20 hours of racing, 100 supercars, 100 drivers.
On a brand-new TILKE designed track, Marrakech will host for the 8th time the FIA World Touring Car Championship (FIA WTCC), Africa's biggest motorsports event!
The brand new layout, designed by world-renown architect Hermann TILKE, will be sure to delight drivers and fans alike, as it encircles the Paddock and Hospitality structures. Fans and VIP guests will not miss a second of the action. The grade-2 track will also test the drivers as they discover the track for the first time this year, driving anti-clockwise against the clock. More turns will allow for more overtaking, as drivers break hard on shorter straights to take on the tighter chicanes, giving fans a great show!
This year's program will also feature RADICAL SPORTSCARS, which never fails to provide a muscled performance of drivers and cars very close to the public.
Last but not least, the Moroccan national championship will also feature its best Moroccan drivers in a race that is sure to get the audiences very excited.
In all, FIA WTCC Race of Morocco 2017 will host 4 racing series and 1 exhibition all weekend long. That's 100 supercars racing in the streets of Marrakech. Free practice on Friday to test the fast semi-urban track and set up the cars; Qualifying on Saturday to determine the starting grid; Podium racing on Sunday to crown the winners … the show is sure to provide the adrenaline rush and sensational show of Marrakech Grand Prix.
For those in search of adrenaline, a double-seater Formula1 and the RS1 brought by Renault, Official Partner, will delight the fortunate ones with hot laps around the new track everyday during off-racing hours.
