TCR Australia frontrunner Aaron Cameron ready to go after off-season arm fracture
Garry Rogers Motorsport Team Valvoline driver Aaron Cameron has recovered from a pre-season injury during training and is ready to take on the strongest Supercheap Auto TCR Australia field in the category’s history.
Cameron fractured his radius in his left arm when mountain biking, which forms a part of his training away from the track.
The expected recovery time for the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series runner up from last year was six weeks, a milestone reached on the Tuesday before AWC Race Tasmania.
Cameron has confirmed he will be on the grid after experiencing a rapid improvement in the manoeuvrability in his arm after working with Leigh Stamation at Reaction Performance.
At the corresponding round last year, Cameron led Race 2 after starting from the third row, though a mechanical problem halted his progress.
He remains confident the Peugeot will be a strong package this season where he will be joined by three teammates in the same make as GRM commit to two marques in 2022.
Practice action starts today to kick off the 2022 Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series at Symmons Plains Raceway for the second running of the AWC Race Tasmania.

“I fractured my radius while completing pre-season training on my mountain bike,” Cameron explained.
“Doctors told me the recovery time was six weeks, which was Tuesday. I have experienced great improvement in the manoeuvrability of my arm in the last fortnight so I am ready to compete in the GRM Team Valvoline Peugeot at Race Tasmania this weekend.
“I’ve got to thank Lee at Reaction Performance for working with me to ensure I was right for Race Tasmania.
“It’s a stacked field, but I believe the Peugeots will be strong there just like last year. The team at GRM have worked hard to improve the reliability, so I think not only podiums, but wins will be achievable this season.
“It is a tough field; every car has a chance of winning.
“I finished third in the first season and second last year, so I am heading in the right direction to take the series in 2022.”
