Drivers excited to join legendary week of motorsport
Supercheap Auto TCR Australia will return to Mount Panorama for a second time this year as part of a mammoth Bathurst 1000 week commencing on November 30 through to December 5.
It promises to be an action-packed Supercheap Auto TCR Australia season finale as focus will be on the intense fight for second in the title, which includes more than 10 drivers.
Garry Rogers Motorsport driver James Moffat is placed 12th and is less than 100 points behind second placed Luke King, however his Renault Megane R.S. TCR is beginning to hit form after finishing on the podium at Sydney Motorsport Park.
Moffat will complete double duty at the meeting and is excited by the development of this ‘super event’.
”There could be no better outcome from it all,” said Moffat.
“It’s been a challenging time for everyone, not just the motorsport industry. To have everything join forces in one big event is a great result.
“Plans have changed multiple times, so creating this super event is a good outcome for everyone involved, especially most importantly for the fans, who will have all these great categories to watch across an exciting six days of action.
”It will be a spectacular way to finish off the year at Australia’s most prestigious event at this country’s best circuit.
“Hopefully people embrace it and get right behind it.”
HMO Customer Racing team manager and driver Nathan Morcom believes the event will only enhance the interest surrounding Supercheap Auto TCR Australia providing strong momentum into its third season in 2022.
“I’m absolutely stoked that TCR gets to race on the biggest motorsport weekend in Australia,” said Morcom.
“It’s been a long-time coming and I think everyone will be keen to see our two-litre, turbocharged hot hatches race door-to-door around the best track in Australia, alongside all of the other big categories.
“I’m really looking forward to hitting the track running, it’s been a while since we’ve been out on the track.
“Our cars are turbocharged, two-litre pocket rockets, but don’t hold anything against them. We produce the best racing in Australia, especially door-to-door and I think not everyone has come out to experience it yet in person, so it’ll be good to show that at Australian motorsport’s biggest weekend, that’s for sure.”
