Seat Cupra was the original reference car for TCR BOP.

When they brought out the Cupras they detuned the UK ones by 50 bop to make them slower than BTCC

Oulton Park today in Britcar had a NGTC Avensis and TCR Leon on track at the same time.

NGTC 0.7s quicker that TCR in qualifying, but TCR 0.7s quicker that NGTC in the race.

However, I'm not sure how much of an accurate comparison this was. Toyota was still using 2016-spec GPRM parts with a driver who had barely driven the car before.

That's because the Seat SuperCopa was the template for TCR, ISTR

Heard some rumours that the BMW Compact Cup might be a support race? Anyone else heard this?

The two support series announced so far are both BRSCC series (National FF1600 and MX5 SuperCup) so I suppose any BRSCC series is a potential support, and that includes the BMW Compact Cup.

The BRSCC are probably just juggling their existing series around rather than creating a truly new "package".

VW Cup has also been announced as a part-time support. They are doing 4x British GT rounds, 3x TCR rounds, and one other event at Brands (Deutschefest?)

I guess the strength of any UK series in terms of people attending trackside will be the price of the tickets. What are the estimates for ticket prices? 20?

Not sure ticket prices are a relevant indicator tbh. Ticket revenue goes to the circuits not the clubs, so the clubs dont market meetings and the circuits dont bother outside BTCC or BSB it seems.

Club meetings were 20 for the weekend at MSV circuits this year. British GT was 25 for the weekend. I expect TCR tickets will be the same as any other club meeting.

I'm definately going to be attending some rounds providing the package is good.

The support package will be pretty good! Already confirmed for the whole season are the Mazda MX5 Supercup & Formula Ford.

But now also (during some meetings) VW Racing Cup & Civic Cup.

Let's hope the TCR UK get's around 20 entries, so those weekends will be pretty good!

I'm warming to this idea, it's gonna be like the NSCC of the 80s and 90s, which is good. It's certainly got some good series on the calendar too. Hopefully the series will be worth it
