FIA WEC 2025 with no changes to the schedule

The FIA World Endurance Championship has announced the race schedule for the 2025 season.

There are no changes in the number of races, nor the locations compared to this year.

The season starts on 28 February with the first race weekend in Qatar, where the duration of the race once again is 1812 Kilometers or 10 Hours, depending on what is reached first. The Prologue will happen at the same circuit, in the week leading into the race.

The next race will be at the 6 Hours of Imola in Italy, in the middle of April, which is a repeat of the success from the 2024 event, where plenty of spectators were present, in some, at times, challenging weather conditions.

Spa Francorchamps in May is the traditional lead into the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will be held on 14-15 June, with the scrutineering and test day leading into that.

13 July is the date for Interlagos in Brazil, before COTA in the USA is scheduled for early September.

The season ends with the 6 Hours of Fuji in Japan, late September, and the 8 hours race in Bahrain in November.

The eight race weekends fits the series very well, plus several of the venues has multi-year contracts in place.

Quite a lot of people, especially the Brits, had hoped for a race at Silverstone. That won’t happen in 2025, but there are already rumours of it happening in 2026, by either adding a ninth round to the calendar, or to start rotating between the venues, that don’t have long-term contracts.
