The 2020 Superleague Lights season is the 2nd GPVWC Superleague Lights season; the current second tier of the Career Ladder. Lukas Schmidt enters the season as the reigning Drivers' Champion, whilst reigning 2019 Superleague Lights Teams' Champions Red Arrow Racing took the step up to the Superleague series.

With the similar promotion of Cosmo Seiki Japan and Holland Racing Team, second and third placed respectively in the 2019 Team's championship, TR Motorsport enters the 2020 season as the highest-placed team left from 2019.

With massive changes expected for 2021, the 2020 season is expected to proceed very much similar in nature and regulations to the inaugural season.

Teams and drivers

15 teams are expected to take part in the 2020 season. As in 2019, every car will be powered by a Martex 1600cc turbocharged V6 power unit and use GPVWC brand tyres.

Calendar changes

The Lights series' calendar reflected that of the rest of the Career Ladder. Though the Lights series had only run for one season, some of the changes as were keenly felt as they were across the League.

  • The Malaysian, Spanish and, controversially, Monaco rounds were removed from the calendar.
  • Hungarian, French and Russian rounds were introduced. A Dutch round was set to be introduced in 2020 but was replaced by the Hungarian event when issues with the Zandvoort circuit became apparent.
