ADAC will take over as promoter of the TCR Germany championship in 2020 from TCR Germany GmbH, a company headed by Franz Engstler, and has released a preliminary 2020 calendar.
“We are pleased with the strong development of TCR Germany over the past four years. We have now made the strategic decision to hand over the role as promoter to ADAC, opening up new opportunities to expand and strengthen the series,” said Franz Engstler, head of TCR Germany GmbH and owner of Engstler Motorsport.
ADAC will handle cooperation with the German Motorsport Federation (DMSB) and the global TCR rights holder WSC, while TCR Germany GmbH will provide organisational support.
“Together with the team around Franz Engstler, we have established an attractive platform for touring car racing in Germany over the past four years. We will restructure and further develop the ADAC TCR Germany in cooperation with the TCR Germany GmbH in a new constellation,” said ADAC Sports president Hermann Tomczyk.
