Grand American Road Racing announced today that it has finalised the 2004 schedule of events for the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series and Grand-Am Cup Series. Grand American added one Rolex Series race, bringing the total to 12, and two Grand-Am Cup races for a total of 10.

Both series will return to Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant in 2004, with next season's date being moved from the fall to the May 21-23 spring weekend. The Rolex Series will run in a six-hour enduro, the first of two on tap for the series next season, while the Grand-Am Cup Series will be featured in a 250-mile race.

Also added to the 2004 schedule is a stand-alone event for the Grand-Am Cup Series at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Round two of the series will be held at the South Florida track, March 26-27. It will be the first of two races for Grand-Am Cup at the Speedway, as the series will return in the fall for a combined weekend with the Rolex Series, September 10-12.

"We are happy to announce that we have finalised our 2004 agreement with Mont-Tremblant," said Grand American president Roger Edmondson. "This track and its beautiful surroundings are very popular with our teams and growing Canadian fan base. Everyone should have a great time next year when we return in the springtime.

"We are also pleased to have brought the Grand-Am Cup schedule up to 10 events," he added. "Grand-Am Cup provided some very exciting road racing this season and I'm sure race fans in South Florida and in Quebec will be happy to see the series return."

The 2004 schedule will kick off for both series during the 42nd anniversary of the Rolex 24 At Daytona weekend, January 29 - February 1.
