The other TCR races of the upcoming weekend

10.10.2018: A record field of 19 TCR cars is due to take part in the 12H Spa, fifth and final round of the 24H TCE Series Europe that takes place on Friday and Saturday. The race will start Saturday at 9

A record field of 19 TCR cars is due to take part in the 12H Spa, fifth and final round of the 24H TCE Series Europe that takes place on Friday and Saturday.

The race will start Saturday at 9:30 to finish at 21.30 and will see the final shootout for conquering the European crown between the leading Red SEAT León DSG #303 and the NKPP Racing by Bas Koeten Cupra DSG #175. The two teams are separated by just two points in the standings.

It will be an all-Dutch confrontation, with the father and son pair of Ivo and Rik Breukers sharing driving duties in the #303, while the #175 will be driven by Gijs Bessem and Harry Hilders.

 As they focus on the title, several other teams have both the ambition and the potential to win the 12-hour race. The Cupra run jointly by LMS and Bas Koeten for last year’s winning trio of Buri-Kangas-Laaksonen, the Sweden-based Letsrup Racing’s Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Bonk Motorsport Audi RS3 LMS, just to mention a few.



Compass Racing will not give any team orders to its two pairs that will fight for the TCR title in the IMSA Continental Challenge's finale at Road Atlanta.

Tom Long and Britt Casey jr. are leading the standings in the Audi #77, with a margin of just two points over Rodrigo Sales and Kuno Wittmer in the #74. The team's third car, #75 of Pierre Kleinubing and Roy Block is currently third on equal point with Lee Carpentier-Kieron O'Rourke in the eEuroparts Racing Audi #10.

“It’s a dream come true to head into the final round with all three of our TCR cars having been so competitive all year,” said Team Principal Karl Thomson. "In a situation like this, we firmly believe that there aren’t any 'team orders' with the exception of the golden rule of not taking each other out."
