Provisional calendar revealed for merged TCR UK – Touring Car Trophy

The provisional calendar for the merged TCR UK series and Touring Car Trophy will see the series take place over five weekends between May and October, with an optional invitational race at Spa-Francorchamps.

It was announced last week that the 2019 TCR UK series would not take place as a standalone race series but would instead be merged into the Touring Car Trophy (TCR) being promoted by Stewart Lines and his Maximum Motorsport group.

The TCT series aims to bring together touring cars of various different specifications into one ‘Trophy’ series, with the aim being predominantly to give older-specification S2000 and NGTC touring cars a home.

TCR cars will now also run in the TCT after an agreement was reached with WSC President Marcello Lotti.

The provisional calendar will see four UK circuits hosting the series, with Donington Park getting two events.

TCR UK had planned to visit Spa-Francorchamps in June as a championship round, but the new arrangement will see the Belgian event act as an invitational, non-points scoring round in TCT.

2019 TCR provisional calendar

Rounds 1 and 2 – May 11 – Oulton Park

Rounds 3 and 4 – June 22/23 – Donington Park GP (supporting British GT)

Rounds 5 and 6 – July 6/7 – Croft

Rounds 7 and 8 – July 27/28 – Brands Hatch Indy

Rounds 9 and 10 – October 19/20 – Donington Park National
