Q3 will add spice to qualifying
And the rolling start for Race 1 was dropped
Besides the significant step forward in terms of the cars’ look and performance, the 2014 WTCC presents itself with some interesting new features in the Sporting Regulations.
With the maintenance of the top-ten reverse grid for the second race, the well established FIA point scoring system and the compensation weight for balancing the different cars’ performance, the major interventions were about start and qualifying.
The rolling start for Race 1 was dropped and now both races will have a standing start.
The Qualifying session was extended with the addition of a Q3 leg reserved for the top-five drivers classified in Q2; they will hit the track one-by-one and complete a single timed lap, to determine the first five positions on the grid for Race 1.
