TCR New Zealand - MSNZ awards the series with the NZTCC title

19.02.2020: Touring car racing in New Zealand enters a new era, as the New Zealand Touring Car Championship will be awarded to TCR NZ from the 2020/21 season.

Touring car racing in New Zealand enters a new era, as the New Zealand Touring Car Championship will be awarded to TCR NZ from the 2020/21 season.


 
MotorSport New Zealand announced in April 2019 the agreement with WSC Ltd, the global rights holders of TCR, to introduce a national TCR series in New Zealand in 2020. In May 2019 they awarded the contract for the commercial and promotional rights of the new series to ANZ Motorsport Group, a new subsidiary company of the Australian Racing Group, which promotes the TCR Australia Series.



MotorSport New Zealand has now confirmed that the championship title status of the BNT V8 Championship will not be renewed and that TCR New Zealand will be awarded with the title instead.



Elton Goonan, Competitions Manager for MotorSport NZ said:
“Touring car racing is changing across the world and we believe TCR better reflects what local vehicle distributors are selling, which increases the potential for support from them.




Confirming that TCR NZ will compete for the New Zealand Touring Car Championship title is a big piece of the puzzle complete for us. It adds another incentive for teams and drivers to join what is a huge success worldwide and gives drivers a recognised platform to compete on. We’re incredibly excited to see TCR get underway in New Zealand and can’t wait to share further details in the near future.”



- Fabio Ravaioli
