Andy Priaulx joins Lynk & Co Cyan Racing

Three-time World Champion Andy Priaulx will return to Touring Car competition in 2019. The Guernseyman has joined Lynk & Co Cyan Racing for WTCR and will drive one of Cyan Racing's Lynk & Co 03 TCR race cars alongside already confirmed drivers Yvan Muller and Thed Björk.
"I'm delighted to become a Lynk & Co Cyan Racing driver and I have no doubt that we are in a strong position to fight for the overall title already in our first year," said Priaulx. "We have a tough job ahead of us, the competition is as tough as it has ever been in the WTCR. But I have followed Cyan Racing's process over the years and it was an easy decision for me to join them ahead of 2019."

Priaulx claimed three straight World Touring Car Titles in the 2005, 2006 and 2007 and has most recently raced in GT, claiming the bronze medal of the 2017 FIA GT World Endurance Championship.

"Andy is a true touring car legend and his track record speaks for itself. His mix of experience and raw speed will be vital to us. We are glad to have him onboard for the 2019 WTCR season that looks to become one of the toughest ever," said Christian Dahl, CEO of Cyan Racing.

The FIA WMSC approved the 2019 calendar


The FIA World Motor Sports Council has approved the calendar for the 2019 WTCR.
The series will be run over ten events, kicking off on the first weekend of April at Marrakech and ending at Sepang in a date yet to be announced, in the first half of December.
Except for the event in Malaysia, all the venues were already part of the 2018 calendar: Hungaroring, Slovakiaring, Zandvoort, Nürburgring and Vila Real in Europe, Ningbo, Suzuka and Macau in Asia.
The Sporting Regulations have been amended, introducing the allocation of points for the first Qualifying (5-4-3-2-1) and a new point scale for the top-15 drivers in each race (25-20-16-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1).
The maximum number of entries has been fixed at 32, while race-by-race entrants will not be eligible to score points.

TCR Russia
The 2019 calendar was revealed

SMP, promoter of the Russian Circuit Racing Series has unveiled the 2019 calendar for TCR Russia that will be run on seven race meetings once again.
The season will begin as usual at Fort Grozny in the second half of April, while Sochi Autodrom will host the season’s finale on the first weekend of September.
The championship will visit the ADM Raceway for the first time. The circuit, that is located 16 kilometres East of Moscow, had already been listed for hosting an event in 2018; however it was replaced by a second trip to Fort Grozny because its reconstruction was not finished.
The ADM Raceway has been completely rebuilt and was given an FIA Grade 4 homologation.

20/21 April: Fort Grozny
18/19 May: NRing, Nizhniy Novgorod

TC America
DSG Cup confirmed for 2019

SRO Motorsports America, the producers of the TC America series, announces the TCR DSG Cup within the overall TCR category.
“When we reviewed all the data from 2018, we realized we needed to do something to support our teams who are racing DSG transmission cars,” said Jim Jordan, TC America class manager. “The cars are fantastic to race and drive, however at times it did not appear to be a level playing field. We spent most of the off season working with all stakeholders to reach this agreement. I am proud of the work done by Marcus Haselgrove and the rest of the TCR technical working group both in the US and Europe on this solution.”
The DSG Cup will feature it’s own podium, scoring, and points structure. At the end of the season, a Champion will be crowned.
