Starting in 2018 Adria International Raceway will launch the TCR Academy, a school where drivers of any age can improve or learn race craft required within the touring car discipline. The TCR Academy will use its fleet of 50 TCR machines (VW, Audi and SEAT) for the instruction.
At the same time the TCR Academy Endurance Series will also be launched where drivers will be able to hop into TCR machinery for two 1-hour races on Saturday and a 4-hour race on Sunday. The series will award total prize money of over $700,000. The provisional calendar is as follows:
31 March/01 April – 6 Hours of the Slovakiaring (Slovakia)
TBA May – 6 Hours of the Hungaroring (Hungary)
02/03 June – 6 Hours of Adria (Italy)
04/05 August – 6 Hours of the Salzburgring (Austria)
03/04 September – 6 Hours of Most (Czech Republic)
06/07 October – 6 Hours of Brno (Czech Republic)
Further details on both projects will be communicated shortly.
