Hungary, Slovakia confirmed on 2020 schedule

Both Hungary and Slovakia will remain on the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup calendar for the 2020 season after dates for the two race weekends were released by series promoters Eurosport Events.

The announcement came with the news that two meetings will see the WTCR running alongside the FIA European Truck Racing championship – as was the case in Slovakia last year.

Subject to approval from the FIA Touring Car Commission – and ratification of the full calendar by the FIA World Motor Sport Council – the Hungaroring event will be held on the weekend of 24-26 April 2020 with the Slovakia Ring then hosting an event from 5-7 June.

It means the two circuits join Aragon on the calendar, with the remaining events to be released in due course.

“While we’re keeping the full provisional 2020 calendar under wraps until it has gone through the necessary approval process, we’re really pleased to confirm the alliance between Eurosport Events and [ETRC promoter] ETRA,” head of Eurosport Events Francois Ribeiro said.

“It will help to deliver two great weekends of entertainment featuring two very popular categories at two great venues, each located within close proximity of a capital city.”
