2012 Top Series (Brazilian Endurance Championship)

This new series is on the way!! With several news, and another new order. Let's begin:

- The 2010-11 GT Brasil seasons were a joint promotion between SRO Latin America and Auto+ Entretenimento. Both parts split their ways, and this is the breakdown-ish series promoted by Auto+;
- Almost all cars out of the GT Championship will race here;
- This season will feature four classes of racing:
>Top 1-GT (for FIA GT2 and GT3 cars)
>Top 1-Proto (for national prototypes with naturally aspirated engines over 2000cc or supercharged engines under 2000cc)
>Top 2-GT (for FIA GT4 cars)
>Top 2-Proto (for national prototypes with naturally aspirated engines under 2000cc);
- The IndyCar support race is a deal signed by Auto+ and will be the first round of this championship;
- The championship will be disputed on one 2-hour race and five 3-hour (or 500km) races, and will be aired on television on a 1-hour tape-delayed highlight reel format.

Here is the schedule:

April 28 - São Paulo-Anhembi (supporting the IndyCar Series)
June 17 - Curitiba
July 22 - Interlagos
August 12 - Velopark
September 30 - Londrina
November 4 - Tarumã (TBC)

Round 1 is also on the way!! The official entry list has not been released yet, but the schedule was released together with the rest of the IndyCar one. This will be the only 2-hour race in this season, this Saturday at 15:30 LT (18:30 GMT).

This series arose from the Mil Milhas race? If I remember well that race had (or does the endurance race still exist?) GT's but also local built prototypes.

Brazilian motorsport is very complicated. They have state federations, like football, and each has separate championships. Plus, any promoter can get permission from the national or a state fereation to run a championship. That's why there are so many championships.

The last years, some promoters had been trying to create a proper sports car endurance championship. Many of them have been cancelled, delayed, postponed, etc. This one seems a promising attempt. Of course, the question is if it will attract top drivers. There are too many so called Brazilian top championships, so it's hard to tell.
