Honda Australia and Wall Racing confirm 2021 programme

Honda Australia and Wall Racing have confirmed to continue its programme for the 2021 TCR Australia series season following the halted 2020 season.

“2020 has certainly been a challenging year right across the board, but despite all of the headwinds, it’s fantastic that we can finally start to look forward with a renewed sense of positivity,” said Robert Thorp, general manager of Honda Australia.

“After such a successful first year of TCR racing for Tony and the Wall Racing team in 2019, with the first TCR pole position and claiming second place in the championship, it will be an exciting way to kick off the new year with some racing through the summer months.”

The team will field a Honda Civic Type-R TCR for Tony D’Alberto, who finished second overall in 2019, in the season that starts in January.

“All the frustrations of 2020 seem far behind us now and we are full steam ahead into preparations for next year’s TCR Australia Series,” said D’Alberto.

“I feel blessed that Honda and Wall Racing are also very keen to pick up where we left off. It’s such an exciting category with a huge potential here in Australia, and as we’ve seen around the world in other TCR classes, the Honda remains one of the cars to beat.

“Of course, we want to go one better than last year, but after a year like 2020, just getting on the track will feel like a win!”
