Eurosport Events Ltd. will serve as the promoter of ETCR, adding to its current portfolio as promoter of FIA WTCR.

The British company has recently signed a long-term agreement with TCR owner WSC to remain promoter of FIA WTCR, the flagship global TCR series, and taken on the upcoming all-electric ETCR platform.

Its role will “promote ETCR at a world level, with a series promoter scope similar to WTCR”.

Further details on ETCR are set to be revealed soon, including the format of its maiden season and series name for its expected debut in 2020.

Eurosport Events will also enter into discussions with the FIA to consider ETCR, with WTCR currently running under official FIA World Cup status.

Two manufacturers have committed to ETCR so far: Cupra, the series’ launch partner, and Hyundai, as initially revealed by e-racing365 last year.

The series had an official launch event in October, where the Cupra e-Racer took to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for its first public demonstration.
