TCR UK and Europe to share grid at Spa round
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.”
