“Seeing the car in the flesh is really exciting,” said Lee Burley.
“We know what the cars are about, having had the Audi RS 3 TCR here for a while, and we know that car well, and this is a sister car from the Volkswagen Group. It’s the same platform, it’s really just body panels and the badge on the front.
“There has been great interest since its announcement, but nothing beats having a car in the workshop that people and come and look at.
“We’re looking forward to the first customer coming along, put their hand up and take this one onto the track.”

“It’s great to see another car arrive in Australia. You can feel the momentum starting to build and it’s very exciting,” said Matt Braid.
“Volkswagen Group Motorsport is very committed to TCR global, and VW brand is going to be really good for the series.
“VW doesn’t have a huge racing pedigree in Australia, however, it is such a famous brand with so much history, both on the road and race track. The Golf will certainly attract its own set of followers, so we’re really looking forward to seeing it on track."
