D’Alberto prepares for TCR debut with support from Honda Australia
Tony D’Alberto will compete in the inaugural TCR Australia Series, a new customer racing category, with the support of Honda Australia in the brand’s multi-award-winning hot hatch, the Civic Type R.
The former Super2 and reigning Australian GT Endurance Champion will drive the Wall Racing-prepared Honda Civic Type R TCR, featuring a Honda-inspired livery, reminiscent of other global Honda motorsport entries from around the world.
In a fitting tribute, D’Alberto will compete with the #50, celebrating Honda’s 50th year in Australia in 2019.
D’Alberto is one of two Honda TCR entries for Wall Racing this year – the 33-year old will be partnered by Australian international racer John Martin.
The Wall Racing-prepared Civic Type R TCR will hit the track for the first time at Winton Motor Raceway today, ahead of the opening round of the TCR Australia Series that will take place at Sydney Motorsport Park on May 17-19.
D’Alberto will be amongst a field of up to 18 cars in the new-to-Australia under 2.0-litre touring car class.
Every TCR Australia race across the seven rounds will be broadcast live, free and in HD on SBS, as well as live streamed around the world on the TCR Australia website.
Tickets for the opening event at Sydney Motorsport Park are now on sale via the Shannons Nationals website.
