The FIA World Motor
Sports Council has approved the calendar for the 2019 WTCR.
The series will be run over ten events, kicking off on the first weekend
of April at Marrakech and ending at Sepang in a date yet to be announced,
in the first half of December.
Except for the event in Malaysia, all the venues were already part of the
2018 calendar: Hungaroring, Slovakiaring, Zandvoort, Nürburgring and Vila
Real in Europe, Ningbo, Suzuka and Macau in Asia.
The Sporting Regulations have been amended, introducing the allocation of
points for the first Qualifying (5-4-3-2-1) and a new point scale for the
top-15 drivers in each race (25-20-16-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1).
The maximum number of entries has been fixed at 32, while race-by-race
entrants will not be eligible to score points.
