TCR Australia was officially launched in a media and competitors day at Sydney Motorsport Park, where an array of drivers and teams attended to get a close look at the category.



Four cars were available for testing: Audi RS3 LMS, Hyundai i30 N, Honda Civic Type R and Volkswagen Golf GTI.




Drivers who sampled them included 2014 Bathurst 1000 champion Chaz Mostert, James Moffat, Leanne Tander, Tony D’Alberto and Macauley Jones, among others. Leading Australian race team identities, like Garry Rogers, Brad Jones and Jason Bright, as well as other high-profile guests were onsite.



Mostert got his maiden TCR laps in the HMO Customer Racing Hyundai, while Moffat drove the Honda, Tander and Jones steered the Audi and D’Alberto undertook laps inside the Volkswagen.



Many other drivers also got opportunities to drive, including recently crowned Australian F4 Champion Jayden Ojeda, rising star Charlotte Poynting and former track and field athlete turned racer John Steffensen.





TCR Australia used the media and competitor day to announce several key sporting regulations, including Michelin as the official tyre supplier and provisional race formats based on three sprint races per event.
