WSC establishes the ‘TCR Gen I’ group for the previous models

WSC Group announced the establishing of the ‘TCR Gen I’ group that includes the first-generation TCR-certified cars. The following models will be identified as ‘TCR Gen I’.

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

All cars must be in compliance with the TCR Technical Form and any relevant Extensions issued before 31 December 2017. The Extensions issued afterwards will automatically class the model as a current TCR.

The Balance of Performance for these models will be fixed by WSC via dedicated TCR Technical Bulletins.

WSC President Marcello Lotti explained: “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. 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.”
