“TCR is growing quickly, with no less than 16 national and regional series announced for 2016, on top of the TCR International series, and an ever-increasing number of cars from various manufacturers becoming available,” said Willems. “We are delighted for having reached an agreement with WSC to use the TCR Series’ regulations and BOP.”

Like the TCR International Series, the 24H Series was also in its inaugural season in 2015. WSC CEO Marcello Lotti adds that he is pleased to be able to further promote TCR cars in a diverse range of championships.

“We are pleased and proud for the deal with CREVENTIC that makes the TCR cars eligible for the 24H Series, which is growing quickly after a successful maiden season,” added Lotti. “TCR cars have already proven to be exciting to drive in sprint races, but they are also extremely reliable and may be run in long distance races with a reasonable budget, giving more opportunities to teams and drivers to enjoy different experiences.

“We are looking forward to a long standing and successful cooperation between TCR and the 24H Series.”

The expansion of TCR regulations into endurance racing has been made possible thanks to the 100-litre fuel tank capacity which has been written into the TCR regulations.
