Mid season changesEdit

CalendarEdit

The 2015 schedule was announced at a meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Doha, Qatar on 3 December 2014. The season is once again being contested over twenty-four races at twelve circuits, but will see several changes of venue. The races at Salzburgring, Spa-Francorchamps, Beijing and Macau have been removed from the schedule. The Races of Germany and Portugal returned to the calendar. The race in Germany will be held at the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit[33] while the Portuguese round will be held at the Circuito Internacional de Vila Real, a street circuit 100 kilometres (62 miles) east of Porto. Two new races were added – in Thailand at Burinam and Qatar at the Losail.[34] On 23 January 2015, Twin Ring Motegi was announced as host of the Race of Japan.[35] On 30 June 2015, it was announced that the season finale at the Losail International Circuit would be moved to Friday 27 November, to prevent the event from clashing with a local political event and the season finales of the 2015 Formula One season. It will be the first time WTCC will race on a Friday.[36]

Points systemEdit

Drivers Championship points were awarded on a 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1 basis for the first ten places in each race.[1] Points were also awarded on a 5-4-3-2-1 basis for the first five places after the qualifying session.[1]

Manufacturers Championship points were awarded on the same basis as for the Drivers Championship.[1] Only the results obtained by the best two cars classified per manufacturer were taken into account.[1] All other cars of that same manufacturer were considered invisible as far as scoring points was concerned.[1]

Results and standingsEdit

RacesEdit

Compensation weightsEdit

The most competitive cars keep a 60 kg compensation weight. The other cars get a lower one, calculated according to their results for the three previous rounds. The less the cars get some good results, the less they get a compensation weight, from 0 kg to 60 kg. For the first two rounds, all the cars had a 60 kg compensation weight.

Compensation weight comes into effect for the third round, in Hungary, with Citroën penalized by a maximum of 60 kg compensation weight, as the best results cars.[37]
