This weekend’s third event of TCR Australia will mark the maiden appearance of TCR cars on the iconic road circuit of Mount Panorama at Bathurst.
For this occasion, the usual schedule has been amended to fit in the timetable of the event that includes the 6-hour race. This means that both Race 1 and Race 2 will take place on Saturday morning, with Race 3 on Sunday morning.
After the first two events of the season, Chaz Mostert (Melbourne Performance Centre, Audi RS 3 LMS) has taken the lead of the standings, 15 points clear of his rookie teammate Luke King. Lee Holdsowrth (Ashley Seward Motorsport, Alfa Romeo Guilietta Veloce) lies in third position a further ten points adrift. Tony D'Alberto (Wall Racing, Honda Civic Type R), Nathan Morcom (HMO Customer Racing, Hyundai i30 N) and Aaron Cameron (Team Valvoline GRM, Peugeot 308) are currently fourth, fifth and sixth with gaps of 43, 47 and 49 points respectively, making five different brands of car manufacturers within the top five.
The field grows to 22 cars for the event, with the additions of a third Audi car run by the Melbourne Performance Centre for last year's race winner Garth Tander and a third HMO Hyundai car for Duvashen Padayachee who scored three class win in the Bathurst 12-hour race between 2017 and 2020.
