Garry Rogers Motorsport has welcomed a new Alfa Romeo to its fleet

Garry Rogers Motorsport has taken delivery of new Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce as the squad continues to grow its TCR operation.

As revealed earlier this year, the Melbourne squad has ordered a further three Alfa Romeos with the first of which now in the country.

It is the third Giulietta Veloce to arrive at GRM having fielded a car for Jimmy Vernon and Jordan Cox in TCR Australia this year, while a second has been run by Ash Seward Motorsport for Dylan O’Keeffe. 

The new Giulietta Veloce, built by Romeo Ferraris in Italy, joins the squad’s two TCR spec Renault Meganes and a Peugeot 308,  that was raced at last month’s The Bend Motorsport Park TCR Australia finale, at the squad’s workshop. 

GRM is yet to confirm the drivers for either of its Alfas for 2020, although team owner Barry Rogers says that he is close to firming up those details.

“We were pleased with the progress that Jordan Cox showed throughout his time with us and we are keen to him stay as part of our GRM family,” said Rogers.

“We got a real kick out of seeing this young guy with, basically, no major motorsport experience, challenge some of the best drivers in the country.

“We’re speaking to a number of drivers about racing the new car. We hope to have that all locked away in the next month or so.”

The news of more TCR cars joining GRM Customer Racing program comes on the back of Renault Australia’s commitment to GRM’s Renault Meganes, taking a major sponsorship role with Moffat’s #34 entry for 2020.
