Jordan Cox continues in TCR Australia with GRM

Jordan Cox will continue to race with Garry Rogers Motorsport in this year’s TCR Australia series, sporting backing from Schaeffler for his Peugeot 308 TCR.

Cox has contested all bar the first two TCR Australia meetings, and for the past two seasons he has emerged as a genuine title challenger.

Having made his début part-way through 2019 in a Wall Racing Honda, Cox soon switched to racing an Alfa Romeo Giulietta for GRM that same season.

He remained with GRM for a second season in 2021, picking up four wins on his way to third overall in the drivers’ championship standings.

Last year, Cox switched to racing a Peugeot and immediately added a fifth series win in the season opener at Symmons Plains Raceway.

A consistent campaign, with seven podiums in total, saw Cox end the standings last year in fourth overall as GRM’s best-ranked driver.

This year, he will race the Peugeot previously campaigned by Dylan O’Keeffe in 2022.

“It is fantastic to be going into another year with the GRM team, to have that consistency with the same group of people is a big boost to start the season,” said Cox, who will partner the already-announced Aaron Cameron and Kody Garland at GRM.

“I’m super excited to represent such a well-known and respected brand in the automotive industry with Schaeffler. They are very enthusiastic about their motor racing and have a strong presence in lots of high-level categories around the world. I’m stoked to continue with Pitcher Partners as well, and my new supporters for this year in BlueSky Modular Buildings.

“We had a relatively good season last year, but just when we thought we were making inroads we’d hit a snag of some sort. It was frustrating but we know moving in to 2023 that we have everything ready to put together a very competitive season.

“The World Ranking is an interesting element, it’s a pretty good formula from what I’ve seen, and the World Final will be a sort of carrot being dangled throughout the year for us to chase.

“The ranking goes hand in hand with performance however, so our only focus will be to ensure we are performing and fighting for the championship here in Australia.

“The category is getting more competitive, we’re seeing more aggressive setups and drivers pushing harder as we have all figured out how to extract the most out of a pretty unique race car.

“It’s going to be very interesting when we race alongside the international drivers with the World Tour events.

“We’ve got a group of really skilled people all pushing hard this year so I’m excited to get the year underway, and I see no reason why we shouldn’t be up the pointy end again in 2023.”
