HMO Customer Racing announced that Nathan Morcom will drive one of the two Hyundai i30 N entries in the 2019 TCR Australia Series.
Morcom brings a wealth of racing experience to the team, with starts in the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2018 and 2017, as well as an Australian Endurance Championship and a third place finish in the Australian GT Championship in 2016. He has also taken part in GT races across Europe and Asia, as well as racing in Formula Ford in Australia and the US, Australian Formula 3 and New Zealand’s Toyota Racing Series.
Morcom has been active throughout the past two months in the Hyundai i30 N machine, with a special guest appearance in the Ultimate Speed Comparison at the F1 Australian Grand Prix as well as recent testing at Sydney Motorsport Park.
“It’s a great feeling to be part of the first outfit to race in the new TCR Australia. The team is looking really good. It’s great to have the two cars here in Australia already; this provides a great platform for our engineers to prepare them properly leading into Round 1. The test session went well at Sydney Motorsport Park. It provided a further insight into the habits of the car, and it was pleasing to see what we put in place was running nicely within the Hyundai set up,” Morton said.
