003 venues missing from the schedule, but each could occupy one of the still vacant dates.

The Monza round remains subject to ASN confirmation.

The full provisional schedule is as follows:

March 28 Monza*
April 11 TBA
May 2 Magny-Cours
May 16 Brno
May 30 Donington Park
June 27 TBA
August 1 Spa-Francorchamps
September 5 Imola
September 19 Oschersleben
October 10 TBA

[* denotes event subject to ASN confirmation]
