    I'm a big fan of Stefano Comini, a truly free spirit in motorsport, and a simracer too.
    Go Stefano! :D

    This (TCR) is a series run by former WTCC boss Marcello Lotti, and was created in a bid to become a lower cost, more assessable rival than the WTCC. So basically not for manufacturer teams....

    The TCR regs are different to the WTCC TC1 regulations and provide a lower cost barrier for entry, leading to many different manufacturers building cars and selling them to customer teams across the world. The series regs have been adopted by lots of national series (Asia, Belgium, Italy, Scandinavia, Germany, Portugal, Russia, Spain plus a load of others) and many of the top touring car drivers are making a move across.

    The series basically was setup after looking at what the WTCC are doing wrong, and doing it right!

    Third year for these regs and already it's taking off, for my money this will be the new world standard in the next couple of years..
