Season three of the WTCR − FIA World Touring Car Cup won’t be without its challenges and compromises, but every effort is being made to continue the success of the category as the following explains.

*Calendar revised so 80 per cent of the original number of races is possible in order to protect the WTCR, protect jobs and protect the sport as a whole
*Europe-only schedule puts the onus firmly on economic and social responsibility and is far less complex logistically
*Planning 16 races − which is possible due to the WTCR’s sprint format and cost-capping measures already implemented by the FIA − maintains the sporting credibility of the series and meets the requirements of the numerous global broadcasters
*With Eurosport Events not reducing its marketing and promotional investment, the global exposure and popularity enjoyed by the series, its partners and stakeholders is not adversely affected
