2020 TCC
Previous: 2019-2 Next: none

The 2020 IVRC Touring Car Championship season will be the 3rd IVRC TCC season. Marc Stwerka of Repsol Swinegel Racing will defend the drivers' championship, while his team Repsol Swinegel Racing will defend the teams' championship. CUPRA ist the reigning constructors' champion and as Saulius Laurinavicius is now not eligible to participate as a rookie anymore, we will see a new Rookies' Cup winner by the end of the season.

Just as confirmed on Dec 2nd 2019, the season and race format goes back to the 2018 edition of the TCC, abandoning the idea of two half-year seasons.

Changes

Sporting regulations

After the experimental two-season year in 2019, IVRC decided for 2020 to go back to the full-year format that was used in the inaugural TCC season in 2018. Also, the number of races per event were reduced to two again, while race distances were raised from 15 to 20 minutes each. This doesn't count for the Nürburgring round however, as the rounds endurance format of 2019-2 will be kept for upcoming TCC seasons, meaning the sixth round will see only one race with a distance of approximately one hour and 10 minutes.

The weight penalty system, introduced in 2019-1, was heavily revised for 2020: instead of penalizing the best drivers of the previous event, it's now rather sanctioning the five best-placed drivers of the drivers' championship, aswell as the rookies' cup leader. This was introduced to bring the championship standings closer together, instead of bringing the field on track closer together. Also, the amount of success ballast was increased.

The most drastic change however was the introduction of a drivers-per-team limit, setting a maximum of four drivers per team per event. This, plus banning all mid-season driver switches, was introduced as reaction to the numerous huge teams in 2019-2, which stacked their amount of drivers so far up that some of them even put their drivers into other teams. However, with the new rules enforced in 2020, the league administration wants to make sure that drivers look outside their regular teams for new possibilities. The amount of four per team was chosen on the fact that each team can still bring enough drivers to each event to score points towards the teams' championship (where only the two best results of a team each race count towards it), in case they need a replacement for their regular top scorers.

While it was usual in TCC to run a reverse grid of race two, it's now changed from only the top eight of race one to all classified finishers of the first race reversed for the grid.
