Only one confirmed for TCR UK so far, two for this.

If we're playing them off against each other, its best to compare apples with apples.

If you're counting Lewis Kent as the confirmed one for TCR UK, then don't, as he isn't yet.

I've seen nothing other than Lewis Kent suggesting he will do tcr uk alongside another series.
Here we have a press release with 4 drivers!

Seeing as both series are able to run the same cars and are both pitched as cheaper touring car racing than BTCC, yes this is apples with apples

I think it's likely that Lines will run his Leon in it, maybe not necessarily with him beind the wheel. Carl Swift too. Darelle a Wilson may find running their Astra in TCT more appealing than TCRUK seeing as he's good mates with Stewart. That's potentially 3more TCT cars on the grid, never mind anything from the Moffats or Team HARD, Simon Belcher etc.

It's a bit of a long bow to play off a TCR series against a series that includes TCR, among others.

Rob Austin/HMS/Audi A4 NGTC
TBA/HMS/Toyota Avensis NGTC
Jamie Sturges/Zest Racecar Engineering/Seat Supacopa TCR

not sure im with you on that one, based on where we are today, if you have a TCR machine you want to race and are UK based, you have 2 choices (assuming you dont want to go abroad)

One costs significantly less and you can pitch your car against all manner of competitors in various touring car forms including teams and possibly drivers with BTCC experience

One costs a lot more and you can race Lewis Kent :-/

I just feel TCR doesnt really fit in the UK when it already had a national series which was too strong, this is at least a good series for using old BTCC cars and letting people with TCR cars use them in a series which will lets face is be cheaper to enter. Lets just see what the grid sizes are like come the first race in each series
