European clay circuit

Do they use Hawkeye on the red clay or any clay tournaments? Also,are their any lighted red clay night matches?

Clay makes markings for umpires to check if a player wants a mark to be looked at, so hawkeye is not needed.

Rome has night matches.

When I was at ATP Umag last year there were red clay night matches.
There's no point using hawkeye on clay as you can check the track of ball.

Hawk-Eye was live on site at the 2007 French Open at Roland Garros. Although not used officially in the only Grand Slam event to be played on clay, the Hawkeye team made a positive contribution in Paris through their insightful statistics, working for a number of broadcasters including ESPN.
