Since we start to gather quite a lot of news regarding 2016, I've decided to open such thread.

Well, welcome to the Team Time Trial in WTCC from 2016. Should be confirmed on Friday

The FIA World Motor Sport Council has today confirmed that TCN-2 will now represent cars that are built to the technical regulations used by the new TCR International Series, replacing the previous plan to use Argentinian Turismo Nacional cars as the blueprint for the class.

...

The FIA has also confirmed that both classes will be able to compete in World Touring Car Championship events. This is effectively covered in the current sporting regulations, with Super 2000 TC1 cars as the principal class of the WTCC, with TCN cars allowed to compete, often under national homologation and unable to score championship points unless entered for the full season.

...

Perhaps the key element of this change is the impact to the European Touring Car Cup, where the TCR-specification SEAT León Eurocup car has been the vehicle of choice this season. From next year, the Single-Make Trophy class in which the León is entered will be reclassified as TCN-2 and will allow all vehicles built to TCR regulations to compete.

Ok, it's allowed to compete in WTCC but realistically no one would enter - same like TC2 class in 2014 - no reason to constantly drive at the back.

It's a great feeder formula though so should be perfect for ETCC

MAC3 ? would that mean every manufacturer will have to enter at 3 Drivers then?

Would it be safe to assume they'll be running a Swedish, or at the very least, a Scandinavian driver?

Given that only Bjork and Dahlgren (both Swedish), and Rustad (Norwegian) have raced for them in the WTCC, I'd be surprised if they don't run a Scandinavian.

Could be anybody in the other car though in my opinion.

The rumoured Team Time Trial has now been confirmed for 2016.

I feel more than a little intrigued by this, but I won't pass judgement until I've seen it for real. At least it's something a bit different.

I'd say we'll see at least 3 Volvos. Maybe one with a privateer, but I'm sure they want to participate in the MAC3 challenge.

MAC3, because there's nothing more thrilling than watching three cars trying not to overtake or hit each other.

The story was based on the FIA's on press release, which was wrong and has been changed.

Points scale for MAC3 here

http://www.fiawtcc.com/tour-de-franc...ials-for-wtcc/

I'm surprised with such small difference between 1st and 2nd - think they should have given 12 points for the win.

Same for Q3 by the way, I think they should increase the points, for example a 8-5-3-2-1 scale would do the trick

The point gaps are a bit odd. 2 points between 1st-2nd & 2nd-3rd but 3 between 3rd-4th. If they're going to award points to the top 6, they might as well use the old 10-6-4-3-2-1 system.

The qualifying points are fine as they are. Increasing the number would put too much of an emphasis on qualifying. Remember, quali points were introduced as an incentive to prevent drivers from deliberately trying to qualify 10th and take advantage of the reverse grid.

The C-Elysseé is also made in Spain. The Vigo factory was opened in 1958.
