During the TCR Australia opener at Symmons Plains, Garry Rogers Motorsport revealed they have been appointed by Peugeot Sport to design and manufacture the TCR racing version of the new Peugeot 308 that will hit the track in 2024.
The deal will see the team build and export cars, which will race not only in Australia but in different TCR series around the world.
Garry Rogers Motorsport has been part of the racing landscape Down Under for more than two decades, most famously racing in Supercars and winning the Great Race at Mount Panorama in 2000, before successfully entering in TCR Australia with a bunch of five Peugeot 308 cars. This opened the door for forming a partnership with Peugeot Sport.
"We've had a great relationship with Peugeot Sport for the last couple of years. During the last year we started talking about the new 308, which is out in the market now. It's a great looking little car - and we got the greenlight from Peugeot Sport last week to press on and do the TCR homologation on the new car. We've got a great history of designing, building and manufacturing quality race cars, so to deal with a global brand such as Peugeot, it's something we're really proud of," Barry Rogers explained.
Garry Rogers Motorsport will be required to manufacture at least ten cars, to begin with.
