“It’s very exciting. It’s all a bit last minute, but I’m genuinely looking forward to the weekend,” said Michels.
“The amount of hype around the category has been unreal, so to have an opportunity to be on the grid is just amazing.
“I’ve done a couple of races in a Hyundai TCR in New Zealand, so I have a few miles in a TCR car, but they were different circumstances, completely different tyre, so this weekend will still be a steep learning curve.
“The opportunity to be a part of Wall Racing in this category is awesome, so I want to soak it all up, enjoy the experience and see how we go.”

“At this stage, it’s just a one-off, but we are keen to see how Jordan goes in our car and the series,” said David Wall.
“He has been racing a TCR car in New Zealand and has been doing well in the endurance series over there.
“We met Jordan at the launch of TCR New Zealand. He had a long discussion with (Wall Racing team manager) David Fyfe and we all felt that he’d be a good addition for our team.
“Our team is looking forward to Queensland Raceway. I feel like that if we can get the car right, the rest will take care of itself. John Martin has a pep in his step after The Bend, Tony D’Alberto has a point to prove and it’s always nice to have some fresh blood in the team."
