Coupled to the World of Rally, the WTCC has been the
contest with the greatest number of changes
approved at the World Council of
Motor held in Vienna. However, the World of Cars will look like in 2017
cars TCR will arrive to your grill under the new class ‘WTCC2’. In addition,
the championship will increase the number of points in the game the main race of
each of the ten tests that make up the calendar of 2017, in addition to vary
also the score of the MAC3. At the request of the promoter of the championship,
Eurosports Events, the FIA is studying the application of a system ‘Joker
street circuits.

The calendar of the fia WTCC proposed
by 2017, almost can be labeled provisional
since eight of the ten races
provided are subject to confirmation. All in all, the main novelties are
the return of Monza and Macau, replacing the quotes in
Slovakia and Thailand
. The contest will start in Marrakech in April and will end
with the night race in Losail in December, just after the expected
back to Macau three years after his departure. The category managed by
Eurosport Events also keeps the appointment at the Nordschleife, on the occasion of the
24 Hours Nürburgring.


Other measures passed in the face 2017 is the allocation of a greater number of points in the ‘Main Race’ or main race of each weekend, recognizing the higher value of this compared to the inaugural race. In this way, it will be passed to the following score pattern: 1 (30 pts) / 2nd (23 pts) / 3rd (19 pts) / 4th (16 pts) / 5th (13 pts) / 6th (10 pts) / 7th (7 pts) / 8th (4 pts) / 9th (2 pts) / 10 (1 pt). In addition, with the presence of only two manufacturers after the departure of Citroën Racing and Lada Sport, the MAC3 will deliver 12 and 8 points.

All in all, the main novelty that picks up the WTCC in 2017,
precisely as a consequence of the departure of the two brands mentioned, is the
inclusion on the grill of the vehicles FIA TCN2 under the new class ‘WTCC2’

to comply with the rules of FIA and will have its own drivers title and
equipment. Finally, during the World Council of the Motor has also been
