Entries open at reduced cost for season two of TCR UK

Organisers of the TCR UK championship have revealed that entries for the 2019 season have now been opened, with a ‘significantly reduced entry fee’ compared to year one.

The decision to reduce the entry fee is one of a number of initiatives that have been confirmed, in addition to earlier changes to qualifying and race formats, which include the introduction of a new class structure.

As well as the return of the DSG Trophy, which only featured in the early rounds of 2018 before all cars switched to non-DSG gearboxes, the 2019 season will also see the introduction of the TCR UK Cup.

That class will be aimed towards drivers competing in the ‘true amateur spirit’ of racing.

“Together with the announcements we made last week about changes to the Qualifying and Race formats, the news about the lowering of entry fees and the addition of the TCR UK Cup are a direct result of the feedback we received from the teams at the end of our first year,” Chief Operating Officer of TCR UK, David Sonenscher, said.

“I’ve had really positive reaction in my discussions with potential teams and drivers and so I’m pleased that we’re confirming both as we open entries for the 2019 season.”
