The TCR UK Touring Car Championship kicks into gear at Snetterton over the Easter weekend for Rounds 1 & 2 of the much-anticipated 2023 season. The races will take place on Sunday (9 April) with an impressive 24-car grid featuring new names, new cars and multiple tin-top champions.

Five manufacturers are represented on the grid by 10 different models, including three latest-generation versions making their UK debuts this weekend.


A field with incredible strength in depth will be giving their all in the battle for honours and an impressive prize fund totalling £75,000, which rewards the top three in each race as well as the overall championship.


There are prizes too for the champions of the Tom Walker Memorial Trophy (for rookies and those without previous podium finishes) and Goodyear Diamond Trophy (for drivers aged 40 or over) categories as well as the Driver of the Day at each event.
