Nathan Morcom joins HMO Customer Racing for 2019
HMO Customer Racing is pleased to announce that Nathan Morcom will drive one of the two Hyundai i30 N entries in the 2019 TCR Australia Series.
Morcom will become an inaugural part of Australian Motorsport history as he suits up for the first season of the international TCR formula in Australia.
Morcom brings a wealth of racing experience to the HMO Customer Team, with starts in the Dunlop Super2 Series with Eggleston Motorsport in 2018 and 2017, as well as an Australian Endurance Championship and a third place finish in the Australian GT Championship in 2016.
In the same year, Morcom was also the World Time Attack winner and took out the Bathurst 6 Hour alongside Supercars driver Chaz Mostert.
Morcom has also taken part in GT races across Europe and Asia, as well as racing in Formula
Ford in Australia and the US, Australian Formula 3 and New Zealand’s Toyota Racing Series.
Morcom has been active throughout the past two months in the Hyundai i30 N machine, with a special guest appearance in the Ultimate Speed Comparison at the Australian Grand Prix as well as recent testing at Sydney Motorsport Park.
With five weeks to go until the start of the inaugural 2019 TCR Australia Series, Morcom will now turn his attention to testing at Winton on April 30, before lining up on the grid for Round 1 at Sydney Motorsport Park, to be held on May 17-19.
All TCR Australia Series races will be televised live, free and in HD on SBS.

“I’m really looking forward to driving the Hyundai i30 N in TCR for HMO Customer Racing in 2019,” said Nathan Morcom.
“It’s a great feeling to be part of the first outfit to race in the all new TCR Series here in Australia,”
“The team is looking really good. It’s great to have the two cars here in Australia already, it provides a great platform for our engineers to prepare the cars properly leading into Round 1.
“The team is definitely looking forward to seeing how far we can push the Hyundai i30 N in the season opener in May.”
“The test session went well at Sydney Motorsport Park. It provided a further insight into the habits of the car, and it was pleasing to see what we put in place was running nicely within the Hyundai set up.”
