TCR Australia introduces semi-pro class

THERE will be a class structure introduced to TCR Australia competition this year.

Drivers classed as semi-professional will battle it out for the TCR Challenge, adding a new dimension to the 2024 season.

The semi-pro class will operate within the outright field and, per category communications, is open to drivers “over the age of 30 (prior to the commencement of the season) who have not had a top three points finish in any national or international competition”.

Drivers will become ineligible if they record more than three top three round finishes in 2024.

Five of the 15 drivers on the grid for Round 1 at Sandown are currently eligible for the TCR Challenge component: Brad Harris, Will Harris, Glenn Nirwan, Iain McDougall and Marcus LaDelle.

“The introduction of the TCR Challenge is an opportunity to showcase the diversity and calibre of the competitors within the TCR Australia Series,” said category manager Lisa Totani.

“This will provide eligible drivers with a platform to contest for meaningful results with their respected class.”

The TCR Australia season kicks off tomorrow as part of the Shannons SpeedSeries round at Sandown.

There will be four hours of action broadcast on 7mate across the weekend, plus more extension coverage via 7plus.
