Opening round of TCR Australia postponed due to COVID-19

The opening round of the 2020 TCR Australia series at Sydney Motorsport Park has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, with a new date to be announced in due course.

The season opener had been scheduled to take place at the Sydney circuit on 27 – 29 March, but the series has become the latest globally to be affected by the pandemic.

The decision was taken by promoter Australian Racing Group (ARG) together with the Australian Racing Drivers’ Club (ARDC) – the operator of the circuit – and Motorsport Australia.

A new date for the venue is set to be announced in due course.

“It is a difficult time for all and there will be a lot of questions,” said TCR Australia category manager Liam Curkpatrick.

“We are working very hard behind the scenes to provide answers to questions and to reconfigure the 2020 calendar and ensure (where possible) to minimise the impact.

“As always we will consult with our teams on our progress and where possible get feedback on options moving forward. It is important we all work together for the best possible result for the Series and all teams involved.”
