Madkart should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2016-2017 TCR Las Americas

Big news coming from the Dominican Republic last week as a new Caribbean/Central American touring car championship has been announced with seven rounds confirmed starting at the end of this year... more here.

Being from Puerto Rico, this is very surprising to see as our motorsports body in our island has a very good relationship with the motorsports body in DR so we tend to stay alert on what motorsports activities goes around the two countries and nobody expected this at all. A huge bombshell for us for sure, but everyone is extremely excited about this. Just a shame that Puerto Rico didn't make it on the calendar.

Just goes to show how much motorsports is growing in the Americas. Who else is excited?

Nice!

I hope that it airs on Fox Sports 3, at least locally.

TCR Las Americas doesn't appear in Mexico City F1 timetable. I suppose the debut has brought forward, but I can't find news.

Is assumed that there will go to European teams with their cars. On TcT write, Pepe Oriola is going to take part in Las Americas Series.

I'm fairly certain this series was meant to be an off-season opportunity for the European and Asian competitors, obviously open to Central-American entries but I'm fairly certain the motorsport market there needs to develop further to have a decent field of native entries. There's no series in the region, unless the Dominican Republic series did get up and running.

To put it simply, maybe 10, if that.

I read that Oriola wanted to run the American Series...

Mexicans are busy with the return of Nascar Mexico. Michel Jourdain is the new promoter, and is encouraging Super Copa Telcel V8 drivers to join. No TCR there I think.

I remember the Dominican Republic announcing a series but I can't find anything about it anymore. I assume it's quietly died before birth.

Otherwise nothing in the region.
