The 2020 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup marked the start of Goodyear’s exclusive tyre supplier agreement with all teams using the Eagle F1 SuperSport race tyre.

At the completion of each race weekend, the Goodyear #FollowTheLeader hashtag promoted the title pacesetter.

In addition to carrying the Goodyear #FollowTheLeader yellow windscreen trip on their car up until such time that they no longer topped the title order, the driver at the head of the standings after each event was handed the Goodyear #FollowTheLeader yellow jacket to wear.

Inspired by professional cycling events such as the Tour de France, the first yellow jacket presentation in the WTCR was made to Yann Ehrlacher at WTCR Race of Belgium with the Cyan Racing Lynk & Co driver remaining in yellow until the end of the season.
