Words from the FIA

Mohammed ben Sulayem, FIA President: “Over the last couple of years the FIA World Endurance Championship has been enjoying an incredible period of growth in terms of both sporting level as well as popularity. With this came the calendar expansion and last year the series settled for an eight-round schedule that provides it with both geographical diversity as well a line-up of world-class racing venues to stage the events. It is therefore great news to have the same schedule confirmed for 2025, which for WEC means a stable base on which it can grow even further.”

Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO): “The 2025 FIA WEC calendar is a continuity of 2024, with eight rounds scheduled on the world’s most famous circuits. This season is about stability and exposure in key geographical areas. 2023 was exceptional, 2024 outstanding. In 2025, we shall reach new heights, notably with Aston Martin joining Hypercar. See you next year for another amazing episode in motorsport history!”

Richard Mille, FIA Endurance Commission President: “The 2025 FIA World Endurance Championship calendar can be best summarised by the popular saying – “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. The eight rounds that we know from this year offer a great mixture of well-established circuits and give the series presence in both Americas, Asia, Europe and in the Middle East, providing the perfect stage for the events of the golden era of endurance racing to unfold. At the same time, being in so many corners of the world is great for the series, for the fans and for the manufacturers involved, giving them the chance to showcase their dream cars at so many markets.”

Frédéric Lequien, FIA World Endurance Championship CEO: “The 2025 WEC calendar is about consolidation and creating a schedule that works for both our teams and fans. The WEC is growing at an extraordinary rate but we must remain humble and by maintaining eight rounds, we are listening to our teams, stakeholders and partners by also keeping budget in mind. It is important for WEC to reach as wide an audience as possible and with eight races across five different regions, we will continue to achieve this.  We are delighted that Imola has committed to the WEC until at least 2028 – the circuit and city Mayor Marco Panieri have been a tremendous support and this year’s inaugural WEC race there was a huge success, which we look forward to emulating in 2025 and beyond.”
