The calendar for the 2020 TCR UK series has been revealed by promoter Maximum Motorsport, which will once again see the series operating in conjunction with the Touring Car Trophy.

The series will enter into its third season overall, and its second as part of a tie-up with the Touring Car Trophy, next year.

Silverstone will host the season opener on its International circuit in April, before a near two-month gap to the second event of the year at Croft in early June.

Brands Hatch again holds a summer date two weeks’ later, before Oulton Park hosts the series in mid-July.

A first visit to Snetterton, which was originally set to host TCR UK in 2019 before a late calendar and promoter change, will take place in early August.

Thruxton also gets its first visit by TCR UK in late August, whilst the series will once again conclude at Donington Park in mid October.

Crucially, none of the dates clash with the British Touring Car Championship once again, allowing teams and drivers the chance to compete in both series.

The series will again be held in partnership with the British Racing and Sports Car Club (BRSCC) as it has been for the past two years.

The Touring Car Trophy allows cars from the BTCC, conforming to current NGTC regulations, to compete, alongside TCR machinery and older S2000-spec models.

“Our team at Maximum Motorsport have worked hard to get to this stage,” said series promoter Stewart Lines. “We aim to provide a fantastic and affordable platform to race touring cars and Volkswagen Cup cars in 2020.”
