The new-for-2018 TCR UK series will offer a taster day later this month with seven cars for drivers and teams to sample.
The event, which takes place at Brands Hatch on November 29, will feature an Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Audi RS3 LMS TCR, Hyundai i30, Honda Civic Type R, Opel Astra, SEAT Leon and a Volkswagen Golf GTi.
For £250-£650 per car, drivers can sample the machinery providing they hold an International C race licence, or a National A licence with enough signatures to upgrade to an International C.
The series has also confirmed that Vital Equipment, the same firm which supplies the British Touring Car Championship and British Rally Championship among others, will be its fuel supplier.
It will have its own Balance of Performance for the UK only, which will run as a rolling average of two events, and cannot be changed in a weekend.
The entry fee for the championship is £14,995 plus VAT before December 31, and thereafter is £16,995.
That includes entry fees for all rounds, British Racing and Sports Car Club membership, hospitality tickets and exclusive Thursday test sessions over two hours each at Knockhill, Castle Combe and Croft.
The championship will officially launch at Silverstone on March 6 with a media day.
