The 2015 Auto GP season has been suspended by the organisers, citing low entry numbers as the reason why they will not be contesting the Paul Ricard round of the championship this weekend. This comes after just eight cars contested the Silverstone round of the championship last month.
“The organization wants to underline that the 2015 edition must not be considered over,” said Auto GP Organisation in a statement. “Following to an accurate revision of its strategy, Auto GP is aiming to be back on-track soon, provided that the level is appropriate to its heritage.
“As soon as there will be an adequate number of participants, the championship will be restarted with the necessary modifications to the original calendar.”
The championship attempted to merge with Formula Acceleration 1 for the 2015 season in a bid to boost grid numbers, however the organisers announced before the start of the season that both parted ways.
