FIA WORLD TOURING CAR CUP
In 2018 the FIA World Touring Car Championship was renamed the World Touring Car Cup. The series is the FIA's international racing championship for 'touring' cars; typically the most popular family saloons or hatchbacks. The global championship visits some of the more interesting and unusual racing circuits across the world with three short races each race weekend encouraging close wheel to wheel action.
The Touring Car Racing regulations cater for front-wheel drive, four/five door saloons or hatchbacks using turbocharged production engines with a capacity of between 1750 and 2000 cc with a maximum output of 350 bhp. In addition to the FIA World Touring Car Cup, there are 19 further TCR based championships around the world, with manufacturers including: Alfa Romeo, Audi, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, KIA, LADA, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, SEAT, Subaru and Volkswagen homologating cars.
