Team and driver changes[edit]

W Racing Team entered the series as Leopard Racing fielding two Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR cars for defending champion Stefano Comini, who moved from Target Competition, and former FIA World Endurance Championship and Super GT driver Jean-Karl Vernay. At Spa the team entered third car for Antti Buri, who would later on race for LMS Racing in Buriram and Macau.

Liqui Moly Team Engstler retained Mikhail Grachev and signed 2015 European Touring Car Cup TC2 champion Davit Kajaia. Grachev would leave the team after 3 rounds and his seat was taken by one-off entries – Jordi Gené at Imola, Florian Janits at Salzburgring, Niklas Mackschin at Oschersleben, Vladimir Sheshenin at Sochi, Munkong Sathienthirakul at Buriram, TCR Asia Series driver Filipe de Souza at Singapore and Sepang and Jordi Oriola at Macau who later withdrew from the event. The team also entered third Golf at selected rounds – at Oschesleben it was driven by Gary Sheehan and in the final two rounds by TCR Asia Series driver Andy Yan as TCR International Series and TCR Asia Series were sharing the grid.

Target Competition initially entered two Opel Astra TCR for Jordi Oriola and Andrea Belicchi, but after the first round the team withdrew to concentrate on the development of the car. The team would reappear at Imola with a single Honda Civic TCR for Oriola, who also appeared for the team at Sazlburgring. The team would later on enter a second car – SEAT León TCR – at selected races driven by Loris Hezemans and Rafaël Galiana. Galiana would also drive the Civic at Singapore and Sepang. Touring car veteran Roberto Colciago and 2016 ADAC TCR Germany Touring Car champion Josh Files also drove for the team.

Calendar[edit]

The 2016 schedule was announced on 2 December 2015, with twelve events scheduled. Three out of these twelve rounds are to be held supporting Formula One.[50] The calendar was subsequently modified: the Shanghai round was canceled and replaced by Buriram (originally scheduled to be held on 30 October). On 5 May the Italian round was moved to Imola.[51]
