WTCR Race of Germany format explained

2022-05-25T08:07:01+02:00May 25th, 2022|2022, WTCR Race of Germany 2022|

The Nürburgring Nordschleife’s 25.378-kilometre lap length will mean a slightly different format compared to other rounds of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup. This is a refresher.

Instead of the WTCR’s normal three-phase Qualifying elimination format, one 40-minute session is scheduled with the fastest five drivers scoring points on a 10-8-6-4-2 scale.

Race 1 continues to use the standard grid, however, it’s scheduled for three laps rather than 30 minutes + 1 lap. The partially-reversed-grid Race 2 is planned for the same distance.
