Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Super Sends – Round 2, Phillip Island
After each round of the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series, fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite pass as part of Supercheap Auto Super Sends.
As the name suggests this is a celebration of the best sends in Supercheap Auto TCR Australia and believe us there are plenty of those!
Five successful passes will be selected at the conclusion of each round and posted on the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia social media channels where fans can select their favourite pass.
The first is the exciting battle between Honda Wall Racing’s Tony D’Alberto and the LIQUI MOLY Team MPC Audi RS3 LMS TCR of Will Brown. In a brief exchange, Brown appeared to have the move completed on the inside at MG, but a staunch defence from D’Alberto enabled him to hold the position.
Rookie Bailey Sweeny hasn’t taken long to adapt to the regular wheel-to-wheel combat, which is regularly witnessed in Supercheap Auto TCR Australia. In this case it’s a brave move around the outside at Lukey Heights, which sets up a side-by-side action through MG and the final corner to sweep around the outside of Lachlan Mineeff onto the front straight.
Next is a Peugeot attack on Michael Caruso’s Autoglym Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCR at Turn 4 as GRM Swyftx’s Jordan Cox and Aaron Cameron in the Valvoline Team GRM example make it three-wide through the hard braking, tight hairpin.
Part of his charge towards second in the final race, inaugural Supercheap Auto TCR Australia series winner Brown reunited with key title rival that season Dylan O’Keeffe where he truly sent it down the inside at Turn 1.
But he wasn’t finished there as he executed the same pass on O’Keeffe’s teammate Ben Bargwanna a lap later where he emulated last year’s series winner Chaz Mostert by getting some grass on the straight before successfully sliding down the inside at Turn 1.
So, which will it be then?
