    ETCC: Portuguese Braga to hold fifth ETC Cup

    Post by Eurostc on Thu Aug 20 2009, 22:58

    The FIA has released details for the 2009 edition of the annual European Touring Car Cup, which will take place at the Vasco Sameiro circuit in Braga, Portugal on October 24th & 25th.

    The event has been won for the past two years by DTC racer Michel Nykjaer, against a competitive field of primarily Swedish Touring Car drivers.

    The 2009 ETC Cup will include categories for Super 1600 and Super Production, as well as Super 2000 - the top category in the majority of national series at present as well the WTCC. Invited countries that run to these rules include the Baltic States, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, and the UK.

    The invitation regulations are unchanged from last year, with drivers having to have competed in at least 50% of their national series, and not driven for a manufacturer in the WTCC. This rather unfortunately would seem put BTCC regular and DTC points leader James Thompson out of the running due to his limited schedule with Lada.

    The race however has historically tended to pull in the best racers from the Danish, German & Swedish championships for a year ending tête à tête - and since the race is being held a full three weeks after the BTCC finale, it may be able to attract some of the British team's as well this year.
