12H SPA 2019
19-20 April 2019
TCR SPA 500 Summary RegulationsThe first ever endurance race reserved for TCR cars only will take place on 3-6 October 2019 with the aim of reviving the tradition of Touring Car endurance races at the legendary circuit of Spa-Francorchamps. The planned distance for the race is 500 laps of the 7 km circuit. The event is a joint operation between WSC that holds the rights to the TCR technical regulations and Dutch agency CREVENTIC that will be acting as the promoter and organizer, adding the race to its vast portfolio of endurance races all over the world.
Extensive discussions with representatives of the brands that are involved in TCR competition made it clear that there was a need for a flagship, high-profile endurance race to showcase the category and make the connection with the production models the racing cars are stemmed from. Extending the already existing co-operation between WSC and CREVENTIC, an agreement was made to stage such a race. It didn’t take long to choose the iconic Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps as the venue.
The event will be open to TCR cars only, with plenty of opportunities for the manufacturers to exploit it in terms of promotion. A categorization with Pro, Semi-Pro and Amateur drivers will be in place, with the plan to have Pro, Pro-Am and perhaps Am-teams competing in separate classifications.
