Wall Racing retains champion Tony D’Alberto for 2023 TCR Australia

Wall Racing has confirmed that reigning champion Tony D’Alberto will remain with the team for its 2023 TCR Australia series campaign with Honda Australia.

“It’s great to confirm that I’ll be coming back to defend my TCR Australia series title with the #1 placed on my Honda Civic Type R,” said D’Alberto.

“The TCR Australia is one of the best racing categories that I’ve ever been involved with, the cars are rewarding to drive, the competition is close and continues to be an affordable, market-relevant class.”

The 37-year-old rose to the top in TCR Australia last year, securing the title with a margin of nine points over Audi rival Will Brown.

“The Honda Civic Type R TCR has proven around the world to be competitive in all TCR Series, and I was very pleased to give Honda its first Title success in Australia last year,” said D’Alberto.

“With the ongoing support from JAS Motorsport, plus the professionalism of Wall Racing, there is no reason why our package won’t be a force in 2023.”

Honda Australia will continue to provide support to the team throughout the 2023 season.

“I’m very pleased to announce on behalf of Honda Australia that we will be continuing our support for Tony in TCR Australia in 2023,” said Carolyn McMahon, Director Automotive, Honda Australia.

“We know how hard Tony and Wall Racing have worked with Honda Australia over the past four years to ultimately win the series last year, and we know they will be doing everything they can to put the #1 Civic Type R TCR back up the front of the field.”
