The FIA World Endurance Championship is an endurance auto racing series held by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) since 2012 which awards international championships, cups, and trophies to the most successful drivers, teams, and manufacturers in each of the series' categories over the course of a season. Points are awarded based on individual race results as well as for earning pole position in qualifying, with the highest tally of points winning the respective championship, cup, or trophy. The highest awards in the series are the FIA World Endurance Drivers' Championship and the FIA World Endurance Manufacturers' Championship, both of which center around participants in the Le Mans Prototype categories.

World Championships Edit

World Endurance Drivers' Championship Edit

Held since the inception of the series, the Drivers' Championship was initially open to all participants in the FIA World Endurance Championship. This was altered for the 2013 season with the introduction of the FIA World Endurance Cup for GT Drivers as well as the FIA Endurance Trophies for LMP2 and LMGTE Am drivers. The Drivers' Championship was then limited to participants in the LMP1 and LMP2 categories, although LMP2 drivers and privately entered LMP1 drivers are also eligible for their own FIA Trophies.

World Manufacturers' Championship Edit

The Manufacturers' Championship has been exclusive to LMP1 entries supported by major automotive manufacturers. Points were awarded to the leading car from each manufacturer until the 2014 season when the top two finishers from each manufacturer were eligible for points. In 2014 the LMP1 class was also divided, with manufacturers limited solely to the LMP1-H category. For the 2012 season, manufacturers were required to drop their two lowest scoring finishes in events other than the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Endurance Trophy for Private LMP1 Teams Edit

A teams title is not held for manufacturers in the LMP1 category, instead a Trophy is awarded to privately entered LMP1 teams. Note that points in this Trophy were awarded solely on the finishing position of private LMP1 entries, with manufacturer entries not included. Although teams may have earned points for a win in the Trophy, they did not score a win in the overall LMP1 standings.
