M-Sport was set to develop and build new Focus TCR, but at this moment there are no money for developing that car.

With TCR racing in US, can we expect something from Ford USA?

Considering the fact that Ford are dropping all their cars in the USA in favour of crossovers i doubt it

And also we have to consider a fact that Ford seems a bit not interested in any non-American motorsport programmes. Okay, now they officially return to Supercars bit their involvement isn't as high as in the past probably. But they pulled out of World Rallycross and due to lack of big enough involvement they let Sebastien Ogier go to Citroen in WRC. So any Ford's involvement in TCR shouldn't be the case.

I believe the Focus is no longer homologated, which suggests the door is wide open for someone else to take it on.

It's different. In TCR you can build and then sell the cars, you have not to run a team.

The problem with Ford is that they have no interest in touring car and rally. Their activity is very restricted, obviously they got some glory with the Ford GT in Le Mans but it seems that also this programme is going to end

For private reasons and in view of the changed structures at Opel Kissling Motorsport will retire after 41 years from the active motorsport business. After 20 won championships and more than 600 individual successes with Opel vehicles from Kissling, we say goodbye to the motorsport stage.

A big thank you to our customers, partners, fans, friends and of course every single employee without whom this success story would never have been possible. The current projects such as Astra TCRs are continued by experienced partners. In order to keep the Kissling Motorsport history a little in our memory we will scour our historical photo material and post one or the other great photo on our Facebook-page.

Goodbye

Helmut and Stefan Kissling

The TCR project is continued by others but still sad to see Kissling close doors.

I guess it's hard to run a manufacturer-blessed motorsport program, when the manufacturer itself is still feeling the effects of a buy-out.

Hopefully Lubner can get a few more cars on track than Kissling did.

WTCR??? Peugeot/Citroen already run in WTCR (under guess what Peugeot) but VW group have 3 manufacturers. However, a lack of Opel backing could hold this back.

There needs to be incentive to run them.

They haven't really been that competitive outside of TCR Germany, and even then, it was only HP International that could get speed out of them.

Opel doesn't do F1, WRC, WRX, GT3, GT4, or DTM, and will leave TCR. Pathetic.

Opel's involvement in TCR is the same as it's been for the past few years. Lubner has just taken over as the approved TCR constructor from Kissling. Nothing more.
