Sports Car Championship Canada expanding with new class
The TCA class is the newest of three classes in popular race series
ST. CATHARINES, ON (August 25, 2022) – FEL Motorsports announces a third homologated class to the Sports Car Championship Canada presented by Michelin. FEL Motorsports has received official confirmation for a TCA license for Canada from SRO Motorsports Group. The TCA class includes factory-built race cars from such manufacturers as Subaru, Hyundai, Mini, Toyota and Honda. “FEL would like to thank Greg Gill and his team from the SRO,” said FEL Motorsports President, Chris Bye.
“With the addition of the TCA class, the Sports Car Championship Canada adds another rung on the ladder of homologated race cars for Canadian drivers and teams as we continue growing our grids with increased car counts and expanded competition,” Chris Bye said. “This class is designed to attract up-and-coming Canadian race drivers and teams as well as veterans wanting to prove that they still have what it takes on a level playing field that TCA cars provide,” Bye continued. “We will get our BoP from the SRO just as we do with our GT4 cars.”
The TCA class cars, all sourced from the U.S., generally run in the $50,000 to $70,000USD price range as “ready-to-race” homologated cars. The cars will be homologated for several years making this new class very attractive. The running costs will be significantly less than a TCR or GT4 cars.
There are a limited number of cars available for the 2023 season so serious teams should get their orders in as soon as possible. For more information regarding the cars, specs and ordering process, teams should contact the following:
