PawUloN should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
For sure there are series like that, but not on World Championship (or Cup) level and not on Eurosport...

Actually there are confirmed 4 honda, likely 4 Link and 4 Hyundai. Total 12 cars.

There are not news about Cupra (a part that Comtoyou Racing won't use Cupra in 2020 in wtcr) and about Audi.

Well once again Ribeiro showed all his talent to destroy a serie! It was not easy to repeat the "amazing" results that he got with WTCC - TC1 Cars and yet he was able to destroy WTCR series in less time than WTCC.

We can't blame all on Ribeiro this time. It is not his fault the stupidity of the Compensation Weights, and the profound dismay of the Technical Scrutineering and the amazement Stewards decisions.

It's his fault the calendar with 3 short race while he could continue on 2 race maybe each one a little bit longer.

It's his fault idiot ideas like Joker Laps.

It's his fault to say that wtcr would not allow official manufacture while at the end all manufactures hyudai, link, audi, vw, honda, cupra gave support more or less to the teams. So why he didn't do like in firsts years of wtcc? A general Driver Standing and a Privater Standing where could partecipate all drivers without a factory support plus a manufacture standing.

It's his fault how was made the calendar. 3 city circuits with high probability of crash and as consequence big costs to repair damage and 4 rounds on 10 made in Asia are absolutely too much for a world cup who pretend to be just for privaters.

It's his fault that he didn't want to race together with other tcr series.

About BOP it was a good idea at the begin then it became something ridiculous. At each round there was different weight, different power %, different ride height. It would have been more easier to give a compensation weight for the top 5 drivers in each race (40kg - 30 - 20 - 15 - 10).

That was/is the philosophy of what TCR is. The cars are still very much affordable compared to most other formulas, but the running costs at international levels are far too high for what it is hence why many young drivers preferred to move on from TCR national to more affordable seats in GT3 or in the silhouette series’ instead.

It also doesn’t help that Eurosport have done a poor job at marketing the series and that it became so difficult to follow with a lack of live races and other sports broadcasted above it, though that is a problem faced by the majority of TCR series nowadays...I do wonder what this could have become under Lotti’s direction. Though the costs were higher in the Lotti S2000 era, there’s no disputing that they were the best touring car years of this century.

Well, if the Cup goes under 18 entries this season, then it will be dead by 2021.

Not the end of the world if it means we get a bigger grid. 2 months until R1 and still only 4 entries.

Article hints at 2 or 3 car teams.

4 entries that have been publicly announced , Doesn't necessarily mean that they are the only 4 entries.

Extended entry deadline and coronavirus thrown in there as an excuse for good measure. Seems a little desperate, I wish them all the best.

I don't think the fans buy the coronavirus excuse. I just do not expect to arrive at Hungaroring and have only 16 cars.

Huff will not race in WTCR this year, a break or complete retirement?
