The FIA WTCC Race of Slovakia is a round of the World Touring Car Championship, currently held at the Automotodróm Slovakia Ring near the city of Bratislava.

The race made its debut in the World Touring Car Championship as the fourth round of the 2012 World Touring Car Championship season, and as a replacement for the proposed Argentinian round.[1]

The race debuted in 2012; the first race saw the Lukoil Racing SEAT León driver Gabriele Tarquini take victory after the qualifying winner Norbert Michelisz slipped down in the field, only to be pushed out by Yvan Muller. The first race saw a first podium for Alexey Dudukalo, the Russian driver teammate of Tarquini in the Lukoil Racing team.

Race 2 was won by Robert Huff, his first win for the season.
