It’s build-up time in the 2022 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup continues and here’s a brief summary of what’s to come when the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife hosts WTCR Race of Germany from May 26-28.
In 100 words…Germany’s WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup host venue offers a challenge like no other with its daunting 25.378-kilometre lap, 64 heart-stopping corners and changeable Eifel mountains weather combining to provide a fearsome challenge.

Opening for business in 1927 and a German Grand Prix regular until Niki Lauda’s near-fatal accident in 1976, the Nürburgring Nordschleife joined the FIA World Touring Car Championship schedule from 2015-2017 as part of the ADAC 24h-Rennen weekend.

The WTCR took over in 2018 and has delivered epic action every year since, including in 2021 when Tiago Monteiro defeated Yvan Muller within sight of the finish.
