The TCR Europe SIM Racing’s fourth event gets underway today at 19:00 (Central European Summer Time) on the virtual circuit of Le Castellet.
With four race victories out of the first six races, Dániel Nagy (BRC Racing Team Hyundai i30 N) defends a solid lead in the standings, although his fellow Hungarian countryman Bence Boldizs (Zengő Motorsport CUPRA), the winner of the second race at the virtual Hungaroring, has managed to reduce his gap from 40 to 21 points only.
Another Hungarian, Támas Tenke (Tenke Motorsport CUPRA) is third in the standings, a further 33 points behind, while Gilles Magnus (Comtoyou Racing, Audi RS 3 LMS) has moved into fourth with a gap of 62 points from the leader.
Three drivers will miss the Le Castellet event due to business or family commitments: Gianni Morbidelli and the Bäckman siblings, Andreas and Jessica; however, two newcomers will join: Gilles Colombani (Team Clairet Sport, Peugeot 308) and Gustavo Moura (Sports & You, Peugeot 308).
Action for the 24-car field will begin with a 20-minute Qualifying forming the grid for Race 1 that will start immediately after the end of the session. Race 2 will follow back-to-back with the grid based on the results of Race 1, with the first 12-classified drivers in reversed order. Both races will be run over 10 laps.
All action will be streamed live today on TCR YouTube channel, TCR TV, TCR Facebook page, TCR Europe Facebook page, and delayed on TCR Twitch channel.
The series is realized by TCR Euro Series Ltd. in partnership with DrivingItalia.net.
