The full revised calendar for the 2020 TCR Europe series has been confirmed, with a race added at Circuit Paul Ricard in France to kick off the season on 21 – 23 August.

The provisional draft had been released on 11 May, confirming the dates for the events at Zolder, Monza, Barcelona and Spa-Francorchamps, whilst also saying that the season would conclude at Jarama in Spain.

Now the venue for the sixth event, the season opener, has been revealed to be at Le Castellet in the south of France.

Thus the season will run from late August through to the beginning of November, with the calendar being heavily revised due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe.

“We had the opportunity to recover the event at Paul Ricard in August and we jumped on it, because this meant an earlier start and finish to the season,” explained promoter Paulo Ferreira.

“I think that we have done the best we could have, considering the delays and restrictions imposed by the situation.

“We wish to thank all our competitors for their patience, plus the circuits and the promoters of the other series for their proactive cooperation.”
