FIA WEC 2020/2021 unveiled
The 2020-2021 FIA World Endurance Championship provisional calendar has been announced today.
The eight races will be run in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa and America. Season 9 will feature an additional European round at Monza on October; the temple of Italian motorsport at which the WEC Prologue took place in April 2017 has never before hosted an FIA WEC race but has always been a strong favourite with teams and fans alike.
Completely new to the calendar is the historic and upgraded Kyalami circuit in South Africa. The 6 Hours of the Southafrican round will open up new vistas to endurance racing fans across the world and firmly establish world-class racing in Africa.
These two venues are complemented by popular and iconic tracks such as Silverstone, Fuji, Sebring, Bahrain, Sebring and Spa-Francorchamps. Six and eight-hour races will feature ahead of the season finale, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, in June 2021.
The FIA WEC 2020-2021 calendar will be presented to the FIA Endurance Commission, presided over by Richard Mille, and will be submitted to the FIA World Motor Sport Council for approval in Geneva on 6th March 2020.
