    The Argentinean TC 2000 Championship has unveiled the entry list for this year's Super TC 2000 class one week ahead of the season opener at Cordoba, with the launch of the new era with cars powered by Radical V8 engines.

    The series will run cars in two classes this year, with Super TC 2000 the primary class featuring cars running with the Radical engine, and TC 2000 targeted towards lower budget teams which will run with the Berta-built Ford 2.2 engine which has been used since 2009.

    The manufacturer entries of Ford and Fiat have withdrawn, leaving Pro Racing and the PSG16 Team as independent entries fielding cars for Fabían Yannantuoni, Cacá Bueno and José María López.

    The team which ran Honda in previous seasons now runs the four-car Renault LoJack Team, whilst Sportteam, which ran the two non-works Renault cars last year now runs the Honda Petrobras team.

    Renault will field Leonel Pernía, Guillermo Ortelli, Mariano Altuna and Emiliano Spataro, whilst Honda will run just two cars for Ricardo Risatti and Gabriel Ponce de León.

    Toyota Team Argentina are the only team to field a completely unchanged line-up this year, with champion Matías Rossi returning alongside Mariano Werner, Ignacio Char and Bernard Llaver.

    Peugeot Cobra Team will run Facundo Ardusso and Matias Muños Marchesi as well as former Honda driver Néstor Girolami.

    Chevrolet, now with title sponsorship from YPF which previously backed the Ford team, will run just Cruzes again for Agustín Canapino and Christian Ledesma, whilst Daniel Belli will run an independent Cruze for Lanus Motorsport.
