Series organizers released Tuesday a revised schedule for the 2014 European Le Mans Series.

While still featuring the same five rounds, previously announced in September, there have been date changes to two of the events.

Both Round 2 at Imola and Round 5 at Estoril have been moved back by one week, with the races now set to take place on May 17-18 and Oct. 18-19, respectively.

Clarifications were also made to the driver categorizations, with lineups in GTE and GTC next year requiring at least one Bronze and one Silver driver each, or two Bronze drivers.

No changes have been made to the driver rating requirements in the other classes.

At least one Silver or Bronze driver must be used in each LMP2 lineup, while only one Gold or Platinum driver are allowed to be a part of each lineup in LMPC.

“With the confirmation of the dates for Imola and Estoril the 2014 calendar is now set,” said LMEM CEO Gerard Neveu. “Finally the driver line ups in each category have been clearly defined and this will make things more transparent next season.

“The 2014 European Le Mans Series is building on the solid foundations laid in ACO’s first year in charge and we are confident that, with these changes, there will be further growth next season.”

2014 European Le Mans Series Schedule (Provisional):

April 18-19 – Silverstone
May 17-18- Imola
July 19-20 – Red Bull Ring
September 13-14 – Paul Ricard
October 18-19- Estoril
