Daniel Lloyd has been appointed as the driver responsible for carrying out the Balance of Performance [BoP] testing in Valencia next week, where he will take to the wheel of cars from eleven different brands.
Looyd joined the TCR International Series from the fifth round onwards in 2017, where he raced a SEAT León TCR for Craft-Bamboo Racing.
The Brit will now get a chance to drive all of the TCR cars next week (12 – 14 February) when he carries out BoP testing in Valencia at the wheel of Alfa Romeo, Audi, Honda, Hyundai, KIA, LADA, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, SEAT and Volkswagen cars.
As well as looking at on-track testing, the BoP testing programme will also include dyno checks.
“I’m looking forward to working with TCR to assist them in creating the BoP parameters for the 2018 season,” said the 25-year-old.
“I really enjoyed my time in the TCR International Series last year. I have a lot of experience with different FWD cars to help me contribute. Is a lot of trust placed in me by TCR and the brands involved but I’m certainly looking forward to it.”
The results of the BoP test will be revealed in mid-March and will dicatate the BoP for all worldwide TCR series, including the new FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) which begins in early April. TCR staff will work alongside their FIA colleagues as a result.
