WTCR season finale moved to MotorLand Aragón

The World Touring Car Cup season finale has been moved from Adria in Italy to MotorLand Aragón in Spain on November 14-15.

Eurosport Events, the promoters of the WTCR, confirmed yesterday that Adria was unable to host the last race due to delayed track works.

“The last circuit inspection yesterday came as a disappointment but a simple reality: Adria won’t be able to meet the homologation deadline and host the WTCR season finale,” said François Ribeiro, head of Eurosport Events.

“We had to react at very short notice with the FIA to put an alternative plan in place, and I can only be grateful to our partner MotorLand Aragón for stepping in with a viable and safe solution.”

The teams are currently racing at the Spanish circuit, meaning that all cars, equipment and more will remain there until November 14-15.

“All our teams and suppliers will leave their equipment at Aragón, minimising travels for them across countries under lockdown,” said Ribeiro.

“Eurosport Events and the FIA are working hand in hand to deliver a season finale in the safest possible conditions at a time when the sanitary situation across Europe is deteriorating significantly.”
