“I’m really looking forward to my first race in Australia,” said Rik Breukers.
“It will be my first visit to the country and I’m very grateful and happy with the deal to compete with Melbourne Performance Centre in the Audi RS 3 TCR car.
“I want to thank Ryan McLeod and everyone involved who put it together. We will do our best to get a good result and to represent Audi in the best way possible.”

“He has driven a lot of cars in some big races all around the world so it is a privilege to have Rik for the first round of TCR Australia,” said Troy Russell.
“At this stage, the deal we have is just for the opening round, but we’ll see what happens after that.
“For us, it’s good to have an European driver in there, someone with international TCR experience. He will be a good benchmark for the entire field.
“Naturally, he won’t be at Winton for the pre-season test, however, with the level of international TCR experience, it will not be a problem. The only real thing Rik will need to is the Sydney track layout.”
