FIA announces World Motor Sport Council decisions

24.06.2016: The FIA held its second World Motor Sport Council meeting of 2016 today in Turin concluding

The FIA held its second World Motor Sport Council meeting of 2016 today in Turin concluding the fourth FIA Sport Conference.



During the meeting, the following decisions were taken:




FIA World Rally Championship



To create a fairer attribution of points when part of an event’s itinerary is cancelled, a minimum of 75% of the special stage distance must be run in order to allocate full points from 2017.


If between 50% and 75% of the itinerary is run, half points will be awarded, and between 25% and 50%, one third of the points. If less than 25% of the special stage distance is run, no points will be awarded.


Only Manufacturer teams will be eligible to enter World Rally Cars under the 2017 regulations.


To provide the opportunity for more drivers to be nominated, from 2017 a Manufacturer will not be required to nominate the first driver in its team.


Nominations will however still be required by the closing date of entries for each event.





FIA World Endurance Championship


The following dates for the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans have been approved for 17 and 18 June 2017 – the test day will be on 4 June 2017.


The remaining FIA World Endurance Championship calendar will be approved at a later date.



To increase the level of the LMP1 Privateer class, a number of adjustments to the Technical Regulations have been approved:


- Increase of chord and width of rear wing

- Increase of width of front part of the bodywork

- Lower minimum weight 830kg

- Only one fuel flow meter

- No required torquemeter

- No engine quantity limitation

- No restriction in engine capacity




FIA Formula E Championship


The World Motor Sport Council made a number of adjustments to the Sporting Regulations for the 2016-2017 season. These include:


- Introduction of licence points, similar to that used in Formula One

- Awarding only one point for the fastest lap in a race instead of two

- Introduction of a “Power Ramp Down” when the consumption limit is exceeded




FIA Formula 3 European Championship


Further aerodynamic development restrictions were added to the Technical Regulations of the 2017 FIA Formula 3 European Championship in order to re-establish the performance equity between large, small, experienced and new teams – as well as reducing the management cost and development budgets.


The World Motor Sport Council voted to extend the homologation period of the F3 engine by two years in order to align it with the chassis homologation period.


This will result in a cost reduction as the engines will be used without further development for two more years, while the alignment of the chassis and engine homologation period assures further cost savings.


In addition, a new proposed safety kit upgrade was approved, adding a new front impact structure, additional Zylon panels and new wheel tethers.



FIA Formula 4


Regarding the potential FIA F4 World Final, the FIA received two proposals following a call for expressions of interest.


These proposals are being reviewed and the Single-Seater Commission will submit its proposal to the World Motor Sport Council in September.



FIA European Drag Racing Championship


The final round of the 2016 FIA European Drag Racing Championship, scheduled for Malta on 2 October 2016, has been cancelled as the facility will not be completed in time for the event.



FIA Safety Commission



Small changes were added to the FIA Superlicence points system.


For the FIA Championships where a penalty points system is in place, any driver having competed in the entire championship without being given any penalty point will be granted a ‘Safety Bonus’ – an additional two points on top of their achieved points.



Both the FIA Formula E Championship and the International V8 Supercars Championship have been added to the Superlicence points system. These will be updated in Appendix L of the International Sporting Code on FIA.com.



FIA Historic Commission



In order to smooth the processing of Historic Technical Passports (HTPs), the World Motor Sport Council has approved a plan to simplify the system.


As part of this simplification, ASNs will be charged a single fee per HTP regardless of the type of car commencing on 1 January 2017.


In addition, the change involves all HTP applications being invoiced, as opposed to only those that result in an HTP being issued.


The fee has been reached by taking the average fee under the current system and reducing it by ten per cent to help encourage further growth in participation in Historic motor sport.


These changes are subject to the approval of the FIA General Assembly in December.




FIA Drifting Working Group


The World Motor Sport Council approved the FIA Drifting Working Group to begin work on creating the first FIA-sanctioned international drifting event.
