Michael Clemente confirms 2023 campaign with Carl Cox Motorsport

Michael Clemente has confirmed his 2023 TCR Australia campaign, driving an Audi RS 3 LMS under a new team name in the form of Carl Cox Motorsport.

The new team name comes following an extended partnership with Carl Cox, a Australian-based, British house and techno music record producer.

“I first met Michael, his family and team in 2022. Seeing Michael’s TCR race car for the first time was amazing, what a weapon that car is!” said Cox.

“It’s no secret I have a passion for cars and motorsports, so my decision to support Michael was an easy one. Seeing how excited Michael, his family and team were to have a Carl Cox Motorsport sticker on the car, cemented it. That’s why I want to help their race campaign even more, so here we are with a full sponsorship campaign.

“The Carl Cox Motorsport TCR Michael Clemente Racing Team will be going hard at it this year…Oh Yes, Oh Yes!”

Clemente finished 15th overall last year, making a switch from Honda to Audi ahead of the Bathurst season finale.

“I have to be honest, and say I am super excited to be racing under the prestigious Carl Cox Motorsport banner for this year,” Clemente said.

“It’s incredible to have this kind of support from Carl, and I can’t wait to maximise this opportunity and show what we can do as a team. This season is different in many ways, all for the better and it’s all gelling together quite nicely which hopefully sees us spraying some champagne this year.

“Carl’s a growing force in motorsport globally, and it’s so good to be able to demonstrate to our existing long term partners that Carl, with his Facebook following of 3 million people, cares enough about the sport of TCR Australia and a young kid from Point Cook, Victoria, to invest in me and help me through to the top. Well, that’s the aim anyway!”
