The 2013 WTCC season schedule has been finalised

Organisers of the FIA World Touring Car Championship have finally issued a complete version of next year’s championship calendar, which will feature 24 races held across 12 venues in five continents.

As has typically been the case, the championship will kick off at Monza in March and end on the streets of Macau in November.

After being missing in action from the earlier iteration of the calendar, Marrakech is back on the final version, while last year’s last-minute additions in Slovakia and Austria proved popular enough to warrant well-deserved returns to the 2013 schedule in May and June respectively.

New to the 2013 calendar is the sixth event on the calendar at the Moscow Ring in Russia, while the Race of Curitiba has been reinstated as well.

Dumped from the schedule is the traditional round at Valencia in Spain (pictured top), which had been slated for the second round of the championship season on the provisional calendar.

The 2013 FIA World Touring Car Championship now reads as follows:
