TCR UK and Europe to share grid at Spa round

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

TCR UK com­peti­tors will share a grid with TCR Europe driv­ers at Spa next year as both cat­e­gory’s cal­en­dars have been fi­nalised.

The UK se­ries an­nounced a pro­vi­sional cal­en­dar last month for its sec­ond sea­son that in­cluded Spa but gave no date or in­for­ma­tion about the meet­ing. Now the TCR Europe sched­ule has been set­tled, it has been able to re­veal the two will com­pete along­side each other at the Bel­gian venue on June 8/9.

Or­gan­is­ers have said that this tie-up demon­strates how driv­ers and teams can race in mul­ti­ple TCR se­ries around the world, as well as pro­gress­ing up the TCR lad­der.

“That’s the beauty of TCR, you can com­pete else­where,” said a TCR UK spokesper­son. “We had a num­ber of driv­ers go over to TCR Europe last year to dip their toes in the wa­ter and this al­lows ev­ery­body to do that. It will be an amaz­ing TCR grid and teams are re­ally pos­i­tive about it.

“If one or two of our driv­ers shine, there are [Eu­ro­pean] teams there that are look­ing and take no­tice for the fol­low­ing year.”
