Wall Racing in talks to expand to a third Honda entry

Wall Racing is in talks with potential drivers and backers about expanding to three Honda Civic Type-R TCR cars, possibly before the end of 2019.

Team owner David Wall confirmed that it is “very likely” that his team will expand, adding to his current two entries of Tony D’Alberto and John Martin.

“It is very likely that we will expand beyond our two current cars,” said David Wall.

“The maximum number of cars you can run per marque is five, and there’s no reason we couldn’t run three, potential four in the near future.

“The interest increased when Tony put the car on pole and we had the second and third fastest laps (in Race 1) in race trim.

“The product is obviously good enough and they sell themselves.

“The series is new, but there has been an increase in people wanting to be involved in some way shape or form. Hopefully we can grow our team in the near future.”

During the opening round, D’Alberto secured the category’s inaugural pole position and currently sits third in the standings. His team-mate Martin in in 10th after being involved in an incident in the last race.

The next round of the carsales TCR Australia Series will be held at Phillip Island on June 7-9. Tickets on sale soon.
