The first VW Golf GTI TCR was delivered to Australia

30 October 2018

The third brand of TCR race car has landed in Australia; a Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR has arrived at Melbourne Performance Centre, the official agent for the Volkswagen Group Motorsport TCR cars. It joins the Audi RS3 LMS that the Centre already has in its fleet.

Lee Burley
, Managing Director Melbourne Performance Centre said: Seeing the car in the flesh is really exciting. We know what the cars are about, having had the Audi here for a while, and we know that car well, and this is a sister car from the Volkswagen Group. There has been great interest since the series was announced, but nothing beats having a car in the workshop that people can come and look at. We’re looking forward to the first customers coming along, put their hand up and take this one onto the track.” 

Matt Braid, 
Director Australian Racing Group, added: “It’s great to see another car arrive in Australia after Audi and Honda. You can feel the momentum starting to build and it’s very exciting. Volkswagen Group Motorsport is very committed to TCR global and VW brand is going to be really good for the series. VW doesn’t have a huge racing pedigree in Australia, however, it is such a famous brand with so much history, both on the road and race track. The Golf will certainly attract its own set of followers, so we’re really looking forward to seeing it on track."
