Driver, Kelly Racing Opel Astra TCR
“It’s great to be continuing my relationship with Kelly Racing in the new TCR Australia Series driving the new Astra,” said Alex Rullo.
“I think it’s going to be a really exciting and promising series. The free-to-air deal with SBS will give the series a lot of public interest.
“The cars are terrific. The car has just landed and I‘m looking forward to driving the Astra at Winton on Monday. I drove a British Touring Car Astra in the UK recently. These are similar to the TCR cars, and that was a heap of fun.
“My expectation is to be competitive. The driver and team line-up looks really strong, but it’s a new series, new cars and everyone is new to it so there are a lot of unknowns. Kelly Racing is a great team though, so I feel we are going to be at the top and really looking forward to being a part of it.”
Owner, Kelly Racing
“We really enjoyed our relationship with Alex last year and we are glad to be able to keep him in our stables in the Astra TCR car,” said Todd Kelly.
“For a young kid, he is very mature behind the wheel and has a lot of potential. These cars are going to suit him and the experienced field of drivers will be a good test.
“We are very confident that he will be competitive and we’re can’t wait to get the car out on track at Winton and Monday and get a good feel for it all.”
