Supercars Endurance is the new Iberian Series the combines the previous GT4 South European and TCR Ibérico for 2021.
The Series will feature five double-header events, three in Spain and two in Portugal, in an endurance format. The two main categories (GT4 and TCR) will still feature separate classifications.
“Supercars Endurance is an upgrade to existing national races in the Iberian Peninsula. Drivers and teams can race with cars used internationally (GT4 and TCR) following the respective technical regulations, as well as the international BOP for these types of cars. It is thought to be an international championship, continue to welcome teams and from all over Europe, with our great weather, top-class circuits and friendly organization.”, explains Diogo Ferrão, responsible for Race Ready and promoter of the GT4 South European Series.
This follows on from the experience of joining the two competitions last year in December, in the race held at the Jerez in the Regional Championship of Andalusia.
“After watching the Jerez race, Diogo Ferrão and I realized that it had been extraordinarily competitive. Both the teams and the drivers showed remarkably similar pace and we saw that there was great potential for creating a championship with these two categories and with an internationally controlled technical regulation. Supercars Endurance is the result of this collective effort”, said Paulo Ferreira, promoter of TCR Europe.
The Weekend format sees the possibility that a driver can do the whole race solo, or there is the possibility of sharing the car between two drivers, allowing a gentlemen driver to share the races with a more experienced driver or a coach.
