The World Touring Car Championship's first race weekend on mainland China will take place at the Tianma Circuit in Shanghai, it has been confirmed.

It was announced last week that the Race of China would be moved from the planned venue of Guangdong International Circuit to Shanghai. Working with the China Touring Car Championship, series promoters first looked to secure a race at the Shanghai International Circuit. The Formula 1 circuit was already booked for the 6 November date, so the race will take place at Tianma instead.

Tianma Circuit was opened in 2004 and regularly hosts rounds of the CTCC as well as superbike races. It is located in the Sheshan Songjiang district, in the western outskirts of Shanghai and has already been licensed by the FIA for Touring Car competitions.

The Race of China will be the penultimate round of the WTCC season, between the rounds at Suzuka and Macau.
