GP Week : Issue 93
The FIA's plans for the new World Championship 'Academy' category are taking shape. The concept is for eligible drivers to drive identical-specification same-make cars. Currently it is not decided whether the Academy category will replace or supplement the JWRC. If the Pirelli Star Driver system continues, this will be within the Academy class. It is proposed that the SWRC category will continue for 2-litre normally-aspirated S2000 cars but 1.6 litre turbocharged cars will not be eligible to score points, while it is proposed that PCWRC will not only be open to turbocharged Class N4 cars as now, but also have a separate category for two- wheel drive R3 cars.
