Welcome to the latest review of how the drivers in the 2023 TCR UK Touring Car Championship have performed in the TCR World Ranking.
New for the 2023 season of TCR Competition is the TCR World Ranking.
Drivers score points via a dedicated system, which at the end of the year, will see the top 45 drivers in the TCR World Ranking, join the top 15 drivers who have competed in the TCR World Tour.
All 60 drivers will then compete in the TCR World Ranking Final at Portimão in Portugal on March 1-3 2024, to crown the TCR World Champion Driver, Team and Manufacturer.
With the places now set for the 2024 TCR World Ranking Final, the World Ranking system itself continues, as preparation begins for the 2025 TCR World Ranking Final.
Let’s take a look at how the TCR UK Touring Car Championship drivers have progressed after rounds fourteen and fifteen took place at Brands Hatch in Kent last weekend.
Jac Constable finishes the season with a win and top of the TCR UK runners
Jac Constable (pictured left with fist raised in triumph) claimed victory in the final race of the TCR UK Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch in his Audi RS 3 LMS, and in doing so has ended up as the best-placed of the TCR UK runners in the ranking, which is full of drivers from the high-scoring series which again featured a 20+ car entry at the weekend.
Constable has taken over from Bruce Winfield as the best-placed driver from the championship, with Winfield’s average weekend seeing him drop ten positions to 29th.
Alex Ley up to the second-best with Race 1 win
Alex Ley finished second in the drivers’ championship, and is now also second of the TCR UK competitors in the ranking at the conclusion of the 2023 season. The Hyundai Motorsport Junior Driver moved up nine spots to 24th overall, just 1.4 points away from Constable, the best-placed from the series.
Jenson Brickley the highest riser in the top 100
While Area Motorsport’s Luke Sargeant was the highest climber overall, with the Elantra racer moving up 74 spots to 324th after a strong weekend, one of the stars of the season, Jenson Brickley, was the top mover in the top 100 following his sixth place finish from the back of the grid in Race 1 on Sunday, and then his second-place finish in the final race. His pole position actually makes no difference to his ranking points, unfortunately.
Brickley now moves up 19 spots to 48th, with six drivers from the UK series in the top 50, and an incredible 11 in the top 100.
