Chapter Eurosport Events Francois Ribeiro said about why it was decided to limit the starting grid in the new series of WTCR to 26 seats.
Even before the official confirmation regarding the Association of World Touring and International TCR series some pilots admired the prospect of 30 equal to the speed of the cars in the peloton. Given that the German series TCR was even 40 cars on the grid, a limit of 26 places caused some surprise.
Official: In 2018 on the basis of the WTCC and TCR will be created for the world Cup WTCR
“For us the important thing is quality, not quantity, said Ribeiro, in an interview TouringCar Times. Sometimes at the start of the world series, TCR had a lot of cars that led to accidents, red flags and questions about the qualifications of the participants. In our opinion, WTCR is not necessary. It is better to do strong participants for the next two years, and not to put in the series all in a row.
