TCR Australia launches the Michelin Cup for privateers

03 December 2018

Official control tyre supplier Michelin is putting its name behind a new trophy for privateer racers as part of the inaugural TCR Australia Series next year.
Series organisers will assess the driving credentials of all entrants upon application, where it will be determined if the driver is regarded as a ‘Professional’ or a ‘Privateer.’

Matt Braid, Director Australian Racing Group explained: “The TCR formula is designed to encourage the best race drivers to compete in a cost-effective, even and competitive field, but we understand that for some, racing cars comes second to business pressures and lifestyle choices.  So along with our tyre partner Michelin, we are encouraging racers of all types, whether they are professionals or private concerns, to have the chance to compete at the level that they choose. There will not be a separate championship or points scoring structure, simply reward for those who are not considered as professional in the competitive world of motorsport.”

Swaroop Tulsidas, Marketing Manager Michelin Australia added: “As the preferred tyre supplier of TCR Australia, we are thrilled to be part of the Michelin Cup as part of our belief in the series for 2019 and beyond.”
