WSC Technology Ltd. has revealed the key technical regulations of its E TCR initiative which was announced last week.

E TCR has been created by WSC, the organizer behind the highly successful TCR platform, was unveiled on Friday alongside the launch of SEAT’s Cupra e-Racer (pictured), an all-electric touring car.

The class will be open to four or five-door production touring cars powered by an electric motor producing 300 kW of continuous power and 500 kW of maximum power at 12,000 rpm.

Cars will be rear-wheel-drive and have a battery capacity of 65 kWh.

WSC Technology will produce an E TCR-branded power unit including motor, gearbox and inverters, together with the battery pack, as a common package.

It will be fitted into the chassis of various cars competing in the series.

“First of all, we wish to thank SEAT for embracing the concept and building the CUPRA e-Racer, which is the first car totally in compliance with the E TCR Technical Regulations,” said WSC Group President Marcello Lotti.

“Why E TCR? Because our Group feels to have a sense of responsibility towards the whole Touring Car racing scene and so consequently could not ignore the trends of developing new technologies.

“We will be working on the same technical principles that made TCR so successful, with the aim of creating a platform for this new configuration.”

WSC plans to hold “promotional and media events” this year before a series is launched.
