ESPN and FOX Sports to exclusively televise TCR South America’s inaugural season in Brazil
Thursday March 4, 2021 | ESPN and FOX Sports channels will have the exclusivity to televise the inaugural season of TCR South America in Brazil. The competitions will be held with touring cars of different manufacturers from around the world and will have 8 events throughout 2021. The events will be televised live through the programming of the Disney Group sports stations.
Mauricio Slaviero, promoter of TCR South America in Brazil, highlighted: “We are very happy with the agreement reached with the ESPN and FOX Sports channels. It will undoubtedly give our events an international stamp, as well as a formidable exposure for the drivers and sponsors involved in TCR South America.”
The TCR concept was developed in 2014 with a technical and sports package based on cost control and competitiveness. They are front-wheel drive cars with turbocharged engines with a capacity of up to 2.0 liters.
In addition to the FIA World Tourism Cup (WTCR) and the FIA Motorsport Games held for the first time in 2019 and scheduled to take place again this season, TCR sprint events are contested in 15 national and 7 regional championships (Asia, Europe, Eastern Europe, Iberia, Scandinavia, Asia-Pacific and Baltic States). Endurance championships are also disputed.
The TCR South America will have sprint and endurance events. The list of manufacturers approved for the TCR championships is extensive, with brands such as Alfa Romeo, Audi, Cupra, Honda, Hyundai, KIA, Lada, Lynk & Co, MG, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, Subaru and Volkswagen. There are more than 900 cars approved for TCR events in the world. The sports package authorizes automakers to develop, approve and build the TCR cars available on the market, for customer teams that will prepare the cars with the technical support of the manufacturers.
