Tander’s stunning Audi RS 3 TCR revealed for Phillip Island
Garth Tander will contest his maiden carsales TCR Australia Series round aboard a unique blue and orange-coloured Audi RS 3 LMS at Phillip Island.
The brand-new Audi, which only arrived at the Melbourne Performance Centre on Tuesday, has been transformed from its factory silver and red scheme to a distinctive blue and orange livery, with the support of Audi Sport Customer Racing Australia.
This will be Tander’s first race in the carsales TCR Australia Series, and the first time competing in top-level motorsport in a front-wheel drive race car.
