Lachlan Mineeff will join 2023 TCR Australia season from second round

Lachlan Mineeff will join the 2023 TCR Australia series season from the second round at Phillip Island, missing the Symmons Plains season opener.

“Missing the opening round does put a dampener on our title aspirations, but as long as we can finish races and do well you never know,” said Mineeff.

“If you look back at the end of last year’s series there were a number of drivers in proper title contention with two, three or four DNFs beside their name. We’ve got to look at Tasmania as three DNFs and make sure we finish the races for the rest of the year to do really well.”

Mineeff will drive an Audi RS 3 LMS for the Purple Sector team this year, having finished 13th overall for them last year.

“TCR Australia is very exciting and promising this season,” said Mineeff.

“The fact we’ve got the TCR World Tour joining at the end of the year is awesome. I think the ability for all Australia teams and drivers, especially us at Purple Sector to compare ourselves to the best in the world is really exciting.

“TCR is such a good platform, which allows this opportunity and I’m very keen to see what we can do for the rest of the year, plus we want to make sure everything we commit to is done right as well as to the best of our ability.”
