Villa Real?

I'm not surprised, WTCR controlled by the same stupid management.

I guess Option 1 is a brazilian or uruguayian location, option 2 is a south korean location.

US ronnd doeasn't have too much sense. No US team, no US drivers, these TCR models doesn't really rated on the US market.

Marakesh is OK, it'snot far from Europe.

Zuhai will have more sense instead of Ningbo.

But all in all I think a private based TCR series with european teams and mainly european drivers should concentrate to europe, just like the ETCC did or the DTM do. Maybe a very limited weekends outside of Europe, to become a World Cup or World Championship (Marakesh and Macau ot maybe an argetinian round))

I think you are right.

Man, I HATE street circuits.

Well, this mess of a calendar was to be expected. I hope TCR Europe gets a cool grid, then there is enough Quality-TCR to watch next year on worthy tracks.
Mee too. Imho only australians can make proper street circuits.

How much this intercontinental transportation could cost for the whole grid?

Tracks pays a huge license fee for held weekends, that is not enough for that?

The WTCC's move to adopt TCR regulations should have happened "at least two years earlier", says series veteran Tom Coronel.

I agree with Coronel, the FIA lingered on too long with TC1 rules, they should have gone with the flow

Sounds good especially given their claims about a good relationship with Audi. I reckon Comini is very likely to stay. Wonder whether Vervisch will stay.

I’d like to see a “TCR+“ rule subset. This would allow for slightly faster cars. Keep the overall bodywork the same, but have a bigger rear wing, diveplanes on the front splitter, flat bottom underbody, 70bhp more etc.

I think that’s what the WTCC should have gone with. Make their own rule set an upgrade kit for TCR.

Nope. He said that the Audi is past and the Subaru is his future

Obviously manufacturers didn't really look into a Series (TCR International) but now it's all different with the status of Word Cup and the end of Wtcc. So i think we'll see a lot of factory teams in future.

Commentating on the Comtoyou team, they raced Vervish that was officially announced as an Audi factory driver some days ago That could help the ralation with the german marque
