EVENT DESCRIPTION



Racing at Autodrom Most allows Discovery Sports Events to renew its partnership with a venue that hosted the 2017 FIA European Touring Car Cup title decider and bring the WTCR to a country with a strong motorsport following for the first time.


Measuring 4.212 kilometres in length, Autodrom Most is approximately 70 kilometres north of the Czech capital Prague and within easy reach of German cities Dresden and Leipzig. As well as action from the WTCR, the The Most World Weekend includes the deciding round of the 2021 FIM Endurance World Championship for motorbikes from Discovery Sports Events when leading riders will contest the 6 Hours of Most on Saturday October 9.



The track layout offers an exciting blend of medium- and high-speed sweeps and turns with a long start/finish straight leading to an ultra-tight chicane.







THE BIG NUMBER: 222

 

Petr Fulín, who usually carries #22, will use #222 for his WTCR return at Autodrom Most.



The Czech hero has made the change because all-season racer Frédéric Vervisch runs #22 on his Comtoyou Team Audi Sport Audi RS 3 LMS.



The previous highest number used in WTCR was #111, which was carried by Andy Priaulx’s Lynk & Co 03 TCR during the 2019 season.






HOW IT WORKS AT WTCR RACE OF CZECH REPUBLIC



Qualifying: WTCR Race of Czech Republic begins with two free practice sessions of 45 minutes and 30 minutes duration, followed by a single qualifying session. This is split into three stages (Q1, Q2 and Q3) and includes two elimination periods (Q1 and Q2).



Q1 lasts 20 minutes with the fastest 12 progressing to Q2 where they get 10 minutes to battle for the five spots on offer in Q3. The quintet to progress to Q3 get one lap, one at a time to chase the pole position. Points are handed to the fastest five in Q1 and Q3 on a scale of 5-4-3-2-1.



Grids: Race 1 uses a partially-reversed grid with the fastest 10 in Q2 lining up in reverse order, meaning the driver who finishes Q2 in P10 starts Race 1 from pole position, P9 in second and so on. The drivers who were P11 and P12 in Q2 go next followed by the drivers eliminated after Q1. The Race 2 grid uses the combined qualifying order after Q3.






Points:



*The fastest five drivers in Qualifying Q1 and Q3 score points as follows: 5-4-3-2-1.


*The top 15 classified finishers score in each race as follows: 25-20-16-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1


*The same scoring system apples to the WTCR − FIA World Touring Car Cup for Teams and the FIA WTCR Junior Driver Title, although WTCR Junior points are not awarded following Q3


*WTCR Trophy drivers score as follows: 10-8-5-3-1, 1 point for the fastest qualifying lap, 1 point for the fastest lap in each race






TYRE TALK WITH SEBASTIAN TRINKS, GOODYEAR EVENT LEADER WTCR



“I still know the circuit from when I raced there myself but that was a lot of years ago. It’s a technical layout with a lot of corners and no time for the tyre to relax, they are always loaded either right or left. There’s one big braking zone going into Turn 1 after the long straight and we will also see some slipstreaming action.


In general, there is no room for mistakes for the drivers because the gravel traps are very near to the side of the track so if you go off track you can easily end up in the gravel. The bikes from the EWC will also have an influence because they are running on different tyre compounds from different brands.


It means the grip level on the Sunday for the WTCR races will be different than for the qualifying sessions on Friday after the six-hour bike race and the drivers need to keep that in mind and the grip level might change. However, it’s difficult to tell at the moment if it will be a positive or negative change.


The colder temperatures won’t be a concern because with a lot of corners the tyres are quite quickly up to temperature compared to circuits where you have a lot of straights. And the teams already have a lot of experience of our tyres, they know how to deal with the different situations and different circumstances.



We’ve only had a few sessions in the wet, mainly last year, but it’s the same wet tyre as last year and teams have a bit of experience. As usual we will do a full track walk on arrival to check carefully all the kerbs and track surface.”


All drivers use the single specification Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport tyre. For WTCR Race of Czech Republic, each driver has 12 dry-weather slick tyres allocated and can carry over 10 from previous events. In addition, 16 wet-weather tyres are available.
