About WTCC

The World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) is one of only 3 world championships fully sanctioned by the FIA. Taking place since 2005, the WTCC has staged events in 16 countries over 4 continents, offering a truly global platform for what is the highest level of touring-car racing.

The typical WTCC event consists of two 50km sprint races, with the top 8 finishers from Race 1 starting Race 2 in reverse order. Drivers participate in qualifying for the event which sees all cars on track for an initial 20 minute session (Q1), followed by a final 10 minute session (Q2) where the top 10 drivers from Q1 battle it out for pole-position.

For 2010, the WTCC has adapted the same scoring system introduced into F1, which sees the first 10 drivers scoring points, 25 for 1st place, 18, for 2nd, 15 for 3rd, 12 for 4th, 10 for 5th, 8, 6, 4, and finally 2 points for 10th.
