The FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) announced their 2025 calendar on Friday ahead of this weekend’s 24 Hours of LeMans.

The season kicks off on February 28 in Qatar and ends on November 8 in Bahrain.

Mohammed ben Sulayem, FIA President:

“Over the last couple of years the FIA World Endurance Championship has been enjoying an incredible period of growth in terms of both sporting level as well as popularity. With this came the calendar expansion and last year the series settled for an eight-round schedule that provides it with both geographical diversity as well a line-up of world-class racing venues to stage the events. It is therefore great news to have the same schedule confirmed for 2025, which for WEC means a stable base on which it can grow even further.”

Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO):

“The 2025 FIA WEC calendar is a continuity of 2024, with eight rounds scheduled on the world’s most famous circuits. This season is about stability and exposure in key geographical areas. 2023 was exceptional, 2024 outstanding. In 2025, we shall reach new heights, notably with Aston Martin joining Hypercar. See you next year for another amazing episode in motorsport history!”

Richard Mille, FIA Endurance Commission President:

“The 2025 FIA World Endurance Championship calendar can be best summarised by the popular saying – “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. The eight rounds that we know from this year offer a great mixture of well-established circuits and give the series presence in both Americas, Asia, Europe and in the Middle East, providing the perfect stage for the events of the golden era of endurance racing to unfold. At the same time, being in so many corners of the world is great for the series, for the fans and for the manufacturers involved, giving them the chance to showcase their dream cars at so many markets.”

Marco Panieri, Mayor of Imola:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the city of Imola, as its geographic position at the heart of the Motor Valley, on the famous Via Emilia road, can help promote the local masteries, the Made in Italy, the products of the region like food and wine, and our own promotion project named Terre&Motori. To promote the spirit of Le Mans, the city of Imola and its staff have worked to connect the historic city centre to the race track. Another important factor for us is investment in the race track. Thanks to this event we will be able to improve infrastructure like boxes and the fan zone, making visitors and staff experience more enjoyable. Finally, I would like to say thank you to my local staff and Frédéric Lequien’s staff for their outstanding work.”

Pietro Benvenuti, Formula Imola – General Director:

“It’s a great satisfaction to announce, right here in Le Mans, the agreement with LMEM to have the two races – WEC and ELMS, to remain in Imola for the next four years. The great collaboration and mutual respect with Frédéric Lequien and Cédric Vilatte led to the great result we achieved together in 2024 and following this, we reached this important agreement with the fundamental support of the Municipality of Imola and in particular of the Mayor, Marco Panieri. WEC represents an event of great importance for the circuit and the territory demonstrated by the great participation of many spectators in love with the “Spirit of Le Mans” who came to enjoy the race and the Emilia-Romagna Region. This is why we announce that tickets to attend next year’s 6 Hours of Imola are now available on sale and can be purchased on”

Frédéric Lequien, FIA World Endurance Championship CEO:

“The 2025 WEC calendar is about consolidation and creating a schedule that works for both our teams and fans. The WEC is growing at an extraordinary rate but we must remain humble and by maintaining eight rounds, we are listening to our teams, stakeholders and partners by also keeping budget in mind. It is important for WEC to reach as wide an audience as possible and with eight races across five different regions, we will continue to achieve this. We are delighted that Imola has committed to the WEC until at least 2028 – the circuit and city Mayor Marco Panieri have been a tremendous support and this year’s inaugural WEC race there was a huge success, which we look forward to emulating in 2025 and beyond.”

The 2025 24 Hours of LeMans takes place from June 14/15.
