Creative approach gets TCR Asia underway this coming weekend
2020 TCR Asia Series 7 August 2020
WSC Asia the Promoter of the TCR Asia Series have today announced a novel to approach to getting the 2020 Season underway.
Facing the severe travel restrictions that remain in place throughout the Asian Region in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the TCR Asia Series will be divided into TCR Asia North and TCR Asia South.
TCR Asia North will begin with two events at the Zhuzhou International Circuit in China, being held over the next two weekends, with the first event being a double header, and will run in conjunction with TCR China.
This will be followed by the highly prestigious Macau Grand Prix whilst a Grand final double header event will be held at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia in December.
Meanwhile TCR Asia South will begin at the Sepang Circuit in October and will then proceed to the Buriram Circuit in Thailand at the start of November and will then combine with TCR Asia North for the final two events in Macau and Malaysia.
Points will be scored separately for each North and South respectively with a separate TCR Asia Title awarded for the combined results of the Macau and the Grand Final event in Malaysia.
"Throughout the last few months our focus has been to get back to racing as soon as possible and to try to deliver a safe and exciting Championship. Despite Asia having some of the lowest infection rates in the World, International travel is still some way off. With this new approach we are able to deliver an exciting and innovative Calendar that brings TCR Asia to the Region in 2020.
"We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops over the coming weeks and remain flexible but I am happy that the 2020 TCR Asia Season will finally get underway this coming weekend," said David Sonenscher CEO of WSC Asia Ltd.
