Winton rejoins TCR calendar

WINTON will return to the TCR Australia calendar this year as the hot-hatch series finally unveils its 2023 schedule.

There will be seven rounds this season, starting with Race Tasmania later this month at Symmons Plains.

From there, Victoria will host back-to-back events, Phillip Island preceding Winton.

The latter’s June 9-11 meeting had previously been hailed as a V8-flavoured race weekend involving Trans Am, S5000, Touring Car Masters and the V8 Touring Car Series.

“This is great news that we will have TCR Australia back at Winton in 2023,” said Australian Racing Group chief operating officer Liam Curkpatrick.

“The circuit is perfectly suited to the TCR cars, and just like we saw in 2019, it offers plenty of action and close racing.

“Our focus is now firmly on the opening round at Symmons Plains with some really great news for the category coming through in the coming weeks.”

Rounds 4 to 7 will be held at Sydney Motorsport Park, Queensland Raceway, Sandown and Bathurst.

Bathurst is confirmed to double as one of two Australian rounds on the TCR World Tour across November 10-12, with the other set to take place a week earlier.

Sandown has been mooted as a frontrunning candidate, possibly necessitating a shift from its current Shannons SpeedSeries slot in September.
