2011 Eurocup Mégane Trophy season

2011 Eurocup Mégane Trophy season
Previous: 2010 Next: 2012

The 2011 Eurocup Mégane Trophy season was the seventh season of the Renault–supported touring car category, a one-make racing series that is part of the World Series by Renault.

Stefano Comini effectively has won the championship with two rounds (and four races) to go, courtesy of winning all bar one of the previous races of the year. Whilst It would still be possible for Niccolo Nalio to beat him, Nalio would have to win all the remaining races, with Comini not finishing any of them, for this to be the case.

After featuring nine teams during the 2010 season, following the late withdrawal of Brixia Autosport, the grid features nine teams once again in 2011.

Regulation changes

Sporting

  • The points system for the 2011 season was changed to reflect the system used by the FIA for World championships. The top ten drivers in each race were awarded points as follows: 25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, and 1.
