A new promoter for TCR Benelux
RACB Sport and KNAF, the Sporting Authorities of Belgium and Netherlands, have appointed a new promoter for the TCR Benelux series that will kick off at Zandvoort on May 20 and 21.
“Some time was needed to put together all the pieces of the jigsaw, but eventually we made it!” explained Xavier Schène, General Director of RACB Sport. “It was important to preserve the TCR Benelux brand and to lay new foundations for its future. The new promoter, Cédric Hennau, arrived with his enthusiasm, motivations and ideas.”
Hennau is a familiar face in automobile sport, having worked for Team WRT and the organisation of different events like the WEC 6 Hours of Spa. “First of all I wish to thank RACB Sport and KNAF for this proof of confidence. This is a new challenge, but I know I can rely on the support from ICE, the company managed by Renaud Jeanfils who will be the ideal consultant, especially for coordination. My goal is to work on a long term, step by step,” he said.
The 2018 TCR Benelux will be run over five events, together with the TCR Europe Series. All the drivers who will take part in the events will be eligible to score points for the TCR Benelux as well.
“However, for claiming the TCR Benelux title a driver must either be of Belgian, Dutch or Luxembourgeois nationality, or run for a Benelux-based team,” clarified Hennau.
