17 cars for TCR Australia as Aaron Cameron gets Volkswagen seat

Aaron Cameron becomes the 17th entry for the 2019 TCR Australia series season and will drive a Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR for team Melbourne Performance Centre.

“It’s great to be confirmed for the first round of TCR Australia; I’m really looking forward to it,” said Cameron.

“I’ve driven the cars already at the test day and at a couple of 24 Hour races overseas, and I absolutely love the front-wheel drive aspect of these cars.”

The 19-year-old is the reigning Australian KZ2 Karting Champion and has driven both single seaters and touring cars.

“I’m only 19 years old but I have a fair bit of racing experience already. I’ve done two 24 Hour races with MARC Cars Australia and it was great to share the car with some skilled racers and learn off them,” said Cameron.

“These cars were great to drive for 24 Hour races and I’m sure they’ll be awesome in the sprint format as well. My expectation for the weekend is to try and stay out of trouble, we don’t know what the racing is going to be like in a sprint format here, but if we can get into a top five or a podium position by the end of the weekend that would be great.”

The 2019 TCR Australia series season starts this weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park.
