TOTAL RACES ON WITH TCR AUSTRALIA IN 2021
Total Oil Australia, continues its partnership with the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series in 2021.
After an exciting inaugural season in 2019, the TCR Australia Series returns this coming week (January 24-26) at Tasmania’s Symmons Plains Raceway for a much-anticipated season opener.
The partnership between Total and Australia’s version of the global TCR (Touring Car Racing) formula began ahead of the 2020 season, which unfortunately did not take place due to restrictions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Total, the Major Partner and Official Lubricant of TCR Australia, has remained committed to the series throughout the extended interruption to racing.
TCR Australia is one of Australia’s highest profile racing series, featuring 2.0 litre turbocharged touring cars representing a variety of automotive brands. The cars competing in TCR Australia are racing versions of the ‘hot hatch’ segment widely driven on roads in Australia and globally.
The 2021 season promises to be competitive, with the TCR Australia field comprising a mix of established champions and up-and-coming stars. Joining the TCR grid this season will be Chaz Mostert, one of the biggest names in Australian motorsport, along with Supercars race winner Lee Holdsworth and Bathurst 1000 winner Jason Bargwanna.
Total branding will feature on the front and rear bar of every car in the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series and the stand-alone Bathurst International event in 2021.
Every race of the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series and Bathurst International will be televised live and free across the screens of Seven, specifically the 7mate channel and 7plus live streaming and on-demand platform.
