Well I didn't expect a second season but good luck to them! Pretty good calendar though I'm not sure 8 cars round Spa will be much of a spectacle - hope they can attract more entries.

The BRSCC annual Spa trip I presume. Might encourage VW squads to invest in a TCR car. Sad to see Combe and Knockhill not return as they were arguably the best rounds this year.

They need to worry about getting the grid in double figures first

The racing wasn't that great at Castle Coombe, and Knockhill apparently nearly sent a couple of teams down the toilet.

I presume the Spa trip is a BGT double-header?

British GT Spa round is in July, so it won't be that.

Euroformula/GT Open are at Spa on 23rd June. TCR Europe supported them and the BRSCC Facebook post said TCR UK would run alongside TCR Europe at Spa so I'd presume that. Probably TBC on date as they probably shouldn't release the TCR Europe schedule for them, even 1 date.

they wouldn’t run it as a separate race. they would include the TCR UK cars as a class in the TCR europe race.

Assume they would run as a class within the TCR Europe race. Spa won't have the problem with maximum grid size.

Knockhill is too far for the budget to go due to the extra motorway stop needed for a sausage roll. So we'll replace that with Spa.

Sounds like a solid plan. What can possibly go wrong?

Well, I agree as I always feel a UK series should be in the UK, but Pyro and Westcoast who were the biggest teams in TCR UK 2018, also did selected rounds towards the end of TCR Europe 2018... so if they are serious about competing in both, having the 2 series race at the 1 event next year is probably a budget saving overall

Are Westcoast coming back? They sold their cars, plus the Backman's are doing TCR Europe with another team.

I'm worried for the series, especially with TCT on the scene next year. Way too early for a rival!

I'm guessing stewart lines is doing his own series not TCR UK so yeah in that case might be a small grid!!
