    This series looks good. What are the technical regs?
    Rust is lighter than carbon fibre.

    This series is starting to get some attention. Should be a good thing.

    From what I've heard, I think they now have 4 Hyundais, 2 Alfas, 1 Golf, 1 Audi, and 1 Honda confirmed for the grid so far.

    Aussie Driver Search is also looking at fielding up to four cars in the field as well. Arrive and drive packages for the year or leased per event.

    There is some ambiguity around what cars are actually running in the series, as the Honda and Audi are on loan from their respective constructors.

    Jimmy Vernon (2017 Toyota 86 Series Champion) has just signed up with GRM to race one of the Alfas.

    Just clicked to see what coverage there will be. Thanks for the link. Are they running concurrent with the v8's or is it a stand alone touring series?

    Running with the Shannons Nationals with AusGT, second teir Porsches, production cars, etc.

    Probably won't ever run with the V8s.

    The V8Supercars will be trying their hardest to make sure that the series fails so as not to upset their ever diminishing cash cow

    which is amusing since they're completely different demographs I imagine..

    Just give us back Group A racing damn it.

    Tickford Racing boss Tim Edwards has blocked Chaz Mostert from competing in TCR Australia, for the semi-works Hyundai team.

    Yes, and also no.

    Ford don't have a TCR car to play with right now, yet they seem content with him taking on their products in rival BMWs.

    BMW isn't a competitor to Ford in the same way that Hyundai is. I get the logic.

    Well a Focus TCR did exist but was underdeveloped and hasnt been seen in a while.
    I donít think itís stretch to think that Supercars wouldnít want their most marketable star racing in a rival touring car series. Maybe a quiet word was said.

    The Focus TCR is no longer homologated.

    A couple of different entities have tried to revive the program, but haven't had the funds to bring the car up to spec and re-homologate it.

    Itís a shame that Ford Performance havenít done anything. With the factory behind them I bet theyíd sell a heap of cars.

    Triple 8 are teasing a big announcement on the weekend. I thought it was a rebadged Opel TCR at first but the teaser on book of face has a pic from B12 so probably something Gt related.

    The Alfa is not a bad looking bit of gear.

    Rather a Abarth 695 or maybe even a Punto TCR than the Alfa.. but more manufacturers the better I guess

    Fiat have approved a Tipo, however it was a dog before it was even homologated.

    Doubt it's TCR. Someone else has just secured the Australian contract for the Astra. Mr Dane wouldn't play it that way.

    A few suggestions for the webpage
    Have a count down to the next race weekend similar to supercars/f1/motogp/bunch of others.

    Maybe a section breaking down the schedule with dates, tracks, etc as well. Would make it more accessible for fans.

    Similar pages for teams/drivers.. all good listing all the cars that are TCR compliant but no idea from the website who/what are actually competing this year without trawling through the news articles.
