2018–19 FIA World Endurance Championship

ScheduleEdit

The series announced a provisional schedule on 1 September 2017 that shifted the season calendar from a spring to autumn layout with the 24 Hours of Le Mans marque event held in the middle of the championship, to one running from the May 2018 and to June 2019, including two runnings of Le Mans. This "super season" of eight races spans across more than a year instead of the usual eight months. This shift in calendar length allows the following 2019–20 season to return to a shorter length by starting in the autumn and concluding at Le Mans in the summer.[1]

The schedule does not include the Circuit of the Americas, Bahrain, Mexico City, or the Nürburgring which were all part of the 2017 championship. In addition to Le Mans being included in both 2018 and 2019, the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps is also run twice. Sebring International Raceway returns to the series for the first time since the inaugural season in 2012, although the WEC does not participate in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship's 12 Hours of Sebring. The WeatherTech series runs their race the day after WEC's 8-hour, 1,000-mile event.[2][3][4]

The schedule was revised two weeks later with the announcement of the eighth round of the championship, returning to Silverstone Circuit in the United Kingdom. The unannounced event was originally planned for February 2019, with negotiations taking place over a return to Mexico City. With the Mexico City deal failing to materialize, the event at Silverstone was moved to August 2018 to bridge the gap between Le Mans and the Asian rounds of the series starting in October. Further, the Fuji and Shanghai rounds had their dates changed,[5] however Fuji was later returned to its originally scheduled date.[6]

  1. ^ The LMP2 class winner for Spa-Francorchamps 2018 was the No. 26 G-Drive Racing invitational entry. As it is not a full-season WEC entrant, the points for the win were awarded to the No. 38 Jackie Chan DC Racing entry.

Drivers' championshipsEdit

Four titles are offered to drivers, two with world championship status. The LMP World Endurance Drivers' Championship is reserved for LMP1 and LMP2 drivers while the GTE World Endurance Drivers' Championship is available for drivers in the LMGTE categories. FIA Endurance Trophies are awarded in LMP2 and in LMGTE Am.

Entries were required to complete the timed race as well as to complete 70% of the overall winning car's race distance in order to earn championship points. A single bonus point was awarded to the team and all drivers of the pole position car for each category in qualifying. Furthermore, a race must complete two laps under green flag conditions in order for championship points to be awarded.

  1. ^ a b c d e f g h Following the 6 Hours of Fuji, Dempsey-Proton Racing was penalized for exceeding the minimum refueling time during pit stops. Upon further investigation, the FIA data loggers for the team's cars were found to have been altered to manipulate the refueling times for the cars for at least two races. The team failed to disclose their consultant who tampered with the loggers, therefore the FIA nullified all points earned by the team prior to the Shanghai round.[63]

Manufacturers' and teams' championshipsEdit

A world championship for LMGTE manufacturers is awarded, while the former title for manufacturers in LMP1 has been replaced by a world championship for LMP1 teams. FIA Endurance Trophies are awarded for LMP2 and LMGTE Am teams, while the former trophy for LMGTE Pro teams had been eliminated for 2018.
