FIA WEC:  real world relevance for all


Start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2015

 

After four seasons of incredible competition and growth, the FIA World Endurance Championship has matured and established itself as one of the world’s most revered and respected motor sport series.

2016 promises to be another spectacular season of racing, with 32 entries across the four categories of competition, LMP1, LMP2, LMGTE Pro and LMGTE Am, plus a calendar which for the first time features nine races held in Europe, Latin and North America, Asia and the Middle East.   

Since 2012 the WEC has featured manufacturer teams from current World Champions Porsche, Audi Toyota, Ferrari, Aston Martin and now, in 2016, we will welcome Ford to the WEC family.  The combination of committed major automotive manufacturers and some of the finest drivers anywhere in the sport ensures that spectators are privileged to be watching some of the highest level endurance racing of all time.

Add to this the many privateer teams battling it out across the classes, plus evocative and storied locations like Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps, Nürburgring, Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez and of course the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the recipe is there for a championship enjoying huge popularity.

The WEC offers fans of endurance racing and their families all-inclusive events in each of the countries we visit, where they can enjoy unrivalled access to teams and drivers and family-friendly entertainment – all at a sensible price. 

Welcome to endurance racing, welcome to our world!
