The 2023 TCR WORLD TOUR will race twice in Latin America, joining the TCR South America championship in back-to-back events in Uruguay and Argentina.
The Autódromo Víctor Borrat Fabini in El Pinar, Uruguay, will receive both series in the weekend from 18th to 20th August; a week later the teams will race again in San Luis in Argentina.
These two events add to the five that have been previously announced at Portimão, Spa-Francorchamps, Vallelunga, Hungaroring and Bathurst.
Venues and dates of the remaining two rounds will be announced soon.
Marcello Lotti, President of WSC said: “I’m delighted that we have finalised deals for TCR WORLD TOUR’s South American events, and we wish to thank the promoter of TCR South America, AUVO in Uruguay and the Government of the province of San Luis for their support. We strongly wanted to bring the TCR WORLD TOUR there, because touring car competition is hugely popular in the region, and also because TCR South America during its first two seasons has established itself as one of the most competitive TCR series worldwide.”
Federico Punteri, President of TCR South America said: "We are very happy to announce with WSC Group, the two TCR WORLD TOUR events in our region. We are proud to bring the best international racing to Uruguay and Argentina in 2023 once again. This is a clear sign of the global support that TCR has, and that the concept of this motorsport series continues to grow. It will be a pleasure to have the best touring car drivers sharing the track with our TCR South America field. We have worked very hard with all parties involved to finalise this and would like to especially thank AUVO in Uruguay, and its President Julio Maglione, and the Government of the Province of San Luis for the trust placed in bringing the best touring car racing of the world to race in our region together with TCR South America. The TCR WORLD TOUR event will be the only international car race event that Argentina will have this season."
