Are you ready for life in the fast lane? The FIA World Touring Car Championship is an international motorsport series featuring 24 all-action races in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and South America from April to November. Emerging young talents vie with well-known pros in race-ready versions of popular road cars that can reach speeds of up to 265 kph / 165 mph.
Slow and steady does not win the race in this high stakes car race around the world. Drivers must know when to go full speed ahead and when to put on the brakes, when to push for the finish line and when to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way. They balance living on the edge with remaining in control as they steer their way through the streets. Ex-Grand Prix drivers take on category experts and young up-and-coming racers in race-ready version of road cars like Chevrolet, Citroën, Honda, LADA and Volvo. This year’s calendar will blend legendary racetracks with brand new facilities as tradition and the future collide. TAG Heuer is the official timekeeper of this global event and will also sponsor a brand new innovation, the Manufacturers Against the Clock aka WTCC MAC3, a Tour de France-inspired team trial competition with three drivers from each manufacturer lapping together in a race against time. Gentlemen, start your engines because this will be a ride to remember.
Eurosport Events, the promoter of the FIA World Touring Car Championship, is thrilled to announce TAG Heuer as the Official Timing Partner of the WTCC.
Founded in Switzerland in 1860, TAG Heuer links up with the WTCC during an extremely exciting chapter in the championship’s history: the introduction of WTCC Manufacturers Against the Clock (WTCC MAC3), a team time trial contest inspired by professional cycling and a first for global motorsport, where timing means everything.
