SUPERCARS Endurance is the new competition born in the Iberian Peninsula for 2021, the result of the union between the GT4 South European Series and the TCR Ibérico Endurance Series grids, that promises for 2021, to focus the motorsport lovers attention. A competitive championship and with great grids, giving teams and drivers a total of five events and ten races, three in Spain and two in Portugal, in an attractive endurance format.
“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 think 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 way, two of the main categories (GT4 and TCR) of racing cars have a join categories, similar to championships in America, although with separate classifications. This follows on from the experience of joining the two competitions last year in December, in the race held at the Jerez de La Frontera circuit, scoring in the Regional Championship of Andalusia, where it was possible to watch a grid with more than 15 cars between GT4 and TCR.
“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 is the result of this collective effort”, said Paulo Ferreira, promoter of TCR Europe.
