Final (Provisional) British GT Calendar
It’s still listed as provisional, but this looks like the final version of the 2006 Avon Tyres British GT Championship calendar.

15 &17 April – Oulton Park Island Circuit (with F3)
20 / 21 May – Donington Park National (with F3 – 2 hour GT race)
3 / 4 / 5 June – Pau (GT3 / GTC with F3)
24 / 25 June – Mondello Park (with F3)
15 /16 July – Snetterton (with F3)
12 /13 August – Rockingham - (Avon Festival – no F3)
26 / 27 August – Brands Hatch (with F3 - A1GP)
23 / 24 September – Silverstone International (with F3 – 2 hour GT race)
13 / 14 / 15 October – Magny-Cours (GT2 Only – with FFSA GT)
Change that - Magny-Cours is now October 20 / 21 / 22.

So the changes are:
No May 6-7 event at Silverstone, with the FIA GT Championship
Pau is a new date, effectively replacing the GT3 event at Croft
Rockingham is back on the calendar
As already known the A1GP event is now a week earlier than originally planned
Thruxton in late September disappears from the calendar.

“The change in the date for the Brands Hatch A1GP meeting made it necessary for us to make some changes to our original calendar,” said SRO Chairman Stephane Ratel. “It is unfortunate that we weren’t able to find a suitable alternative date to race at Croft. However, we will work with the circuit owners to find a date on the 2007 calendar for this popular event. The Avon Tyres British GT Championship will return to Rockingham for the first time since 2003.”
