Entries for the 2022 FIA World Endurance Championship have opened, with competitors willing to participate next season accepted until Friday 7 January
2022 FIA WEC season is set to start with the official pre-season test – the Prologue at Sebring, taking place from 12-13 March. The following weekend the 1000 Miles of Sebring will open next year’s six-event schedule.
This will be followed by a three-event European leg of the calendar, including the TotalEnergies 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (7 May), the 24 Hours of Le Mans (11/12 June) and the 6 Hours of Monza (10 July), all the three events that featured on this year’s schedule.
2022 is also set to mark the return of the world’s premier endurance championship to Japan, with the 6 Hours of Fuji, scheduled for 11 September, set to feature on the calendar for the first time since 2019. The season will traditionally conclude with the 8 Hours of Bahrain (12 November).
This also marks the opening of entries for the 90th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
January’s deadline allows for the equipment to be shipped by sea freight in time for mid-March’s Prologue. This is part of cost-saving measures introduced last year that includes exclusive use of sea freight for events taking place overseas.
