Istanbul Park event postponed

The second round of the new FIA ETCR eTouring Car Cup season this weekend has been postponed at the last minute.

The event at Istanbul Park was due to get underway on Friday but a short statement from series promoters Discover Sport Events – issued alongside promoters EMSO Sportif – revealed that the event will now not take place as planned.

The decision has been taken after ‘pre-event requirements were not fulfilled in time for the race to take place on this date’.

The event is now set to be rescheduled to a new date in November, which would make the Turkish event the season finale after the planned date in Korea in November.

Hungary will now host the next round of the year at the Hungaroring on the weekend of 10-12 June.
