WSC Group, the rights holders for TCR, has launched its new concept, the TCR WORLD RANKING for drivers. The purpose of the TCR WORLD RANKING is to highlight the achievements of all drivers who race TCR specification cars across the world in TCR-sanctioned events.
How the TCR WORLD RANKING works
Starting from January 1st, 2021, the calculation takes into account the race results of each driver, which are weighted by two coefficients; the series in which they took part, as well as the size of the field.
The series weighting is divided into five categories: international, regional, national, endurance, and other sprint races. The second coefficient considers the number of cars taking part at each race meeting, with events featuring more than 20 cars scoring the most.
The last 20 race results are taken into account; and drivers who haven’t been racing for more than 30 weeks will start to have their oldest results removed in time until they return to competition.
With just two years of results, the TCR World Ranking holds now the scores of 928 drivers, with about 320 race results per year contributing to the calculation.
The rankings will be updated at midnight (Central European Time) each Wednesday.
“With so many championships and so many drivers all racing in TCR, it made absolute sense to launch the TCR World Ranking. This is inspired by other popular sports, but one that hasn’t been used in motorsport until now,” said WSC Group president Marcello Lotti.
“With over 1,100 cars built to its technical regulations, TCR is one of the most successful motorsport concepts ever, and the scale and level of competition in TCR is immense – so I conceived the TCR World Ranking as a way to highlight the performances of the great talent we see competing in TCR machinery.”
TCR Eastern Europe champion Bartosz Groszek currently holds 11th position, vice-champion Petr Semerád is 97th.
