The Touring Car Championship is the league's touring car series. It is heavily orientated towards TCR's series concept and thus mirrors the usual TCR championships and weekend schedules, which contains a 10 minute Qualifying, followed by three 15-minute races. As it's the pinnacle of IVRC it will be held every Saturday of a IVRC TCC meeting.

The series features the closest competition of the IVRC. Only the best will succeed in the Touring Car Championship!

History

Touring Car Championship (2018–present):

The foundation of the IVRC included several bids and thoughts about the series to go for, ranging from open-wheeler series over multi-class racing to touring cars. However, in late January 2018, the decision was made towards a TCR-inspired series. The series was a huge initial success, despite competing with various other leagues. IVRC looks forward to keep the momentum and improve even further in 2019.

Marc Stwerka won the drivers' championship, while MPG Competition secured the inaugural teams' championship.

Race weekend

On Saturdays, drivers have a 10-minute qualifying session. The qualifying session decides the grid order for race one, run over a time of 15 minutes. After short breaks in between, the same procedure repeats for race two and three, which cover the same distance.
