Wall Racing expand to three Hondas, Jordan Cox joins the fold

Honda team Wall Racing will be adding a third car to their TCR Australia series campaign at The Bend as Jordan Cox joins the squad ahead of the South Australian outing.

The 26-year-old became an internet sensation back in 2017 when video emerged of him engaged in a David and Goliath battle in his EG Honda Civic against a VP Holden Commodore during the Bathurst 12 Hour support races.

Cox made a seemingly impossible move at Brock’s Skyline stick against the big V8 bruiser and became a near instant hit within the Australian motorsport community online.

While he competed in the World Time Attack Challenge with Hyundai in their new i30N road car last year, Cox is keen to put in a strong showing for Honda at The Bend.

“I’ve followed TCR cars for a few years and it’s a category that I’ve always wanted to do,” Cox said.

“A lot of my background is front wheel drive racing, so I know a bit about the cars and I’ve always been keen to get into one.

“The Hondas have shown strong pace, but Tony and John have been unlucky and haven’t been able to convert it into race wins with some misfortune and incidents. The cars are very good, so the tides have to turn and there’s no reason why it can’t happen at The Bend.

“I’m going into the round with a very open minded. I’ve got no set goal to win. A realistic result is to finish every race and be in or around the top five. Above all else, I really want to learn. There’s a lot of strong competition, both drivers and teams, so I really want to take as much out of the meeting as I possible can.

“I have to thanks David and all of the Wall Racing team for the opportunity. I tested a Porsche for him recently and I’m really keen to build on that and get some results for them.

“Also have to put a shoutout to my fans and supporters, there has been some hype on my social media pages recently and I’ve received some great messages of support so big thanks to them. Bring it on!”

Racing for the Shannons Nationals/TCR at The Bend will occur from the 12th-14th of July.
