  • Keep cars under yellow flag conditions until they reach the control line after the safety car returns to the pits
  • Allow unrestricted CFD simulations to be carried out for the development of cars in accordance with the 2021 regulations

The Council approved the following amendments to the 2019 Technical Regulations:

  • Adjustments to Article 3 in order to provide more clarity in some areas, primarily related to the front wing
  • An adjustment to Article 4, with a weight limit increase from 740kg to 743kg

Competitors in the newly-created FIA WRC 2 Pro Championship are permitted to enter two R5 cars per team and must participate in a minimum of seven rounds with one car – including one event outside Europe. For the Drivers’ and Co-drivers’ Championships, the eight best scores will count towards the titles, while the highest placed car(s) in each team will score points in the FIA WRC 2 Pro Championship for Manufacturers. Competitors will have P2P status, be permitted one day of testing per event per driver, and will start in Championship order after the P1 drivers on the first day of competition. On days two and three, crews will start after the P1 group, in classification order.

The FIA WRC 2 Championship, now solely for drivers and co-drivers, will have no minimum number of events, although the first six scores from seven entered rounds will count towards the titles. Competitors will be permitted one day of pre-event testing and will start in Championship order after the P2P group, and on days two and three after the P2P group in classification order. No WRC 2 registration fee will be requested from competitors who hold a licence from the ASN of the organising country for the first event in which they participate.

An additional 10 minutes will be added to the current 30-minute midday service to give organisers the opportunity to implement promotional activities with any of the drivers.

For the purposes of cost saving, Rally Argentina and Rally Chile, and Rally Portugal and Rally Italy will be paired to enable the manufacturer teams to participate with the same chassis, engines and spare parts.

Success ballast will be imposed for LMGTE Am cars entered in the championship. It will be in effect at all events, except for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The ballast calculation system uses the results of previous races (if any have been held) and championship positions, provided that all cars start any given season with a ballast of 0kg.

The scale of points awarded will be updated for the 2019-2020 season to account for the introduction of 4-hour events.

Technical regulations for the top-level endurance category which will be implemented from the 2020-2021 season were approved. These are based on the innovative concept of a ‘performance window’, aimed at creating close competition between differentiated hypercar prototype designs. The regulations include:

  • Aerodynamics capped by regulations to control cost and ensure that performance does not compromise bodywork design
  • Moveable aerodynamic devices front and rear
  • Maximum 520kW combustion engine encouraging diversity 
  • Front-wheel energy recovery and release system up to 200kW

Cost control measures include a five-year homologation period, and limitations on parts per season, testing, tyres and personnel.

The complete regulations are available on fia.com

With effect from 1 January 2019, the starting up, running in, warming up or testing of kart engines in the paddock and the reserved areas is strictly prohibited. Offenders will be fined at least €250 and may be disqualified in cases of repeated breach.

The free test sessions on Wednesday and Thursday at FIA Karting competitions will be discontinued from 1 January 2020.

The 2019 FIA GT Nations Cup was approved to take place at the Autodromo Vallelunga in Italy from 1-3 November. The addition of different categories of motor sport to future Nations Cup events is being evaluated, with the view to creating festival-style events across disciplines.

 

FIA Drifting

Following the success of the second FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup in Tokyo, updated FIA Guidelines for Drifting Events were prepared as the final act of the FIA Drifting Working Group.

The Guidelines were approved by the World Council and will be presented to the new FIA Drifting Commission that will begin work in early 2019.

 

FIA Safety Commission

Appendix L of the International Sporting Code, relating to the allocation of Super Licence Points, was updated. The table of Super Licence points has been revised and is available in the appendix to this press release which can be downloaded here.

An additional amendment was approved to reduce the maximum number of championships in which a driver can accumulate points in a single calendar year from two to one.

The first-ever standard for ADR systems will be introduced, with the intention of opening the market to new suppliers and encouraging more competitive pricing.

 

FIA Women in Motorsport Commission

National selections for The Girls on Track Karting Challenge have now been completed in nine countries. The initial sociological survey results indicate a high level of satisfaction from the participants, who would also encourage female friends to try such an event. The European Final will be held at Le Mans on 8-10 March 2019 and will be followed by two training camps for the successful drivers. The project will then draw to a close on 2 October 2019 at the European Parliament in Brussels, where a karting slalom demonstration will also be hosted.

A new educational programme for girls aged from 8 to 18 was approved. This project, partly funded by the FIA Innovation Fund, will be launched in 2019. Under the name ‘FIA Girls On Track - Dare To Be Different’, the programme symbolises the collaboration of two successful existing programmes: D2BD founded by Susie Wolff and the FIA Karting Challenge launched this year in partnership with Erasmus+.  Through this programme, the FIA intends to reach a much broader audience and highlight the numerous opportunities for girls in motor sport, not only as drivers but also functions such as engineering, management and communication.

Following the FIA Women Drivers’ Academy, the Commission was pleased to confirm that new opportunities are now open for girls in Endurance, with the participation of women planned in the Rookie Test in the World Endurance Championship in 2019, and female crews in ALMS & ELMS, with the ultimate goal of bringing women drivers to the podium of the Le Mans 24 Hours from 2019.

In Formula E, nine women drivers will take part in the official tests in Saudi Arabia on 16 December, following the first event of season five of the Championship.

As part of the Commission’s collaboration with FIA Karting, a minimum of one kart has been reserved for one of the finalists of The Girls on Track Karting Challenge who could contest the 2019 Karting Academy Trophy, helping to start a potential career in motor sport.

 

FIA Disability and Accessibility Commission

The Council accepted proposals relating to licences for participants with disabilities, including:

Disabled Driver Passport, which must be issued by the ASN to the competitor with detailing the following information:

  • Manual or automatic driver’s licence
  • The amount of time it takes the competitor to independently extricate himself from his competition vehicle
  • The details of adaptations needed for the competitor to control the competition vehicle
  • Ambulant or non-ambulant competitor. This Passport will supplement the International Licences for Drivers with Disabilities.
