Calendar[edit]

The provisional calendar for the 2017 season was announced on 2 December 2016.[9] On 28 December 2016 was confirmed that Circuit Paul Ricard will host the seventh venue for the season.[10]

A revision of the calendar reduced the number of rounds to five and amended the clashes between the series and the Eurocup series.[11] At Spa NEC drivers joined Eurocup drivers on the grid, but the Eurocup drivers were ineligible to score points, and despite that on track races 1 & 3 were won by Sacha Fenestraz and race 2 by Gabriel Aubry they didn't receive NEC trophies.[12]
