The Coronavirus pandemic continues to handle the world and although the vaccinations progress and fall back, the stripping pullers of the long-distance WM (WEC) do not go away out that there will be normality again in the season 2022. ACO President Pierre Fillon and production leader Frederic Lequien do not believe in being able to spend eight races in the coming year, and therefore again with a shorter calendar is planned.

Due to the pandemielage, the WEC also plans in 2022 with a limited program of six races. If it allows the situation, a seventh race could move into the calendar, but an eight race seems to be very unlikely. The reason for the decision is not only the restrictions implemented by the countries of curbing the virus, but also the economic consequences of the crisis.

Fillon says, "Due to the Covid situation and the economic situation through the virus, it is too early to leave eight races again. I think there are six or seven runs, but we will discuss it." Should it come to a seventh race, Fillon and Lequien are planning with an additional run in Europe.

lequias explains: "It's not just a matter of budget. It's also about setting up a secure calendar in terms of travel restrictions." Which distance in Europe could already jump, is not fixed yet. Fillon says: "Everything is on the table and Silverstone is a fantastic place." The course in the United Kingdom was part of the WEC calendar between 2012 and 2019 and could celebrate his return.

According to Fillon, Brexit will not cause great difficulties in the case of a Silverstone comeback. However, the WEC could move back to Portuguese Portimao, where had passed the second course of the season 2021 over the stage last weekend. "It's a great route and the drivers like the plant. Besides, it is in Europe," says Fillon the course.

Portimao was recorded late late in the WEC calendar 2021 because the race in US Sebring has failed. Actually, three races in Europe and three races were planned in the rest of the world in the current season. With the emergency plan Portugal, the relationship has changed to four races in Europe and two races in Asia.
