The Australian Grand Prix Corporation announced that TCR Australia will host its season opener at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix 2020, at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit from 12-15 March.

The event will revive the association between TCR and Formula 1 that saw the TCR International Series racing as support series of F1 GPs seven times between 2015 and 2017.

AGPC CEO, Andrew Westacott said: “
There is always such a strong appetite from our fans for on-track activity, so having the exciting racing of a TCR Australia Series round at our event is the perfect fit.

AGPC is always looking to inspire the next generation of drivers and being able to showcase a new Australian motorsport category not just nationally, but globally, is such a fantastic opportunity for all involved.”

TCR Australia’s Managing Director, Matt Braid commented:
"The Australian Racing Group is extremely pleased to announce our involvement with the Australian Grand Prix, that is the largest and most significant international motorsport event held in Australia, and it will be fantastic to showcase the TCR category on the Albert Park circuit as part of the event.

TCR teams, drivers and manufacturers are all excited by the opportunity to race over the Grand Prix weekend and we look forward to providing some action-packed racing for the fans at the track and the audiences watching event broadcast."

Five of the TCR Australia cars took to the circuit to celebrate the announcement.
