After the recent exciting announcement that the TCR UK Championship will be launching next season, the championship promoters have released their first bulletin providing initial information for interested teams and parties who are looking to participate in 2018. The bulletin from TCR reads as follows: "The main TCR International Series website is tcr-series.com – under the drop-down menu ‘Inside TCR’ you will find both the Technical Regulations and Sporting Regulations for the International Series. We will follow the Technical Regulations in their entirety, so that cars used in the TCR UK series will also be eligible for other TCR championships around the world. We also plan to use the same Sporting Regulations in the UK. You will also find a ‘Marketplace’ section on the International Series’ website. Teams are encouraged to advertise used cars etc in this area, so you can get a good idea of what cars are available and typical prices. Should you be interested in buying new cars, please contact us and we can put you in touch with the relevant car manufacturer. As we outlined in our initial press release, we plan to have six or seven race meetings in 2018 with two sprint races during each weekend. All races will be live streamed. Our Facebook page is already live. Feel free to ‘like’ and share the page to your contacts. Other social media channels will be opened up in due course. Please note our new email address, which should be used to contact us from now on – firstname.lastname@example.org" The number of enquiries has already been highly impressive with many teams, drivers and suppliers already making contact with TCR UK's promoters expressing interest in competing in the new championship next year.

Always a firm favourite with local fans and drivers, Castle Combe in Wiltshire plays host to the BRSCC this weekend for two days of sensational club motorsport action.

Snetterton is becoming a popular place for us this year as already our 3rd visit of 2017 has come around in quick succession after our last meeting last month. There’s an excellent mix of sports car and saloon car racing set to storm the 300 circuit, with all championships in attendance now past the half way stage and beginning the journey towards crowning a champion. Getting a good result here could make a big difference come the finals weekend in October.
