WTCC - Series heads to Russia

The 2013 FIA World Touring Car Championship will be run over 12 events and will visit Russia for the first time on June 9 at Moscow Raceway.

The other 11 race meetings follow the same pattern as 2012: the opener at Monza, followed by Marrakech and the European rounds, with Portugal’s event moved back to Porto’s Boavista street circuit.

The usual round-the-world trip will fill the second part of the season: Brazil, USA (brought forward to the first weekend in September), Japan (two weeks after Sonoma), China and Macau that will host the finale for the ninth consecutive year.
