Jordan Cox confirmed his return to TCR Australia for 2023; a regular title contender since joining Garry Rogers Motorsport in mid-2019, Cox drove a Peugeot 308 last year, scoring one race win and finishing fourth in the championship, following a third place in 2021.
This season Cox returns to GRM and will race the Schaeffler-backed Peugeot 308 previously driven by Dylan O’Keeffe. Cox is the third GRM driver to be confirmed for its program, joining previously announced teammates Kody Garland and Aaron Cameron.
“It is fantastic to be going into another year with the GRM team, to have that consistency with the same group of people is a big boost to start the season,” said Cox. “We had a relatively good season last year, but just when we thought we were making inroads we’d hit a snag of some sort. It was frustrating but we know moving in to 2023 that we have everything ready to put together a very competitive season. The World Ranking is an interesting element, it’s a pretty good formula from what I’ve seen, and the World Final will be a sort of carrot being dangled throughout the year for us to chase. The category is getting more competitive, we’re seeing more aggressive setups and drivers pushing harder as we have all figured out how to extract the most out of a pretty unique race car. It’s going to be very interesting when we race alongside the international drivers with the World Tour events.”
