The TCR Europe SIM Racing series will award free tyres that will be used during the real 2020 TCR Europe Series.
At the end of each TCR Europe SIM Racing event the driver who has scored the highest number of points will receive two free Yokohama tyres that will be part of the maximum allocation of tyres that can be used in the real 2020 TCR Europe Series.
The best scorer of SIM Racing’s event 1 will use his tyres in the TCR Europe Series’ event 1, and so on, until the best scorers of SIM Racing’s events 6 and 7 will both use their tyres in the TCR Europe Series’ event 6.
Should the driver who has scored the highest number of points in a SIM Racing event not compete in the real 2020 TCR Europe Series, the two free tyres will be awarded to the best classified amongst the actual competitors of the 2020 TCR Europe Series.
Series promoter Paulo Ferreira explained: “We had this idea of linking the results of the SIM Racing series to those of the actual championship to give more spice to the project. We submitted to the teams two or three different options that would have had a limited impact on the Qualifying results or the starting grid. However, they were all rejected and the teams unanimously preferred to have two free tyres amongst those that can be used during one event. We understood and accepted their position.”
