TCR UK was the newest national TCR championship when it launched in 2018. The TCR concept was created in 2014 by Marcello Lotti, the man behind the most recent incarnation of the FIA World Touring Car Championship. 2018 saw the WTCC replaced by WTCR – the FIA World Touring Car Cup – which is now the pinnacle of TCR racing.
TCR UK is part of the ‘pyramid’ of national, regional and international TCR championships and series, enabling teams and drivers to use the same cars in different series around the world (there are over 30 series already, with more to come). TCR Australia will launch in 2019 and TCR Japan has already been announced.
A Balance of Performance system guarantees close racing, with regular technical bulletins being issued by the WSC Ltd, the company behind TCR.
The 2019 TCR UK calendar consists of seven events with fourteen sprint races between April and October at six classic UK circuits: Snetterton, Oulton Park, Croft, Brands Hatch, Silverstone and Donington Park
New for 2019 – TCR UK will run together with TCR Europe at Spa-Francorchamps in June, allowing UK competitors the chance to directly compare themselves to some of the best Touring Car drivers in Europe. In addition, TCR UK will support the GT Open series at the Silverstone GP Circuit in September
