    That's good news :tup:. It's not really ideal to be missing the two rounds though. Abbie Eaton as a replacement maybe?

    That's the thing with Eaton. She came all this way and to race BTCR? :sly:

    Hope she does land anything to drive at this point.

    TCR Australia, a bit of footage from the first test (from their FB page).

    Can't wait.
    Honda Australia supporting Wall Racing. Hope Subaru Australia do the same for KR. Other than at the KR garage, Subaru @ Docklands would be perfect to show one of the cars.

    Anyway, it's taken a while to confirm all drivers, to me, it feels like it'll be stronger than Australian GT.

    I think so too. TCR has had far stronger support from the get go. It’s sad that Australian GT never truly took off and looks to be dying a slow death without Tony Quinn at the helm.

    I really felt GT4 would boost the series. Same concept as TCR. Especially with Mustang and Camaro. Steven Richards tried to at least put a name in the category, but like you said, it's done.

    Edit: Japan, man. What are the chances of a TCA team doing liveries like this?

    These cars will look and sound amazing at Sandown. And what a quality field! That's what excites me the most. It's great to see stalwarts such as Bright and D'Alberto against the upcoming talents of Vernon, Rullo and Brown. Definitely a series to watch over the next few years.

    Again, shame Chaz is not allowed to race one.

    Honestly I can take or leave Greg Rust. Noonan will be good value though.

    I haven't searched for the full video to find out why it deployed.

    This thing looks too cool NOT to be racing across the world.

    I'd still like to know what's up with Matt White Motorsport. At Adelaide, he was wearing a Renault cap the whole weekend. Seemed a bit odd with him running Altimas and not at least wearing a team hat.

    Fantastic news. Might just be the opportunity Chelsea needs to restart her career. Good on Kelly Racing for giving her a go.

    They're doing live streaming this weekend, correct?

    I don't mind the Renault colours but it really depends on how other sponsors (if any) go about using their company logos. Supercheap being the most obvious offender.
    Yes :tup:

    I presume so. I haven't been able to find a definitive answer though. All it says is that it will be live streamed. I presume Facebook would be one, the official TCR TV site would be another and maybe Youtube.

    Edit: I just found this:

    ''the live stream will also be available globally via the TCR Australia and Shannons Nationals website.''
