Season’s opener deferred by one week

The 2014 FIA World Touring Car Championship opening event will be postponed by one week.

The WTCC Race of Marocco that had been originally scheduled for taking place at Marrakech’s Circuit Moulay el Hassan on April 6, has been deferred to April 13 to meet with a request coming from local authorities.
