Rounds 11 & 12 – Hungaroring – 17 / 18 June 2017
PREVIEW
The TCR International Series visits Hungary for the first time

For the first time since it was launched three years ago, the TCR International Series visits Hungary and will race this weekend at the famous Hungaroring.
Built in 1986 near the village of Mogyoród, the circuit hosted the first Formula One Grand Prix to be held behind the Iron Curtain and since then the Hungarian GP has always taken place there. Its layout has been modified twice; in 1989 to remove the chicane after Turn 3 and then again in 2003, when the pit straight was extended and Turns 1 and 14 were modified.
The combination of different kinds of corners and the elevation changes, makes the Hungaroring one of the most interesting and demanding modern racetracks from a driver’s point of view.
The Hungarian event also marks the first time the TCR International Series supports DTM.

Track activity will begin on Friday, with the first Free Practice session. The second Practice will take place on Saturday morning, with Qualifying in the afternoon.
Sunday will be the race day, with Race 1 in the early morning and Race 2 at lunch time.
