Half a dozen confirmed for TCM 2021

The Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters will compete across six rounds in 2021.

Featuring an eclectic mix of classic cars, the series will begin its season at Symmons Plains in January along with fellow Australian Racing Group categories, TCR Australia and Trans Am.

With the second round yet to be confirmed, the series will then spend its next three rounds as part of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships, starting at Sydney Motorsport Park in May.

Morgan Park in June and Sandown in September are the next two meetings before the series concludes its highly anticipated return to Australian race tracks with the most iconic of them all – Mount Panorama.

While a date is yet to be confirmed for the final round in Bathurst, the series will be part of a huge line up of categories making up the inaugural Bathurst International.

Category Manager Rowan Harman was pleased to announce the new calendar and was looking forward to the season.

“The 2021 Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters calendar represents a strong array of events and circuits that will be warmly received by competitors and fans alike,” Harman said.

“With the live television broadcast package that is included on the Australian Racing Group events, plus the appearance at classic venues like Symmons Plains and Mount Panorama, we feel that we have found a calendar with great balance between cost effective racing and high-profile events.

“It was also important to secure an event for TCM in Queensland. We have terrific representation of teams based in the northern state, so giving them a home event was vital. And the Morgan Park circuit is really going to suit the cars. The nature of that track might even throw up a varied result as well.

“Ending our series at Mount Panorama is exciting, too. It’s the track that we know we are going to see a strong field, and the fans love our cars being at their spiritual home.

“We still have one event to finalise, and when that is complete, we are confident that we have a calendar that fans and competitors will love.”
