Announcing the 2009 iTCC Touring Car Championship

After many weeks of preparation the ICON Racing team are pleased to announce their plans for a touring-car race series taking part in early 2009. The championship will be a 'Touring-Car' race series using only the FXR, which is restricted at the air-intake by 32% to give around 320 BHP.

The intention of this series is to give the racer an enjoyable and competitive race series that is run to similar rules as the BTCC and WTCC touring-car championships - and to give the viewer an unmissable spectacle to watch live on their PCs.

Features of the iTCC championship familiar to fans will include reversed grids and 'success' ballast. These measures are intended to 'level' the field to maintain a healthy competition throughout the season.

It is envisaged that the series will run for 6 'triple-header' rounds. That is to say, there will be 3 points-scoring races at each round - all of equal length; about 25 minutes each.

The races themselves will be available to watch via LFS Remote and ICON TV, which will be broadcasting commentated live in-game coverage. Additionally there will be replay files made available soon after the race, as well as whole race coverage video and edited highlights video, with analysis, coming after the race.

There is a warm-up event for this championship coming up very soon: this is to assess the level of interest for the championship and also to to make sure the equipment being used to run the race is fit for purpose. Therefore the pre-season event for the 2009 iTCC Touring Car Championship is as follows:
