I mean, Caruso liked my comment on his post.
Could we have more cars enter as the season progresses or is this all we'll get?
Well, so far we have 10 brands represented. The cap are 5 cars from each manufacturer. Could happen.
Edit: I'm not feeling it, but okay..,
That's a maybe off the list (Wall) and Martin on. Still eleven more drivers to come (I was wrong before, there's 17 cars ). And yeah, not really feeling it either
Just need someone to bring a Ford and Peugeot over and that's the Australian market covered.
Nice. Happy for Martin to get a drive. The drivers announced so far give me hope that we're going to see some real high quality racing.
Honestly I don't mind it. Looks pretty good from the front.
Yeah, there are some more pics of the MG on other sites. Looks alright.
As FPV mentioned, teams are looking outside the box for drivers. However, still waiting to see where young Jordan Cox will be. That's if he's got anything lined up in TCR.
Well, one of the commentators, just commented in the B6H coverage, that MARC Cars are looking to make a MARC Cars series here in Australia. He said more cars were being built.
Did you read about this @05XR8 : https://www.speedcafe.com/2019/04/20/ingall-believes-tcr-not-a-competitor-to-supercars/
Morris suggested that Kelly and GRM could even be in breach of their Racing Entitlements Contracts but said they are justified in seeking to diversify their operations.
“There is a shareholders agreement that it could contravene; it depends on how you want to interpret it,” he claimed.
Yes. I watched the program. Sure, he knows more than me, but I was saying in comments how Erebus ran GT3 before and during V8SC. Now, T8 are running in GT3 Asia. What's the problem now? We'll have to get more info on the contracts.
Exactly . Teams have been running other series for years, GRM's Nations Cup Monaro for one, and as you mentioned, Erebus. I think that in this day and age that kind of nonsense is antiquated and should be done away with. DJRTP and WAU, well the TP and the A bits, race all kinds of series, so I don't quite understand why TCR should be treated any different. Perhaps this is what Tickford was meaning by conflict of interest moreso than for the brand with Chaz (I can't remember how they worded it and I'm too lazy to look it up right now ).
Yeah, it was that CHaz races a Ford and he'd be driving for a Ford competitor in HYundai. Wait, he races a BMW at multiple events....
I’m liking those ticket prices for the Nationals. I’ve never been to one of their events so it looks like I’ll have to get out and see the TCR cars in action down at The Bend later this year.
Hope it's good racing. I'll no doubt be following Saitama Toyopet Green Brave
James Moffat joins the TCR Aus grid in a GRM Renault Megane.
*Sniff sniff* do I smell a GRM reunion in caruso next?
How many cars are they running? Pither is the other one as far as I know.
Four, two Alfa's (Jimmy Vernon and ????) and two Renault's (Moffat and Pither).
Wonder if Drivers like Leanne and Garth, Fiore, Canto, will get called up for drives.
When it was first announced. I had fears that the first season of TCR Aus might look a bit like Formula 4 or the SuperUtes with only a handful of cars on the gird. But manufacturers, teams and drivers have really gotten behind this. Should be a good season.
Hope TCR Japan broadcast on YouTube. Want to check their liveries.
Well, the TCR Hungaroring YT stream, is an hour late.
In other news:
I wouldn't have guessed him for this seat, but I'm happy to see him in TCR. Talented young lad, and full of enthusiasm
I also hope a team grab a couple Peugeots. I still see plenty new ones on the road. Wouldn't hurt to advertise in this series. The ones in WTCR aren't bad.
When does the season start?
May 17. There is a test day on Monday at Winton.
Maybe check if you can view it https://www.sbs.com.au/topics/sport/article/2019/02/12/touring-car-series-racing-live-sbs
Spoke too soon.
Molly Taylor lands Kelly Racing TCR drive.
Surprised that she's the first driver KR have announced so far. They are kind of leaving it a bit late.
