2012 FIA European Touring Car Cup

Just noticed the calendar for the 2012 FIA ETCC, which is reverting to a multiple event format.

The first three rounds will be held during WTCC events at Monza, Valencia and Salzburgring. Does this mean combined fields or separate races?

ETCC HOSTED AT THREE WTCC EVENTS

7 Dec 2011

In 2012 the FIA European Touring Car Cup will revert to a multiple event format, just like in 2009 when it was held on three events: Braga, Salzburgring and Franciacorta. Next year the European series will comprise four race meetings. The first three of them will be held during the World Touring Car Championship events at Monza, Valencia and Salzburg.

An ETCC stand alone event will conclude the season at Imola’s glorious racetrack named after Enzo and Dino Ferrari.

Rounds 1 & 2 - 11 March: Autodromo di Monza (Italy)
Rounds 3 & 4 - 1 April: Circuit Ricardo Tormo, Valencia (Spain)
Rounds 5 & 6 - 20 May: Salzburgring (Austria)
Rounds 7 & 8 - 24 June: Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, Imola (Italy)

That's interesting! The track selection seems to counter the lack of proper touring car championships in the Mediterrean and Central Europe.

I believe that it should be a parrallel championship like in Superstars' International and Italian championships, so WTCC regulars would score too for the European championship.

I don't think it has been specified yet but I presume separate races, unless very few cars turn up.

The ETCC cars can only be normally aspirated 2 litre or 1600 n/a, where as next year all WTCC entries have to be 1.6 turbo, unless they are 1-off entries like the Lacettis at Macau.

There appears to be 1 Peugeot announced for the ETCC so far, would hope we will see Hartmann back to defend the title. Would be nice to get a decent field of 6 or 7 front runners as I think it could be good little series if they could get a few decent names alongside the normal entrants they seem to get.

There are certainly a shed-load of N/A S2000 cars around for relatively little outlay if a team wants a decent crack at an FIA European title. I'm hopefully of a strong turn-out, one can dream A Hungarian team has confirmed somewhere their entry in a Pug 407 S2000

Which incidentally has spent the last few years in a shed. My guess is they will share the grid with WTCC, will give them the grid fillers they could find themselves in desperate need of.

Slovakian team Homola motorsport recently bought Ex-STCC (Stureson) BMW 320si. I expect them to enter the race at Slovakiaring with Mato Homola (last year driving Alfa Romeo 156).

Pff, they're really getting desperate for entries now: http://www.touringcartimes.com/article.php?id=7220

Allowing the Leon Cupra and Clio Cup cars? The majority of the european national series have grids of a higher standard, just kill the frigg'n championship already!

Michelisz has a positive influence on touring car racing in Hungary.
After Tim Gabór in the Peugeot 407, another hungarian might appear on the starting grid of the ETCC: Ferenc Ficza in an Alfa Romeo 156 (ex. Thompson)
