TCR provides close and exciting racing while keeping the running costs under control. The TCR cars cost comparatively reasonable as there is a maximum cap of €135,000 (US$160,000) for the purchase of the car. The TCR concept maintains a long-term stability of the regulations to control production, development and running costs, ensuring a long life for the cars while it is enhancing the competition through a Balance of Performance system.
“I’m very pleased to launch the TCR Series in Korea for next year, as the interest in Touring Car racing around the world is growing and Customer Racing is become a worldwide trend,” Hongsik Jeon, the promoter of TCR Korea commented. “With the TCR Series enabling teams in Korea to use the same cars to contest national, regional and international championship, I believe that the launch of TCR Korea Series will provide a big chance for teams to develop not just locally, but internationally as well.”
“I am delighted to welcome TCR Korea into the TCR family,” WSC Asia Limited’s David Sonenscher added. “I believe that TCR Korea under the stewardship of J’s Consulting will be a strong addition to the numerous Championships that we have established across the globe and will strengthen the TCR concept and brand here in Asia. I am certain that TCR Korea will provide the close action and exciting racing that TCR has become widely known for, and with the recent launch of the Hyundai i30N TCR, the battle between domestic and International brands will provide an unrivalled attraction for Korean motorsport fans. I wish J’s all the best and we also look forward to holding joint TCR Asia and TCR Korea races in the near future.”
