The 2021 TCR Australia Series will welcome the return of Honda Australia with the factory team to continue its support for Tony D’Alberto and the Wall Racing next year.
With the series recently unveiling 2021’s new six-round calendar, it allows D’Alberto and Wall Racing to continue their plans for next season, knowing they’ll maintain the factory support which was supposed to commence on-track in 2020.
“All the frustrations of 2020 seem far behind us now and we are full steam ahead into preparations for next year’s TCR Australia Series,” D’Alberto said.
“I feel blessed that Honda and Wall Racing are also very keen to pick up where we left off. It’s such an exciting category with a huge potential here in Australia, and as we’ve seen around the world in other TCR classes, the Honda remains one of the cars to beat.”
Honda Australia General Manager, Robert Thorp was pleased with the continued partnership and was looking forward to what the 2021 campaign can bring for the brand.
“After such a successful first year of TCR racing for Tony and the Wall Racing team in 2019, with the first TCR pole position and claiming second place in the championship, it will be an exciting way to kick off the new year with some racing through the summer months,” Thorp added.
“We’ve just launched a major update for the Civic Type R last month and we have some special plans in development to bring the road car and race car programs together during the 2021 season, so fingers crossed the current situation continues to improve.
“I know the entire team at Honda Australia can’t wait to see the Civic Type R TCR car back on track.”
The TCR Australia Series will begin the 2021 season at the iconic Phillip Island Racing Circuit with a specific date yet to be confirmed.
