TCR Germany entry list grows to 44 cars

The ADAC TCR Germany Series entry list has continued to grow, with Finn Juuso-Matti Pajuranta joining reigning champion Josh Files as a late addition to the bulging grid.

The formal entry list was published last month with 42 entries, but cars have continued to be added just weeks before the start of the season due to popular demand.

Pajuranta will join the field at the wheel of a Volkswagen Golf GTi TCR, which has been entered by the Positionemotorsport outfit.

The 21-year-old has previously raced in The Fiat Abarth Trophy in Italy in 2015 and 2016.

ADAC Sport President Hermann Tomczyk reiterated that the huge grid shows that the organisation have hit on a winning formula with TCR in Germany.

“The development of ADAC TCR Germany shows that we have set the right concept,” said Tomczyk. “The enormous success for the second season with a field of the maximum size of 44 vehicles does personally surprise us.

“I am already looking forward to the first races in Oschersleben at the end of the month.”

Promoter Franz Engstler adds that the success of the championship is down to having the right deals in place, in particular with regard to the way the championship fits in with the ADAC GT Masters and the associated television deal.

“We have developed the series over the past year, which was already set on the right course, which is proven by the great interest of the participants,” added Engstler. “The platform of the ADAC GT Masters and also the TV transmissions at SPORT1 offer optimal conditions for the further development of the series.”

As reported by TouringCars.Net earlier in the month, Dominik Fugel will not participate in the championship this year due to injury, and his entry has been withdrawn. A replacement driver has yet to be announced.

TCR Germany begins at Oschersleben on the 28th to 30th April.
