- FEL Motorsports announces a third homologated class to the Sports Car Championship Canada presented by Michelin. FEL Motorsports has received official confirmation for a TCA license for Canada from SRO Motorsports Group. The TCA class includes factory-built race cars from such manufacturers as Subaru, Hyundai, Mini, Toyota and Honda. “FEL would like to thank Greg Gill and his team from the SRO,” said FEL Motorsports President, Chris Bye. “The TCA class cars, all sourced from the U.S., generally run in the $50,000 to $70,000USD price range as “ready-to-race” homologated cars. The cars will be homologated for several years making this new class very attractive. The running costs will be significantly less than a TCR or GT4 cars.”
