If my information is correct, the cost of a TCR car is about 150000 Euros, the WTCC TC1 one is something 2 to 3 times higher than TCR ones

(he was asking the budget to run the car in WTCR compared to the old TCR international series, not the budget to buy the car).

i guess the budget will be more because of 3 races not 2 each weekend plus the big entry fee.

Why the big entry fee increase? Because FIA fatcat egos, and FIA likes money?

looks like Honda is in for the next year, I'd assume Jas will operate as a "non-works" team

This suggests me M1RA will change car or cathegory. Norbi mentioned KIA or Audi and earlier the TCR Eurocup or TCR Germay or Italy (maybe that was the team leader Bari David).

I also don't understand this but I vote to the "likes money" option.

As I know in the WTCC this was a cost of 1 car, so it's about the half.

So a season for a private driver with a TC1 car cost something between 500 000 to 1 million euros depend of the car. Obviously the Chevy was the cheaper choice, a Citroen was the more costy choice. Honda was somwhere between them depend of the config.

The car itself a lot more cheaper in the TCR, because of the cost limit, which is as I remember 128000 euro/car.

But this is not include the spare parts, tyres, the cost of logistics and the cost of the crew and maybe the payment of the driver + the repairs after accidents or might be a new car if the old one will be unrepairable (M1RA has to throw 2 cars in this season - Tassi's car after Salzburgring and Colciago's car after Oschersleben)

But the WTCC was an FIA world championship, which provide a much greater/higher rank then the a world cup.
