This being a Peroni event, I wouldn't get my hopes up too high for a good grid, especially on the GT front, where they really have problems assembling a credible grid for their regular season.

This is all true, the last real proper international race there was the FIA GT in 2003. They also raced there in 2002.

The Superstars series races there in 2012, right when the track was rebuilt after having been un-rated for FIA races at the end of 2004 - here's probably the best article on the Autodromo di Pergusa to be found online, at least in English, including the infamous frog story. In 2009, Pergusa was approved again and the FIA GT3 should have it's season finale there (even the GT2 EM, which never came and was a one-off race with the Spa 24h), but that never happened. I think inbetween these years only trackdays were the only actual proper car events to be allowed there.
GTSprint was also there in 2012, and ETCC raced there from 12-15 iirc. In that GTSprint video it's quite amusing to watch the cars in an amateur way.

When watching those old and new videos you'll see they made the first chicane a little slower, but other than that, it's pretty much the same as it has been in the 80s - I love these simple nature race tracks. Pergusa is one of my all-time favorites. Sadly, the infrastructure is very basic, and very old. This is paired with the fact that the Lago di Pergusa (only natural lake on sicily, by the way) is a natural reserve since 1991 and home to lots and lots of rare birds in the beginning and end of summer, when the go north and south over the whole of Europe.

Pergusa has featured in the SimBin titles GTR, GTR2 aswell as Slightly Mad Studio's Need for Speed Shift 2 (which is just the old SimBin crew under a new name), and through mods in various other racing sims like the Race07 series, rFactor or Assetto Corsa.

While I find it interesting and kinda funny that the race track apparently is run by a stereotypical italian very laid-back organization team, the race track at least has some history for more than half a century now and has had some international race series on it - compared to that, the other race track on sicily (an island that hasn't got a lot of industry and therefor jobs due to it's natural conditions) is pretty much dead and you wonder why or how it even exists.

Anyway, I just like the track and have sympathy for it - I just want the event to be good.

In typical Gruppo Peroni fashion, this has appeared on the book of faces:

"NUOVA DATA 24/25 MARZO 2018"

I don't speak Italian but at a guess 'new date 24/25 March 2018'.

Hearing about this race has inspired me to bang out some laps on Enna in GTR2.

I think race will not held anymore. Peroni organization is usual to make such a sort of proclaim but surely there is no space for a race like this in Italy...

Especially not on sicily, an island that somehow might have three racetracks but not a very strong economy. Going there sadly isn't really feasible for a lot of european teams, and winning the race isn't really gonna write you in the history books, is it?

Sadly, these times are long gone - except if we're talking about the rally, of course.
