FIA WTCC

Real cars. Real racing.

Taking everyday cars with everyday engines to their absolute limits, the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) is one of the fastest growing and most spectacular motorsport series in the world with 20 races staged in 10 countries across Europe, South America, Africa and Asia in 2017. Drivers compete both on specially designed circuits and street tracks. In order for each event to run smoothly, a complex, far-reaching range of logistics need to be managed. Precise planning, fast decision making and reliable delivery are vital and from the start the series’ organizers reached out to DHL to manage the ‘race behind the race’. In 2010, DHL became Official Logistics Partner of the World Touring Car Championship.

Logistical planning and organisation

Great feeling

Winning the DHL Pole Position Award in 2015 was a great feeling, and I am very proud to win it again for a second consecutive year. Qualifying is the most decisive step before a race. With this award, DHL has highlighted that selecting the right strategies, preparing thoroughly and delivering a strong performance in qualifying can give you a clear advantage over the competition and put you closer to the podium before the main racing action has started.
