Ben Bargwanna confirms TCR Australia and TCR World Tour campaign
Ben Bargwanna is going to continue racing for Garry Rogers Motorsport in the 2023 TCR Australia series season and will make two appearances in the new TCR World Tour.
“A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to make this happen, and I cannot thank Burson Auto Parts enough for the chance to represent them on the world stage, as well a fight for the TCR Australia title,” said Bargwanna.
The Australian driver will continue racing his Peugeot 308TCR with which he finished tenth overall in TCR Australia last year.
Bargwanna is also going to take part in the TCR World Tour rounds at Algarve and Spa, along with the two rounds which are held together with TCR Australia at Bathurst and a yet to be confirmed venue.
“When the World Tour format become public, and there was a hint of an opportunity to compete, it was something I was wanted to be a part of,” said Bargwanna.
“For it now to become a reality has made me feel a foot taller with pride and excitement. The thought that I will represent Australia at a World Championship level and to be able to have crack at Algarve and Spa is mind blowing. I can’t wait to attack Eau Rouge, let me at it!
“It’s fair to say my simulator will get a work out this year in preparation for the two starts in Europe.
“Our main goal is to win the Australian title, but I am sure my three other GRM Peugeot team-mates will start the year with the same objective. I look forward to making the Peugeots 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the championship, and building a strong campaign and delivering the result the team deserves.”
