Event Details:


The FIA World Touring Car Championship visits the Qatar track for a floodlit spectacular from 24-25 November.

It will be the last round of the FIA World Touring Car Championship

While José María López has wrapped up his third WTCC title, the battle for the coveted runner-up spot and, indeed, third place will be intense. 

Yvan Muller, López’s factory Citroën team-mate and preparing for his final WTCC races before he retires, occupies second on 235 points but works Honda trio Tiago Monteiro (204 points), Norbert Michelisz (190) and Rob Huff (180) all retain mathematical possibilities to snatch the position.

The Moroccan driver Mehdi Bennani, who became the first Arabic driver to win an FIA world championship motor race when he won at WTCC Race of China in 2014, will head to the Middle East as the WTCC Trophy winner for 2016 following another impressive season driving a Sébastien Loeb Racing Citroën C-Elysée WTCC. He is sixth in the WTCC Drivers’ standings with 176 points but could end up a career-high third in the table if results go his way in Qatar.

The entrance at the Grandstand and PADDOCK is free for the 2-days event so come to live all the excitment of this championship at the circuit!
