Entry list locked in for TCR Australia Round 1

Jay Hanson

A 20-car entry list for Round 1 of the 2022 Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series at Symmons Plains has been released.

The field is comprised of a total of seven makes, including several current or former Supercars Championship full-timers and some front-wheel drive specialists.

Inaugural Supercheap Auto TCR Australia title winner Will Brown is a high-profile addition, replacing Chaz Mostert in the Audi which the latter took out last year’s series with.

He is one of three in the Melbourne Performance Centre stable this weekend at AWC Race Tasmania, along with Jay Hanson in the new-generation Audi RS 3 and Targa Tasmania winner Eddie Maguire on debut in a Volkswagen Golf GTI.

At Brown’s old team, HMO Customer Racing, Josh Buchan and Nathan Morcom are joined by Bailey Sweeney as the squad expands to three Hyundai i30 N entries on a full-time basis.

Wall Racing’s Honda Civic Type Rs are populated by two men who have driven together in the Bathurst 1000 four times, namely Fabian Coulthard and Tony D’Alberto.

Garry Rogers Motorsport represents almost a third of the field, running Peugeot 308s for 2021 series runner-up Aaron Cameron, Jordan Cox, Dylan O’Keeffe, and Ben Bargwanna, plus Renault Meganes for James Moffat and Kody Garland.

Ashley Seward Motorsport fields former GRM driver Michael Caruso in an Alfa Romeo Giulietta, with the privateer contingent made up of Brad Shiels (Hyundai), Lachlan Mineeff (Volkswagen), Zac Soutar (Honda), Liam McAdam (Audi) and Braydan Willmington (Alfa Romeo).

Practice 1 starts tomorrow at 12:15 local time/AEDT.
