TCR Australia’s event at Morgan Park was cancelled
20 July 2021
TCR Australia’s debut at Morgan Park Raceway will not occur in 2021 after it was confirmed the event has been cancelled.
After having been postponed from the original date of 25/27 June to 13/15 August, the event will not take place due to the recent COVID-19 outbreaks in Melbourne and Sydney, which has resulted in state border closures.
Motorsport Australia Director of Motorsport & Commercial Operations Michael Smith was disappointed with the outcome: “We have an obligation to look after the wellbeing of all stakeholders as well as put on events that are fair to all competitors who are part of our national series and championships. Given the complexities in preparing for an event like this, and potential travel restrictions limiting the participation for many, a decision has been made early for the benefit of our competitors, officials, suppliers and of course the loyal motorsport fans.”
Additional rounds to the 2021 season are now being explored for the latter half of the year, with details to be confirmed in the coming weeks and months. For now, the next round of TCR Australia will take place at Sandown Raceway on 17/19 September.
