Now the venue has changed to Hockenheim, together with the GT Open Series, one week later on the 24 – 26 May.

“Hockenheim represents a great addition to the list of glamorous racetracks that forms the TCR Europe series’ calendar,” said promoter Paulo Ferreira.

“TCR is very popular in Germany and we are confident that our event in Hockenheim will attract a lot of fans; we also invite some of the TCR Germany teams and drivers to join and measure themselves with their fellow colleagues of TCR Europe.”

The season opener at the Hungaroring will be held in the frame of the WTCR meeting at the same circuit, whilst the third event of 2019 will also be held with the GT Open series at Spa-Francorchamps.
