TCR Germany postpones return to 2025 due to “too small field”

The TCR Germany organisation has issued a statement announcing that their planned return as a standalone championship for this season has been postponed to 2025.

The championship held its last season in 2022 and became a class within the German Spezial Tourenwagen Trophy (STT) for the 2023 season.

The organisation announced its intent to return as a standalone championship for 2024 in December last year, holding three of its six events alongside TCR Eastern Europe.

The season was supposed to start at the Red Bull Ring on May 17-19, but too few entries forced the organisation to cancel its plans, issuing the following statement today:

“We continue to consistently pursue the goal of bringing the popular TCR Germany racing series back to the race track as a championship.

“We have not yet succeeded in doing this for 2024: Difficult economic conditions for teams and drivers ultimately resulted in a too small field of participants.

“The restart of the series has therefore been postponed to 2025.”

TCR Germany was launched in 2016 and the following year saw a massive grid of 43 cars for the Oschersleben season opener.

The grids have declined since that season and 2022 saw just ten full-season entries.
