Renault joins TCR Australia ranks with Garry Rogers Motorsport
Two Renault Mégane RS TCR cars will join the growing grid for the inaugural TCR Australia Series this year.
The pair of Renaults will be entered and prepared by Garry Rogers Motorsport, which is expanding its TCR Australia involvement, having previously confirmed it will run two Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloces.
The Mégane RS TCR vehicles are highly regarded in the TCR global world, manufactured by the Swiss-based engineering company Team Vuković Motorsport.
This year marks the second season that the Mégane RS will compete in TCR Series, with entries for the vehicles already confirmed for TCR Europe, Germany and the UK.
Renault’s spot on the TCR Australia grid also takes the manufacturers represented up to six, joining Audi, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Honda and Alfa Romeo in the dynamic international racing series.
The drivers of the GRM-entered Renaults will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
GRM has a deep history in Australian motorsport, with team owner Garry competing as both a driver and team owner for more than five decades.
During that time, GRM has entered cars privately and as a factory team, having enjoyed support from Holden and Volvo in factory-supported entries.
The 2019-specification Mégane RS TCRs are expected to arrive in Australia next month ahead of the opening round of the series at Sydney Motorsport Park on May 17-19.
All seven TCR Australia events will be broadcast live, free and in HD on SBS.
