Wall Racing to appeal Tassie TCR non-points call

WALL Racing is set to appeal the controversial decision to not award points for the opening TCR Australia race at the 2024 AWC Race Tasmania.

Wall Racing’s Tony D’Alberto won that incident-filled hitout, held on Saturday at Symmons Plains.

Full points were initially awarded before a Garry Rogers Motorsport protest on Sunday morning triggered a hearing, where stewards determined points should in fact not be awarded due to insufficient laps being completed.

That outcome was met with tension in the paddock, culminating in 2022 champion D’Alberto taking a stand by refusing to take part in Race 3.

His Honda-aligned team is now taking matters further post-round.

“As part of the standard judicial process that is available to all competitors, Wall Racing has since lodged a notice of intention to appeal that decision, with a hearing to be scheduled prior to the next round of the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series at Race Phillip Island should the appeal documentation be provided in the prescribed time,” read a statement from Motorsport Australia.

“Given that the judicial process is continuing, the overall round standings for TCR remains provisional.

“Motorsport Australia will advise the outcome of any future judicial matters relating to this event.”

Race Phillip Island will be held across April 12-14, meaning a verdict on the Symmons Plains saga should become clear in the coming weeks.
