TCR Australia start rescheduled due to COVID-19 restrictions

The first two TCR Australia series rounds will be rescheduled due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and border closures in Australia.

The season start was planned to be held at Sydney Motorsport Park on September 4-6 and the second round at Sandown on September 12-13.

A revised calendar, with a likely season start in October, is set to be published “in the coming weeks”.

“It is disappointing to be in this position, however, it is the reality of the current environment,” said TCR Australia CEO Matt Braid.

“Despite the difficulties, our stakeholders remain positive. Our broadcast partner Network Seven is very supportive, and our competitors and sponsors are understanding of the situation and are all looking forward to going racing.

“ARG is working closely with Motorsport Australia and remaining focused on establishing a strong calendar for 2020, including a blockbuster Bathurst International event at Mount Panorama in November.”
