Could some dedicated Sports Car fan list all the dates and info for the unified series please. I am trying to make plans to attend as many of these events across the world as my work allows.

Thank you in advance.

You should have done it that way, Lewis...

The only clashes are Portimao/Long Beach and Monza/Mosport then. That should help with the logistics of the 2023 JP "Time and Two Seats" tour.

Yes, Sebring's the double-header now.

Would be nice to get the 12 Hours back in the world series - it was the "Silverstone 1950" equivalent as the first ever race when the original World Sportscar Championship began in 1953.

Daytona and the Glen were also long-time World Championship events back in the day, of course.

Now that everyone (well, not me) has been so helpful planning your calendar, Jon, I feel you are duty bound to attend every race and bring back evidence of attending.
