2015 WTCC news & rumours

I believe ir's already time to open such thread.

http://www.sportmotores.com/portal/!...20055&id=40668 Sadly, no Porto in 2015

If WTCC drops Macau (though in recent Autosport magazine Eric Neve states that it's too early to write it off), there would be no street circuits with Marrakech becoming a permament one. Great

i never liked porto. boring track with barely places to overtake.

that would also mean salzburgring is likely to stay on the calendar?

Macau pays WTCC/KSO to go there. If WTCC stops going to Macau, that means either Macau stops paying or they found another pay master.

Marrakech permanent? Do you have a source for that? I wonder if they would change anything to the track if it becomes permanent.

FWIW, I absolutely love the track in Porto, for several reasons: scenery, challenge (especially the corners after the long straight), there is a possibility for overtaking in the chicanes at the chicanes braking up the straight, and last but not least, Porto is a wonderful city to be.

Mat O Homola wrote this on his facebook two days ago:
Heading to WTCC 2015! facebook.com/matohomola #wtcc #fiawtcc #2015 #trenkler #photo #gofastorgohome
But there are no TC2 cars allowed next year, of am I wrong?
A strong, but big field of TC1 cars would be amazing.

As for the tracks for 2015: please no Porto for next year, races are dull. Macau is cool, I like the races there. I would like the WTCC to go to another track in Argentina or Brazil next year, like Interlagos or the Streets of Sao Paolo (Indycar) track.

Do u know if RML factory is going to build new other chevy?? btw NO tc2 cars next year.
we know for sure that HONDA SWEDEN will enter next year with Rydell as driver. i dont know how much appeal will have the actual Lada Granta next year but i guess that Citroen will increase their cars giving one for sure to chinese MA. i just wonder if they will give one or two cars at an indipendent team.

Well, Homola also wrote that he needs 100000 likes on his page to get to WTCC, so I believe it's not certain yet, however it would have been great to see him in WTCC. It's likely though,especially if we consider that he was invited to test for Campos by Eurosport

In the same Autosport magazine Yves Matton said that they investigate the customer effort opportunity, and Sebastien Loeb Racing is being one of the potential candidates

been there twice, 2012 and 2013, beautiful track to visit
there are no grandstands just the hills around the track - makes a great atmosphere also great to watch. From the hills around the "Fahrerlagerkurve" you can see almost the whole track.

And considering his touring car background I think he'd be an excellent signing on track as well.

Well, I believe his participation is possible if only he finds a works drive. Which is highly unlikely unfortunately

ROAL seems to be the same next year: Coronel, Chilton and Chevys, obvious.
Is Citroen building new cars for next year already, I remember reading that somewhere a few months ago. And a customer Citroen team seems both good news and bad news, more cars, but maybe even a 1-2-3-4-5 every race for Citroen.
Any news yet from any manufacturer joining the WTCC next year? The current 16 cars are just not enough for old school WTCC action!!!
