WSC agrees cooperation with Maximum Motorsport for running 2019 TCR UK

WSC Ltd has agreed a deal with Maximum Motorsport to cooperate on the running of the 2019 TCR UK Championship, which will see the introduction of the Touring Car Trophy series for the coming season.

TCR UK competitors will receive a dedicated classification for the TCR UK title within the Touring Car Trophy (TCT) series. Four drivers had already confirmed their participation into TCR UK this year so far.

The announcement means that a revised calendar will be issued featuring new race dates incorporating the TCR UK class.

David Sonenscher will continue to oversee WSC’s involvement, commenting: “We are very pleased with this agreement.

“When I came on board, my role was to find the best way forward for TCR in the UK and, after looking at the situation and numerous discussions, I felt that a cooperation with Stewart Lines and his organisation, who have built themselves a solid reputation, would be the best solution.

“This collaboration will help to provide a solid base to establish TCR in the UK for good.”

Stewart Lines, who himself raced in TCR UK last year, had put together a new Touring Car Trophy during the winter for the coming season, featuring a variety of different touring car technical specifications, including S2000, NGTC and TCR.

Following negotiations with WSC President Marcello Lotti, Lines has been able to publicly reveal the news of the cooperation.

“This is an important development for anybody who wants to race a TCR car in the UK,” said Lines, who runs Maximum Motorsport. “The TCR concept is a massive success worldwide and we plan to replicate this in the UK.”

Peter Daly, the Chairman of the British Racing & Sports Car Club, the permit holders for the TCR UK Championship, is looking forward to working with Lines in 2019.

“We believe strongly in the long-term success of the TCR project and we see this cooperation as a great opportunity for the Championship to flourish,” added Daly. “We already have a good working relationship with Maximum Motorsport so we look forward to working with them this season”.
