René Münnich joins Wall Racing for Melbourne race

René Münnich will join the TCR Asia Pacific Cup race during the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on March 12-15th.

“I’m delighted to have this opportunity of racing in Australia, a country that I haven’t visited before,” said Münnich.

“I’m especially excited to take part in such a glamorous event that will see a top-level field racing in front of the huge F1 crowd.”

The 42-year-old, who claimed the final TCR Middle East title, will drive a Honda Civic Type-R FK8 TCR for Wall Racing, with the team working on fielding further cars in the race at Albert Park.

“It’s great to have some international flavour in our team for the Albert Park race,” said team owner David Wall.

“René has proven himself in these types of cars all around the world, and he is really eager to try his luck against what will be a very competitive TCR field.

“We have two other Honda Civics that could enter the Albert Park meeting, but we will make an announcement on those cars in the near future.”
