Christopher Mies to make TCR Australia debut at Bathurst

Christopher Mies will make his TCR Australia debut during the Bathurst 400 season finale for Melbourne Performance Centre.

“Bathurst is always special and to come back after many years after not being able to be in Australia, I’m really looking forward to it,” said Mies.

“Australia is my favourite country and racing there is always a pleasure. I like the Australian racing culture.”

The German, who is under contract with Audi Sport, will drive an Audi RS 3 LMS and be on double duty during the Bathurst weekend, also racing an Audi R8 LMS GT3 in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve driven a TCR car. It was a couple years back developing the Gen 1 car,” said Mies.

“Also jumping back and forward in two different kinds of race cars is something I haven’t done for years so don’t judge me if I am holding everyone up in the first session!

“Obviously my main goal is to help Yasser (Shahin) win the championship and this is what I will do. From what I’ve heard he’s a great guy and an even better racer.

“I can’t wait to get this done for him and MPC. I’ve really missed these guys and I’m looking forward to continuing our story together.”
