The Japanese Touring Championship is the league's prime Asian touring car series. It is heavily orientated towards Super GTs series concept and thus mirrors the usual SGT championships and weekend schedules, which contains a 20 minute Qualifying, followed by one 200 km race. As it's the pinnacle of the Asian IVRC market it will be held every Saturday of a TCC meeting.
The series features the closest competition of the IVRC. Only the best will succeed in the Japanese Touring Championship!
Japanese Touring Championship (2020–present):
Starting in mid-2018, IVRC introduced the idea of a series based on the Class 1-regulations, however the idea was rejected quickly. As soon as IVRC started to gain attraction on the East Asian/Oceania market, league administration decided to run a series fitting for this region and time zones. The series was intended to run either as Supercars, Super Formula or Super GT series, however with the OWC already covering open wheel racing and TCC covering the concept of another big Australian touring car series, the decision fell towards a GT500 class inspired series.
For the future the league administration will look into adding the GT300 class to the series aswell.
On Saturdays, drivers have a 20-minute qualifying session. The qualifying session decides the grid order for the race, run a distance of 200 km.
Each race will be run with a scoring system similar to the one used in all IVRC series:
The maximum number of points a driver can score at any round will be 25.
- Each driver has to drive 50% of race distance to be eligible for points.
- Game: Automobilista
