The Bend’s West circuit tipped to suit TCR

AARON Cameron has voiced his support for the decision to run the upcoming Shannons SpeedSeries round on Tailem Bend’s West layout.

The 3.41km circuit will be used instead of the more common 4.95km International variation, which TCR Australia raced on twice in 2019.

Round 4 across May 31 to June 2 marks TCR’s first time back to South Australia since then.

Cameron is one of five among the current crop of drivers to carry TCR Bend experience from that season, along with Tony D’Alberto, Dylan O’Keeffe, Jordan Cox and Iain McDougall.

“I love going to The Bend, it’s one of my favourite circuits and we don’t get to race there as often as I’d like,” said Cameron, a TCR race winner who has multiple S5000 titles and is second in the 2024 Super2 standings.

“The West Circuit looks like fun, it’s going to create a bit of difference and something new for us to learn which we don’t get very often.

“I think it’ll promote some great racing, we often lose out on the high-speed corners through the aero wash on the International layout, whereas the West circuit is full of corners where we’re going to be able to follow really closely.

“The (five) of us having raced there before might be a little advantage initially, but so much has changed and we’re on a different tyre now with the Kumho.”

Joining TCR at Race Tailem Bend will be Trico Trans Am, GT World Challenge Australia, GT4 Australia, Porsche Sprint Challenge, National Sports Sedans, and Australian Production Cars.

Before then, Cameron will compete this weekend in Round 2 of the Dunlop Series at Wanneroo Raceway.
