World Sprint Racing Championship was an international racing series which, compared to the endurance-minded World Sportscar Championship, concentrated on shorter grand touring races (usually around 150 kilometres). While generally adhering to the same FIA homologation rules as WSC, the series had more relaxed manufacturing requirements and sometimes allowed experimental prototypes to compete in the same class against series production cars. In general, any car that could easily run in street-legal form was allowed to race in one of the four categories defined by engine displacement.
The series came to an end after the 1970 season, as racing cars started to become more and more specialised compared to street cars.
