It was part of the Campionato Italiano Turismo Endurance, as the third division of the series.[3] Valentina Albanese won the championship, winning 12 out of a possible 14 races, driving a SEAT León Cup Racer. Jordi Gené was the only driver to defeat her in the final race of the season at Mugello, while there was no winner in a race at Enna, as Albanese – the only starter – failed to finish.

Drivers' championship

All races were held in Italy. All teams and drivers were Italian-registered, except for Spanish driver Jordi Gené. All teams used the SEAT León Cup Racer car, with Yokohama tyres.

TCR Portuguese Series

The 2015 TCR Portuguese Series season was the first season of the TCR Portuguese Series. It was part of the Campeonato Nacional de Velocidade, organised by FullEventos, as one of the six categories of the touring class.[8] Francisco Mora was the only competitor in the class, driving a SEAT León Cup Racer, and therefore won the championship unopposed.

The 2015 schedule was announced on 17 March 2015 and consisted of six rounds.[9] Subsequently, the Jarama round scheduled for 31 May was cancelled, so the official schedule consisted of five rounds, all to be held in Portugal. However, the first three rounds – held at Braga, Portimão and Vila Real – did not see any TCR entries.

Drivers' championship

All races were held in Portugal. Portuguese driver Francisco Mora used a SEAT León Cup Racer car with Michelin tyres.
