No Bucharest - Hungaroring Instead
After all the problems with the Bucharest FIA GT fixture - originally at the start of the season, then pencilled in for October - the event has now been scrapped, to be replaced by a race at the Hungaroring on October 1.

The SRO statement reads as follows:
SRO regrets to announce that the event promoters of the Bucharest round of the FIA GT Championship have informed them that they have been forced to cancel the scheduled event for the 2006 season. This has occurred totally independently of FIA GT promoters SRO, which had followed all the recognised procedures. The contract between SRO and the Bucharest promoters had been signed, and a deposit both agreed and received. The date was properly registered by the Romanian Motorsport Federation with the FIA, and recently modified by them further to the rescheduling of an important diplomatic conference. SRO has made arrangements for a replacement event, which will take place at the Hungaroring, in Budapest, on October 1st.
