TCR Australia has replaced the cancelled Morgan Park Raceway event with a round at The Bend Motorsport Park in October, marking the first visit of the series to the South Australian circuit in 2021.
The series was originally scheduled to race at Morgan Park Raceway in June, only for the event to then be postponed to August and ultimately cancelled due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions in Australia.
Instead, promoter ARG has opted to add an event at The Bend to the series’ schedule, meaning that for ARG there will be two visits for its flagship GT World Challenge series to the track, although only one for TCR Australia.
As well as GT World Challenge, TCR Australia will be joined by Touring Car Masters and the National Trans Am Series on the international configuration of the circuit.
“ARG is excited to bring our racing categories back to The Bend in October this year,” said ARG CEO Matt Braid.
“We visited The Bend twice in our first year of TCR racing in 2019, and it proved popular amongst fans and competitors alike.
“The facilities are second to none in Australia, the events are always well promoted and supported, and we look forward to seeing our huge variety of categories tackle The Bend’s impressive layout.”
The next round of TCR Australia will be at Sandown International Raceway on 17 – 19 September, more than four months after the previous event which was at Sydney Motorsport Park on the first weekend of May.
