The TCR Asia Series unveiled the calendar for the 2017 season that will be formed of six events between March and September.
“We’re proud to have been the first TCR regional championship and to be continuing to break new ground in Asia with a concept that has proven especially successful around the world,” WSC Asia Ltd. CEO David Sonenscher said.
The third season of the series will begin in Sepang, with a proposed two day test ahead of that first event to give teams a chance to prepare in advance of the new season.
From there the series will travel to South Korea, before two events in Thailand, the first at the Chang International Circuit before a spectacular and challenging street race in Bangsaen. The series will then move to China, with a race meeting at the new Zhejiang circuit, ahead of the final event in Shanghai.
“With the expansion of TCR around the world this year and the recent announcements about the inclusion of such iconic marques as Audi, Peugeot and Kia alongside incumbents like Volkswagen, Honda, Ford, Alfa Romeo, Opel and Seat, things for TCR are just going to continue to improve and with that, TCR Asia will become one of the fastest growing categories in the region,” Sonenscher concluded.
