TCR Middle East champion to earn Spa 500 entry
Creventic, the organiser of TCR Middle East, has announced that the winner of the 2020 title will secure a place on the grid for the second running of the TCR Spa 500.
The Dutch organising body also acts as the promoter of the Belgian endurance event, and will provide the Middle East series champion with an automatic entry to join a team in the race – a price worth more than 15,000 Euros.
“We’re very excited about this opportunity,” Creventic’s Ole Dörlemann said. “The TCR Spa 500 is an event we’re working very hard to establish at the top of every touring car driver’s bucket list on merit, and we feel this ‘wildcard’ entry is a great way to spread interest even further across Europe and the Middle East.
“In the past we’ve seen some very talented young drivers make their mark in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and if the TCR Spa 500 can help a newly-crowned champion continue their momentum, it’s win-win!”
The TCR Middle East Series’ fourth season kicks off with two 30-minute sprint races at the Dubai Autodrome on 9/10 January.
The second running of the TCR Spa 500 will take place on 1/3 May.
