FIA WORLD TOURING CARS COME TO RUSSIA

06.03.2013

The FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) will be holding an event in Russia for the first time shortly after SportAccord Convention takes place in the country for the first time. The Race of Russia will be held June 8-9 at the Moscow Raceway in Volokolamsk, 70 kilometres from the capital city. 

During SportAccord Convention in Saint-Petersburg, the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) will be among the governing bodies applying for membership of the SportAccord association. Perennial SportAccord Convention attendee Eurosport is the promoter of the WTCC until 2017 through its company Eurosport Events, which has held the commercial rights since the series was re-established in 2005.
