2016 ETCC news & rumours

TCN2 class confirmed for ETCC
http://www.fiaetcc.com/new-tcn2-tech...-etcc-in-2016/

Personally I would expect Engstler to enter a Golf instead of a BMW. As for others too early to say.

Still think it would have been ideal for TCR and ETCC to merge and create a powerful GP2-style feeder championship for WTCC.

i assume ETCC will have a smaller grid next year compared to 2015.

some of the SMT drivers will move over to ohter TCR series, like Pfister to ADAC TCR.

i'd expect Rikli rather to enter a TCR Civic than his Civic FD as the S2000 class will likely have no other entries.

wonder howmany TC2T cars we will see in 2016.

TCR national series will hurt ETCC.

To certain extent it's a shame TCR International has rounds outside Europe. Would rather see a strong European series. Add some extra races like Macau and create (for example) a 3 round TCR World Cup.

Also because relative low costs is a strong part of TCR an European only series would be more logicial. In my opinion at least.

Not sure Nordschleife is good for ETCC. Seems to be a shared race with WTCC ... but if someone has a big accident in ETCC (which, considering the general level of drivers is quite possible) that may be bad for the WTCC race.
Although better for track-side viewers.

Should have gone to the Hungaroring instead, IMO

More news:

http://touringcars.ru/2015/12/02/etc...endar-konfety/

http://touringcars.ru/2015/12/02/etc...t-dve-mashiny/

1) S1600 champion to get full TCN-2 season in 2017, and, most importantly, TCN-2 champion to get a full season in WTCC. Ribeiro is trying to make a touring car ladder inside his championships. Curious to see how that will work. Very good idea, though I believe not the easiest one to implement
2) Double points for Vila Real
3) 2 SEATs for Krenek Motorsport (driven by Petr Fulin and Chris Johannes Schreiber)

Will the ETCC race together with the WTCC at the Nordschleife, or separate races?

ETCC champion to race in WTCC 2017. At one European round. While the S1600 champion will be given a test in TCN-2 car

http://www.fiaetcc.com/once-in-a-lif...etcc-champion/

Good that they are trying to build a touring car ladder but I'm not sure one round in WTCC is enough
