2020 WEC
Previous: 2019 Next: 2020–21 (AEC)

The 2020 IVRC WEC season will be the 2nd IVRC WEC season. Bruno Spano of C-Force Racing will defend the LMP1 drivers' championship, while his team C-Force Racing will defend the LMP1 teams' championship. Audi is the reigning LMP1 constructors' champion. Carlos Frau will not defend his GTE drivers' championship, as he competes in the newly-created LMP2 class. Similar, his team MPG Competition does not return to defend the GTE teams' championship. Aston Martin is the reigning GTE constructors' champion.

The 2020 season is intended to be a transition season before the series will switch from the WEC-inspired concept to the IMSA-inspired concept of the AEC.
