The Italian round of the 2016 TCR International Series will take place in two weeks at Imola, on May 22.
The timetable of the event will be concentrated in one day only, on the Sunday, with the aim to make the most out of the promotion and gather as much public as possible during what will be a mid spring weekend.
TCR promoter Marcello Lotti explained: “We are grateful to the Municipality of Imola and Formula Imola for offering us this opportunity to bring an international touring car series back to this glorious and demanding racetrack. And we are currently meeting with a lot of interest from Italian teams and drivers that want to join for the event.”
Imola’s circuit, named after Enzo and Dino Ferrari, was built in 1952, along the Santerno river; it underwent a complete reconstruction in 1979 and hosted both the Italian and San Marino F1 Grands Prix between 1980 and 2006. The racetrack was further modified and its facilities rebuilt in 2010.
The lap distance is 4.5 kilometres; TCR competitors will complete 14 of those laps in each race.
