Morgan Park event delayed to August

The fifth round of the TCR Austalia season at Morgan Park has been put back to a new date in August as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

The event was due to take place on the weekend of 25-27 June but border restrictions in place across Australia have led to the decision to delay the meeting to 13-15 August.

“This round of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships is one we have been looking forward to for some time, with a unique ‘country round’ feel expected at Morgan Park,” Motorsport Australia Director of Motorsport & Commercial Operations Michael Smith said.

“We obviously are disappointed that we can’t hold this round of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships in June, however we are delighted to be able to secure a new date in August to put on a great show for competitors and fans alike.

“Motorsport Australia is working closely with Porsche, the Australian Racing Group and all our loyal categories to work on a track schedule for the new date and will release details of the full line up shortly, but we are hopeful everyone can join us as originally planned.

“A big thank you must also go to the Southern Downs Regional Council and the Warwick and District Car Club for their ongoing support of this event and making sure it’s a success for Warwick and the surrounding areas.”
