With the FIA World Touring Car Championship currently on its mid-season break here is a summary of the WTCC season so far – in numbers of course.

While July and August means holiday time for most, for several leading drivers from the FIA World Touring Car Championship there is still plenty of work to do before they are able to head to the beach for some much needed relaxation.

Sébastien Loeb and José María Lopéz claimed a victory apiece as the 2015 FIA World Touring Car Championship got off to a spectacular start with two action-packed races in Argentina on 8 March.

Honda has been handed a home boost in the FIA World Touring Car Championship with confirmation that its Civic WTCC will run without any compensation weight for the upcoming JVC KENWOOD WTCC Race of Japan.

Ace Argentine Néstor Girolami has reiterated his hopes of an FIA World Touring Car Championship future after he completed his initial two-event deal with a points finish in OSCARO.com WTCC Race of Portugal recently.

José María López reckons he’s in an “ideal situation” to make it two FIA World Touring Car Championship crowns in quick succession after reaching the summer break 55 points clear in the title race. But with eight races over four weekends still to come – and a maximum of 220 points still up for grabs – the Citroën ace still has a fight on his hands.

FIA World Touring Car Championship driver Nicky Catsburg has won the Spa 24 Hours, a round of the Blancpain Endurance Series.

It’s Hungarian Grand Prix time this weekend. While there will be no home drivers in action, that wasn’t the case in May when local hero Norbert Michelisz claimed a hugely popular victory in the second MOL Group WTCC Race of Hungary.

He’s won the FIA World Touring Car Championship four times and dominated the Trophée Andos ice racing series in the past. Now the 45-year-old is gearing up for his FIA World Rallycross Championship debut in his native France in early September.
