They could, but I doubt they will.
We will see the next years entry list soon - I don't know when - it will tell us a lot.

Ribeiro said that WTCC will introduce TCR regulations for next year and that TCR international Series will fold. Also FIA and Eurosport will stay in charge, but no info who will lead them Ribeiro or Lotti.

I think if Eurosport get TCR International then TCR Europe will consume ETCC.
Lotti already announced a six-round TCR Trophy Europe. I guess it will inherit the TCR International entries and TV rights.

Yeah i think that manufacturers want to see their cars in good hands... it's also to promote the models

More info about WTCR
The series will run for at least two years, before eventual introduction of Class 1
Also there will be three races in weekend like in BTCC.

So they're again thinking on a move to Class One, a regulation merge between a Super GT (Super Grand Touring) and DTM whoose cars in reality are not even close to a touring car to be honest

I have a great respect for both series (Super GT and DTM), but from a touring car point of view makes really no sense. Then I'm really curious about how they're figuring out this Class one/World Touring Car Championship. Not so many time ago we had the ITCC and we know how it failed. From my point of view, it makes sense that DTM and Super GT remain both national championships with some events or finale to be shared together.

That's my opinion. TCR is the best thing after the first S2000 cars with no discredit for the Gold Era of the Super Touring cars

what car makers would wish to enter a super expensive class 1 touring car, as the past shows such championships always collapse pretty quickly
