Current season

The FIA European Touring Car Cup is an annual touring car racing event, which has been held at various locations across Europe since 2005. Unlike in previous years where it was a one-off event, for 2010 the series is a three round event.


It was created when the European Touring Car Championship finished at the end of 2004, being superseded by the World Touring Car Championship.

The cars that are eligible are those complying with the FIA Super 2000, Super 2000 Diesel, Super Production and Super 1600 technical regulations. The Drivers must either have competed in a minimum of 50% of their own National Championships; been designated by their ASN (National Sporting Authority) and who have not taken part in the FIA WTCC with a Manufacturer’s team or belong to a country in which there is no national Championship and been designated by their ASN.[1] In 2012 the Single Make Trophy was introduced for cars such as SEAT León Supercopa and Renault Clio Cup. From the 2013 season Diesel engines and the Super Production regulations were outlawed and thus only petrol engined Super 2000, SEAT León Supercopa and Super 1600 cars are allowed.

The event is broadcast live by Eurosport.[1]

Event format

  • Saturday: two 30-minute practice sessions; one 30-minute qualifying session
  • Sunday: one 15-minute warm-up session; two back-to-back 50 km races
  • The grid of Race 2 is determined by Race 1 results, with top-8 in reverse order[1]

In 2010 the event format will change from a one-off event to four separate events over the year.[2]

Point scoring system

In each class - Super 2000, Super Production and Super 1600 points are awarded in each of the two races in the following way:

  • 1st 10 points; 2nd 8 points; 3rd 6 points; 4th 5 points; 5th 4 points; 6th 3 points; 7th 2 points; 8th 1 point[1]


The points scored count towards the following trophies:[1]

  • FIA Drivers’ European Touring Car Cup Super 2000
  • FIA Drivers’ European Touring Car Cup Super Production
  • FIA Drivers’ European Touring Car Cup Super 1600
  • FIA Touring Car Nations Cup
