TCR cars shine in long distance races

In 2016, Creventic, promoter of the 24H Series and the newly-created TCE (Touring Car Endurance) Series, established a class for TCR cars in its championships.
The TCE Series allowed Touring and Grand Touring cars racing together, with the GT4 class as the highest in the field. However, after the successful introduction of the TCR class, Creventic rethought the matter and decided to consider it as the highest class.
As a consequence, even if cars that are eligible to race in the SP3 class (Porsche Cayman, Ginetta G55, BMW M3) might be faster over the lap times, their performance will be controlled over the 12/24 hours using different criteria such as extra pit stops, BoP-time penalties, limited refuelling amount, etc.
The 2017 TCE Series calendar will be comprised of five events: three 24 hours and two 12 hours.
