Sydney completes inaugural TCR World Tour calendar

Sydney Motorsport Park has been revealed as the final venue to be confirmed for this year’s inaugural TCR World Tour, with the event set to take place as the third-from-last round of the season.

Whilst Sydney is the second venue to be revealed in Australia for the TCR World Tour, it will in fact be the first to host the international stars when the races take place on 3 – 5 November.

A week later, the TCR World Tour will also join TCR Australia at Bathurst, before concluding the season in Macau another week later on 16 – 19 November.

The TCR World Tour event, a collaboration between TCR Australia promoter Australian Racing Group, TCR rights holder WSC Group and Sydney Motorsport Park, will be the first to be staged under floodlights.

It will be the first time since the World Touring Car Championship in 1987 that a top-level international touring car series visits the country. It is also 25 years since the final Super Touring Bathurst 1000 race was staged – a famous event which attracted top international tin-top racers.

“We are pleased to formalise this deal that will see two weeks of world-class motorsport in New South Wales,” said Australian Racing Group Chief Operating Officer Liam Curkpatrick.

“To have the best TCR drivers and teams come to Australia is great for our local competitors, really testing themselves against the world.

“And to conclude the TCR Australia Series with back-to-back rounds at Sydney and Bathurst is going to bring a lot of excitement and interest to TCR.”

Eugene Arocca, Motorsport Australia CEO, is looking forward to back-to-back TCR World Tour events in November.

“It’s terrific to confirm that both Sydney Motorsport Park and the iconic Mount Panorama will host back-to-back rounds of TCR Australia / Kumho TCR World Tour in November,” added Arocca.

“The opportunity to see more international level motorsport on two of our most iconic circuits is certainly an exciting prospect.

“This is certainly a boost for TCR in Australia and will also be an economic boost for NSW, with many competitors, officials and fans expected to attend each event.”

Glenn Matthews, CEO Australian Racing Drivers’ Club (owners of the circuit), added: “The Australian Racing Drivers’ Club celebrated its 70th year in 2022 with some phenomenal events, and we are thrilled to follow up in 2023 with the opportunity to promote the TCR Australia / Kumho TCR World Tour joint event at our world-class Sydney Motorsport Park venue.

“We look at TCR as a class that has variety, great appeal for motorsport and motoring enthusiasts, and we can’t wait to see how our local stars go up against the world’s best under lights at Sydney Motorsport Park.”
