TrackTec Racing confirms it will race in TCR New Zealand
10 May 2019
TrackTec Racing is the first team that confirmed its plan to take part in the inaugural TCR New Zealand Series next year. The newly-formed team is based at Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell and is led by engineer Matt Waters who has experience in Formula 1, Formula 2, IndyCar and Formula E.
The outfit has purchased an Audi RS 3 LMS that will be run in the South Island Endurance Series before joining the TCR New Zealand Series in 2020. A second Audi car will be purchased soon, as the team might enter up to four TCR cars in the new series.
“Our main focus is on the TCR championship,” Waters said. “I think TCR is going to become the premiere saloon car series in New Zealand. I feel that a lot of people who do endurance racing will go this route. I feel that TCR is a very cost effective way of racing for what you’re going to get. I think it’s going to be really good for New Zealand motorsport.”
