MARRAKECH GP JOINS 2009 WTCC CALENDAR

The FIA World Touring Car Championship will expand to Africa in 2009. With the addition of a race meeting in Marrakech, Morocco, the world championship is now set to visit four continents next year: Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia.

Morocco's first international Grand Prix in more than 50 years was launched today during a crowded press conference at Marrakech's El Saadi Palace. The historical city will host the WTCC on a brand new temporary street circuit in the heart of the red city.

The Marrakech WTCC event will be the first international car race in Morocco after the 1958 Formula One Grand Prix in Casablanca.
