Brazil to launch national TCR series

Brazil will become the latest country to run a national championship for TCR cars following the announcement of a new series being planned for 2023.

The decision to create TCR Brazil comes on the back of the successful launch of TCR South America last year, which included a number of races on Brazilian soil.

A minimum of six events will be part of the calendar for the series, which will be the first for front-wheel drive touring cars in the country since 2018.

“We are delighted to see that the TCR category continues to expand seven years after its launch,” WSC president Marcello Lotti said. “In 2021, the maiden season of TCR South America has opened a new and important market, giving teams and drivers from the whole region the opportunity to experience the thrill of TCR competition.

“We are very pleased that the enthusiastic participation of many Brazilian competitors in TCR South America is now leading to the birth of TCR Brazil.”
