Canberra-based team Tilton Racing will run a Hyundai i30 N car for Brad Shiels in the 2020 TCR Australia Series.
The 26-year-old from Bathurst tested the Hyundai at Sydney Motorsport Park in March, just prior to the COVID-19 lockdown.
Shiels is an accomplished racer, starting his motor sport career in production cars before progressing to Sport Sedans, Australian GT and Radicals. He is currently the lap record holder in a Radical sportscar around the Mount Panorama circuit.
“This is going to be a great opportunity. I love the TCR category, it has competitive racing and some high profile names so it’s going to be great to be a part of it,” said Shiels. “In terms of results, I really don’t know what to expect. I’ve only driven the car once at a test day. I don’t have any expectations. We’ll just see how we go and try and work our way to the front.”
