The best lap times of the two fastest cars of each model in qualifying and the two best lap times of the two fastest cars of each model in both races are averaged. The calculation is based on a three event rolling average, being applied after the first two events.

The compensation weight has been determined by the lap times set in Italy and Morocco and the Chevrolet Cruze 1.6T was identified as the reference model, therefore it will receive the maximum compensation weight of 40 kg in addition to the minimum weight.

The SEAT León WTCC and Honda Civic cars will run with no compensation weight added, while the BMW 320 TC and LADA Granta cars will benefit from a 20-kg reduction of their minimum weight.
