Wall Racing has reaffirmed its commitment to the TCR Australia Series by securing a second Honda Civic Type R TCR for the inaugural championship this year.
The Sydney-based team will soon receive a brand-new Civic, adding to the car that was originally delivered to Australia for the launch event held at Sydney Motorsport Park in November last year.
The new Civic Type R will come directly from Honda’s official homologation team J.A.S Motorsport, which is based in Arluno, Italy.
As well as the new car purchase, Wall Racing has also secured a deal with J.A.S Motorsport to become the Australian agent for the Honda TCR vehicles in Australia.
The addition of two TCR cars for Wall Racing will make for a big year for the David Wall-owned team, entering cars for customers in Carrera Cup, GT3 Cup Challenge, Australian GT and now, TCR Australia.
David Wall says that he has received solid interest from drivers seeking a seat in TCR Australia and hopes to lock down his two drivers, and possibly more, ahead of the opening round of the series at Sydney Motorsport Park on May 17-19.
If you can’t make it to Sydney for the opening round, all TCR Australia races will be broadcast live, free and in HD on SBS.
Owner, Wall Racing
“We’re pleased to have secured a second Honda Civic Type R for the 2019 TCR Australia Series,” said David Wall.
“It is an exciting new championship to Australia and we are getting closer to locking down drivers to fill the seats.
“At the moment, we’ll start the season by running two cars ourselves, but we have the capabilities of running up to five, so we’ll just see what the interest levels are like in the coming weeks.
“We’re happy to run multiple cars and service other Hondas at the events. They don’t have to be run by our team. We are being very flexible with our customers.
“I’m working on getting some ‘professional’ drivers in the cars. I feel that it is important to have a strong line-up of drivers, but we’re also open to amateur racers too. The category is user-friendly and cost-effective, and now with the TV deal on SBS in place, there’s even more reason to compete.
“I have to thank the team at J.A.S Motorsport for its assistance with securing the Hondas. They are an extremely well built car and have proven their competitiveness all around the world.”
