STCC TCR Scandinavia 2017

So, lets get 2017 cracking! We are many who are looking forward to what TCR in STCC can bring. There have already been lots of speculation.

We know Volvo are out, they wont have a TCR car ready for 2017, question is will they ever build a TCR car?

What we know already:

PWR Racing SEAT Dealer Team - 3 cars, presumably for Kristoffersson, Haglöf and one more.
Lestrup Racing Team - VW Golf for unnamed driver.
West Coast Racing - Runs JAS Honda in TCR International, now without the Volvo contract in STCC bets are they will run a few Hondas here instead.
MAGP - Mattias Andersson wont have Dacia support for next year but has made his intentions clear, he wants to be in STCC in 2017. Hint, he has been a longtime Alfa driver, and Alfa has a TCR car, sort of.
LMS Racing - The Finnish team currently racing in TCR Germany has expressed intentions to race in STCC, so much STCC are actually eyeing expending the calendar for a race in Finland for 2017 already.
Flash Engineering - Back in STCC with Nissan, but do Nissan have a TCR car?
Brovallen Design - Switched from KIA to Ford this year for the reason Ford already had an TCR car, but now KIA also have one?

But the 1 million dollar question right now seem to be, who has got their hand on the brand new Audi RS3 TCR? Will KMS return with Audi?

A lot of stuff happening right now and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all the teams working on it make it all the way.

Sorry I can't tell you more but what I know is either third hand rumors or confidential info.

By my count we are up to about 9 cars as good as ordered already. I'll let you speculate who did what

Thanks for the info!

I hope that an STCC team produces their own TCR car, that would be especially cool.

I don't know how lenient the Swedish ASN is with national homologations, but other than that I wouldn't be too hopeful. Teams that want to have their car homologated internationally need to be able to supply customers internationally and I don't know if any Swedish teams would want to go through that kind of hassle.

Yes, very true, I just had dreams of the Sturesson 308 or the Volvo C30.

KMS Audis, Brovallen Mercedes, OTS Opel Astra. STCC sure did bring some great cars in min -00's, too bad not all of them where quick.

Indeed, they were very nice to see!

I remember also a Merc fighting valiantly in the DTC around Padborg once too, but my memory fails me.

My favorite was always the Chrysler!

I don't think it's necessarily all bad that there's no Volvo next season, I don't think it's ever healthy for a series to be to dependent on a single entry.

but it wasn't build for STCC, it was build and raced initially for the short lived North American Touring Car championship (lasted just for 1996-1997) after one of the cars was brought and raced as works car in STCC

Why?

Why did STCC AB choose a franchise agreement with promotor World Sporting Consulting, LTD (WSC)? What is the cost for this?
Would it be better to choose FIA technical regulation TCN2 for STCC? FIA rules allow both FWD and RWD cars. FIA TCN2 rules is the same as TCR by WSC but only allow FWD cars.
