FIA World Endurance Championship




The Technical Regulations originally scheduled to be introduced for the LMP1-Hybrid class in 2018, have now been postponed until 2020. As a result, the 2017 Technical Regulations will be enforced for the 2018 and 2019 seasons.


The World Motor Sport Council approved the proposal to upgrade the status of the GTE class. This class has previously been run as a World Cup within the WEC. From 2017, the new title will be the FIA World Endurance Championship for GTE Drivers and Manufacturers.



This has been decided due to the increase of GTE manufacturer involvement in the Championship, as well as improvements in professionalism and car performance.



The 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship calendar is:




16 April    6 Hours of Silverstone    Great Britain
6 May    WEC 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps    Belgium
17/18 June    Le Mans 24 Hours    France

5 November    6 Hours of Shanghai    China
18 November    6 Hours of Bahrain    Bahrain





FIA World Touring Car Championship



The points allocated to the Main Race of FIA World Touring Car Championship events will be increased for 2017 to recognise the greater value of this race in comparison to the Opening Race. Points will now be scored as follow:


-        1st:  30 points
-        2nd:  23
-        3rd:  19
-        4th:  16
-        5th:  13
-        6th:  10
-        7th:  7
-        8th:  4
-        9th:  2
-        10th:  1



Points allocated for Opening Races remain unchanged.


From the 2017 season, TCN-2 cars will be incorporated into WTCC events, under the “WTCC 2” class; for which drivers’ and teams’ titles will be awarded. This should result in a significant expansion of the grid for FIA World Touring Car Championship events.
At the request of the WTCC Promoter, the World Motor Sport Council approved further investigation into the possibility of implementing a Joker Lap on its temporary circuits. This process currently sits with the FIA’s Safety and Circuit Commissions.
