The first race of the 2004 Superfund Euro F3000 season will now take place at Brno in the Czech Republic, following problems with the original venue at Enna-Pergusa.

The opening round continues to take place on 2 May, a day after the Czech Republic joins the EU.

Although exact details of the 'problems' that prevented the Sicilian circuit at Enna-Pergusa from taking its scheduled slot on the calendar have not been revealed, series organisers claimed that there had been a breakdown in negotiations between the track and the FIA, which sanctions the Euro 3000 Championship.

Brno was opened in 1986 and has proven to be a popular venue for both two-and four-wheeled motorsport. A regular fixture on the MotoGP calendar, the circuit will also play host to the DTM touring car series in 2004, and has been used as a test track for Formula One teams.

The remainder of the Euro 3000 calendar continues as before, with the other nine races unchanged.
