    The 2013 FIA World Touring Car Championship will be run on twelve events once again, and will visit Russia for the first time, on June 9 at Moscow Raceway.

    The other eleven race meetings follow the same pattern of 2012: the opener at Monza, followed by Marrakech and the European rounds, with Portugal’s event moved back to Porto’s Boavista street circuit.
    The usual round-the-world trip will fill the second part of the season: Brazil, USA (brought forward to the first weekend in September), Japan (two weeks after Sonoma), China and Macau that will host the finale for the ninth consecutive year.
