Driver, Hyundai i30 TCR
“This is going to be a great opportunity. I love the TCR category, it has competitive racing and some high profile names so it’s going to be great to be a part of it,” said Shiels.
“The calendar, considering the limited racing that we’re having this year, is awesome.
“I grew up in Bathurst, so that is my home track, but you don’t get to race there very often, so I’ve done most of my racing at Sydney Motorsport Park. I know my way around that place, so it will be great to start the season there.
“In terms of results, I really don’t know what to expect. I’ve only driven the car once at a test day. I don’t have any expectations. We’ll just see how we go and try and work our way to the front.”

“I like TCR. It is a good controlled category with a strong price point,” said Kapitsas.
“The different brands of cars appear to be quite similar, so it comes down to a fast driver and good team to put together a strong package.
“We’ve seen some of the other private entries do quite well, so that gives our team a bit of confidence too.
“Brad is an awesome young driver. He can drive, level headed and he is keen, which is what you need from a driver."
