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 Nurburgring, as well as improvements in professionalism and car performance.

The 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship calendar is:

16 April

6 Hours of Silverstone

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 recognize 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.

-        Day 1: All cars start according to the actual Championship classification

-        Day 2: P1 drivers start in the reverse order of the actual rally classification after Day 1. Other drivers start in the order of the rally classification.

-        Day 3: P1 drivers start in the reverse order of the actual rally classification after Day 2. Other drivers start in the order of the rally classification.

P1 drivers re-starting in Rally 2 will start at the end of the P1 group.

The start order of the first rally of the Championship will be based on the Championship classification of the previous year.

A WRC Trophy has been created for drivers and co-drivers participating in pre-2017 specification WRC cars. The maximum number of qualifying rallies is seven and the driver and co-driver who have scored the highest total of points in six of the qualifying rallies will win the titles. If less than five competitors register, no titles will be awarded.
