Harris Brothers Return for Full Season with Wall Racing

Wall Racing have announced the return of Brad and Will Harris for the full 2024 Supercheap Auto TCR Australia season. The pair made history last season as they became the first brothers to compete in TCR Australia.

Brad Harris will step up to the new Honda Civic Type R FL5, after purchasing the car that Nestor Girolami drove in the Australian Kumho TCR World Tour rounds. 2024 will mark Brad’s second season of TCR Australia, after a sensational victory in his rookie year at Queensland Raceway.

The 2023 season netted a 12th place result for Brad, who missed a round at Sandown Raceway due to prior commitments, with the season highlight coming during the Queensland visit. The driver of the #74 finished 10th in race one, earning pole for race two via the top 10 invert. Brad looked a seasoned competitor from there as he raced to victory in race two and finished third in race three.

Will Harris lines up for his first full season of TCR competition, after making his debut last year at Race Sydney.

Will is set to drive the Honda Civic FK7 TCR which was last year raced by twin brother Brad. Will came into TCR Australia after plying his trade across RX8 Cup and Improved Production racing, a similar pathway to that of his brother.

The duo will join the recently announced Tony D’Alberto at Wall Racing for 2024, as the outfit becomes the first team to formally confirm their lineup for the fifth year of TCR Australia.

Round one takes place at Sandown Raceway from February 9-11, as part of the Shannons SpeedSeries.

“I learnt the ropes last year, and now we’ll see what we can do,” said Brad.

“We knew the Gen two car from Honda would be an upgrade, and we had a great opportunity to buy the car before it was brought over for Nestor (Girolami) to race in the final two rounds. We learnt a lot from Nestor across the World Tour rounds.

“I wasn’t expecting 2023 to go as well as it did, especially at Queensland Raceway, that was a bit of a shock to the system. We’re still learning a lot, particularly in qualifying, so it’s just a case of trying to put it all together in 2024 and hopefully it comes together nicely,” concluded Brad.

“There’s plenty more left in the car and the driver,” said Will.

“The more laps you do, the more confident you get. By mid-season I think we should be on the ball. It’s great to learn and work with Brad, especially on the data side which is new to both of us. Working as a team is the best way forward, even with a little brotherly rivalry.

“Having the experience of David Wall and Tony D’Alberto is more than helpful, being able to learn on their knowledge and just ask all the questions.

“Bring it on, I can’t wait,” concluded Will.
