The FIA GT1 World Championship will climax at Donington Park at the end of September in place of the original finale planned for the Buddh International Circuit in India.
The Indian event, scheduled for December, has been cancelled after series boss Stephane Ratel was unable to guarantee the 18-car field he was contracted to provide.
In order to maintain the championship at nine rounds, the world championship will now join up with the British GT/Formula 3 meeting at Donington on Sept. 29-30, just one week after the penultimate event at the Nurburgring.
The disappearance of the Buddh event is the latest in a wave of race cancellations to have dogged the championship. Events at San Luis in Argentina, the Korean International Circuit, Ordos and Beijing Goldenport in China and Zandvoort have also been lost.
Ratel's SRO Motorsort Group has already announced that it will not continue as the promoter of the FIA GT1 World Championship next year. He is, instead, planning to continue the format of two, one-hour sprint races in a new European-based series without an FIA title.
