Russia’s National Sporting Authority, RAF, was the latest federation to announce it will embrace the TCR concept from 2015.
Starting from this year, the TCR Russian Championship will run as a promotional category within the well-established Russian Circuit Racing Series, with a full season of competition in 2016.
Oleg Petrikov, promoter of the RCRS explained: “One of our teams has already purchased some cars to compete in the TCR category. This year they will participate in the Touring class, competing with the S2000 cars; the RAF has determined a balance of performance for both types of vehicles. From 2016 the TCR Russian Championship will be a separate class in the Russian Circuit Racing Series.”
Further announcements regarding the new TCR Russian series will be made in due course, including teams, cars and the 2015 calendar.
