The TCR concept brings together the most important automotive companies in the world
Montevideo (Uruguay), May 25, 2022 – A large part of success in sports competitions is having the support of car factories. The TCR platform made a strong commitment when it decided that the vehicles cannot have official attention but must go through a rigorous homologation to be within the concept required by the WSC to participate in any of the more than 35 TCR championships around of the world.
Born as a competition oriented towards customer racing, the TCR concept offers interesting business opportunities both for private teams and for the manufacturers of the different homologated models.
At first, the move was risky because the automakers had to accept not being a full part of the production of the vehicles, but over time more brands were added, seeing the success of the concept.
Today there are already fifteen automakers that have cars approved to participate in the TCR. The latest to join this long list is the Toyota Corolla TCR which has already passed through the WSC studios and will soon make its debut at TCR South America.
The complete squad to be part of any TCR category in the world is made up of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the Audi RS3, the CUPRA TCR, the Honda Civic in its last two generations, the Hyundai Elantra, Veloster and i30; the Kia Cee’d TCR, the Lada Vesta, the Lynk & Co 03 TCR, the Fiat Tipo, the Peugeot 308, the Opel Astra, the Renault Megane RS, the Subaru WRX and the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR.
The 2022 season of TCR South America already featured models from Alfa Romeo, Audi, CUPRA, Honda, Hyundai, Lynk & Co and Peugeot. With seven different carmakers in the Velocitta and Interlagos races, the South American tournament is today the TCR championship with the most brands involved.
