6 races on FIA WEC 2022 schedule

The FIA World Endurance Championship has announced their 2022 schedule.

The schedule will once again be 6 races, just like the 2021 edition.

The season starts on 12-13 March at Sebring, with two days of Prologue, ahead of the 1000 Miles (max 8 hours) being run at the same circuit on 18 March.

The 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps will race on 7 May, and will be the final preparation prior to the 24 Hours Of Le Mans on 11-12 June.

Monza is back on the schedule with a 6 hours race, after the big success this year. It will once again be mid-July, the 10th before everything will be packed into containers and shipped out of Europe.

The series hopes to be able to visit Fuji Motor Speedway on 11 September, having had to miss both the 2020 and 2021 editions due to COVID-19.

The season ends on 12 November in Bahrain, with an 8 hours race.

The schedule is naturally subject to potential COVID-19 restrictions, since nobody knows how the situation is in 2022. A lot of people thought that everything would be back to normal after 2020, but we all know now, that this isn’t the case.

Compared to the 2021 edition, there is no Portimao race in Portugal – but that race only appeared on the schedule, as a replacement for Sebring, since the series wasn’t able to travel to the USA.
