The TC 2000 Championship (Turismo Competición 2000) is a touring car racing series held in Argentina since 1979.

Rules[edit]

Prior to 2012, engines of up to 2000 cc were allowed, with only limited modifications from standard engines. This was both to reduce running costs, and give a level playing field to every team. Variable valve timing, variable intake geometry, anti-lock braking systems and traction control are all forbidden.

From the 2012 season, Radical Performance Engines will provide 2.7 litre RPE TCX V8 engines (a front-wheel-drive variant of the RPX, originally found in the Radical SR8), capable of producing 430 hp, in place of the previous 2 litre engines. The series was renamed to Super TC2000.[1]
