WSC announces “TCR Gen I” group for 2024

WSC Group, the rights holder of TCR, has announced a “TCR Gen I” group for 2024, enabling national championships to create a separate class for the first generation TCR models.

“We were aware of the need to create the ‘TCR Gen I’. This was a matter that has also been raised by promoters and competitors alike,” said WSC President Marcello Lotti.

“Nearly ten years since the TCR concept was launched, there are still hundreds of first-generation cars competing in the different series around the globe and we want to assure them a longer and competitive racing life.

“The establishing of the ‘TCR Gen I’ will give the promoters the option of running these models in dedicated series or in a separate class within the overall championship.”

WSC has issued a list of TEN models which will be identified as “TCR Gen I”:

Alfa Romeo Giulietta RF TCR
Audi RS 3 LMS (SEQ & DSG)
Honda Civic Type R FK2 TCR
Opel/Holden/Vauxhall Astra TCR
Peugeot 308 Racing Cup
SEAT Leon Cup Racer
Subaru WRX STi TCR
Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR (SEQ & DSG)
