As a massive touring car fan I have always wanted to see top line touring car action racing around the famous streets of Monte Carlo, and now it appears that the TCR International series have made that dream come true as they announce their new calender for 2017.
The series starts on April 2nd at another new venue when the third season of the championship gets underway, the Rustavi International Motopark in Giorgia.
There are two other venues new to the 10 round championship in the form of the Hungaroring in Hungary and the season closing Abu Dhabi at Yas Marina, with which they will share the bill with Formula 1, as they will at Bahrain and Monaco.
Round 9 is still to be announced however sources indicate this race will be in either Korea or China
