The TCR European Endurance drivers on the move in the TCR World Ranking

Thanks to their performance in the second round of the 2024 TCR European Endurance season, the drivers of the continental series promoted by Mauricio Slaviero have gained some ground in the TCR World Ranking, the standings that take into account the results across multiple TCR events around the world.

With his second place finish on his season debut, PMA Motorsport’s Sandro Pelatti has maintained 60th position after the Italian round, establishing himself as the highest ranked driver of the series. Behind him, overall winners and championship leaders Turgut Konukoǧlu and Eric Brigliadori continued to climb up the rankings; the Turk has gained 10 places on his way to 118th, whereas the young Italian is up to 280th position – 26 spots higher than last week.

Despite a mechanical failure with just three minutes left on the clock, both Filippo Barberi and Tommaso Fossati were on the rise following round two of the TCR European Endurance. The former is now sitting in 149th, whereas the latter has gained 48 spots up to 488th in the world. Gen-1 and Junior Trophy winner Zekai Özen was one of the most successful drivers on Italian soil, and the Turk’s position has improved by 22 places because of it – putting him up to 220th. Right behind him is Federico Paolino, who got up to 263rd in the TCR World Ranking after his season debut in Vallelunga with RC Motorsport.

It was a weekend to remember for Seda Kaçan and Ibrahim Okyay, with the Turkish duo once again able to take home the DSG win. The pair was among the biggest movers of the week, with Kaçan gaining 89 places on her way to 494th and Okyay securing 525th position after climbing up by 97 spots. Behind them, Barkim Pinar sits in 532nd place, after an impressive improvement of 109 positions.

There were three new entries in the TCR World Ranking after Vallelunga. On one hand, Alberto Rodio was back in the standings for the first time since 2021, with the RC Motorsport driver finding himself in 634th position; on the other hand, brothers Adriano and Claudio Gentili entered the rankings for the first time in their career and are both in 644th. Between them, the Hungarian duo of Zoltan Barkovics and Balazs Takacs – who were not on the starting grid of the Italian round – are currently in 638th.

The next round of the TCR European Endurance is scheduled to take place on June 22nd, with the Misano World Circuit hosting a spectacular night event for race number three of the season.
