Creventic and WSC will again partner up to promote and organize the TCR Spa 500, it was confirmed on Tuesday, with the second edition of the race set for May 1-3.

The 500-lap race has a maximum runtime of 23 hours and is exclusively open to TCR specification cars.

Its inaugural running was held in October but the event has been moved earlier in the year this time after feedback from competitors, with a start time of 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 2.

The TCR Europe DSG Endurance Series will join the field for the first two hours, while a National Touring Car Invitational class will be added to accept touring cars running at least three seconds per lap slower than the fastest TCR cars.

“The second running of the TCR Spa 500 is definitely going to establish this race as one of the peak moments of the whole Touring Car season,” said WSC chairman Marcello Lotti.

“The 500-lap format that brings back long distance racing for saloon cars at Spa-Francorchamps is alluring, as it was proved by the inaugural edition in 2019 that attracted teams and drivers from all over the world.”
