Audi GT driver Rik Breukers will drive the Audi RS 3 TCR car for Melbourne Performance Centre in the opening round of the 2019 TCR Australia Series at Sydney Motorsport Park this month.

The 20 year old Dutch driver has secured the one-off drive, giving the inaugural TCR Australia race a distinctly international feel.

Breukers currently drives for leading GT squad WRT, competing in an Audi R8 LMS in the Blancpain Endurance GT Championship.

He recently won the Dubai 24 Hours and is also a two-time class winner of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona.

Breukers has competed in numerous TCR events across the world, giving him a great head start compared to many of the ‘TCR rookies’ that he will face at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The deal for Breukers to compete at Sydney Motorsport Park has been brokered by Ryan McLeod, owner of MARC Cars Australia and a keen advocate of TCR racing.

Due to clashing commitments, Breukers will not be available to test with the majority of the other TCR cars at Winton on May 6. MPC will still take the Audi to the test day with another MARC Cars driver taking the driving duties, 19 year old Victorian Aaron Cameron.

Every TCR Australia race across the seven rounds will be broadcast live, free and in HD on SBS.

2019 TCR Australia Series Sporting Regulations released
Unique pit lane procedures to add spice to TCR Australia Series
Race distance, tyre allocation, points structure and BOP explained

As the first batch of TCR Series cars arrive on Australian soil, category organisers have revealed a host of innovations aimed at boosting fan engagement and broadcast flow in the sporting regulations ahead of the Sydney Motorsport Park season opener in two weeks time.

Based on international TCR competitions, the race weekend format and procedures ensure race fans and free-to-air television audiences will enjoy back-to-back TCR action and minimal down time.

TCR Australia teams will have 30 minutes at the conclusion of Race 2 to before Race 3 starts on Sunday. Once the 10 minute Parc Ferme conditions have been lifted after Race 2, teams will have just 20 minutes allocated for repair time before the pit lane closes for the commencement of Race 3. In this period, the cars will remain at a 45 degree angle on the pit apron allowing fans and viewers to be closer to the action than ever before when repairs and adjustments are made to the cars ahead of the final race.

Teams will not need to refuel between Races 2 and 3, with cars having the capacity to complete both races on a single tank.

The round format for the inaugural TCR Australia Series will see teams hit the track for two 30-minute practice sessions on Friday, one 30-minute qualifying session and one 30-minute race on Saturday. Sunday’s races are also 30-minutes in length, using a progressive grid structure throughout.

Teams will have access to 10 new dry Michelin hard-compound slick tyres for each round. Cars will be required to be fitted with a full new set for qualifying, with a further two new tyres required for Races 1 and 2.

The first two races of the weekend will receive 40 points for victory, while Race 3 will carry further emphasis with 50 points on offer for the winner and larger hauls down the field. The fastest qualifier will also receive two championship points for their efforts, on top of the $1000 cash prize on offer for the Astrontech Pole Award.

TCR Australia will run under the same technical regulations and Balance of Performance (BOP) recognised for all TCR competitions worldwide. As per regulations, BOP will be assessed constantly and changes can occur from round to round. A host of data will be compiled with TCR Series data globally to calculate any BOP movements, if deemed necessary.

TCR Australia’s Sporting Regulations have been developed in conjunction with the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS).

Round 1 of the 2019 TCR Australia Series is the headlining act at the opening event of the Shannons Nationals, to be held at Sydney Motorsport Park on March 17-19.

The most recent batch of cars have arrived in Melbourne and Sydney, including two Volkswagen Golfs that were recently raced in Malaysia, two Subaru WRX STIs and two Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloces into Melbourne, as well as a Honda Civic that has arrived in Sydney.

The pair of Opel Astras and Renault Mégane RS TCR are expected to land in Melbourne in the coming days ahead of the Winton test on Monday.

All races will be broadcast live, free and in high definition on SBS, with a live stream available worldwide on the TCR Australia website.

Tickets for the opening event at Sydney Motorsport Park are now on sale via the Shannons Nationals website. CLICK HERE to secure your tickets and see touring car history being made …

 

QUOTES
Liam Curkpatrick
Category Manager, TCR Australia

“Putting the 2019 TCR Australia Series Sporting Regulations together has been a joint effort between Series Management and CAMS. There was a lot of effort put into creating an exciting format for teams to compete under and for fans to watch,” said Liam Curkpatrick.

“One of the unique parts of the round formats is the short time in between Races 2 and 3. Cars must stay in pit lane in between these races with crew only being able to work on the cars for a short window before pit exit opens for Race 3.

“This brings the teams into the forefront and in public view getting the cars turned around in time. It adds another element to the show and is something very different to what we are used to. I’m confident that the fans will find this very exciting.

“From the outset it was important that we make the racing entertaining for the teams, the fans at the track and those watching the live SBS TV broadcast. We are pleased with what has been put together and look forward to getting the series started in Sydney in two weeks.”

NEW CO-DRIVER ON BOARD AS SESKS 🇱🇻 PREPARES FOR SECOND ERC JUNIOR PRIZE DRIVE 🇮🇹🌎

NEW CO-DRIVER ON BOARD AS SESKS 🇱🇻 PREPARES FOR SECOND ERC JUNIOR PRIZE DRIVE 🇮🇹🌎

Mārtiņš Sesks is gearing up for his second prize drive in the FIA European Rally Championship.

Latvian teenager Sesks won two ERC starts in a Motorsport Italia-run ŠKODA Fabia R5 for claiming the Pirelli-supported ERC3 Junior title in 2018.

After finishing a fine third overall and second in ERC1 Junior on his R5 debut on the gravel-based Rally Liepāja in late May, Sesks is preparing to tackle his first asphalt event in a top-of-the-range R5.

Ahead of next week’s Rally di Roma Capitale, Sesks, who will compete under the LMT Autosporta Akadēmija banner, said: “There is everything on this rally from nice curvy roads to small roads that in a road car it’s not possible to drive it through normally and we are flying through at more than 140kph. It’s really extreme but that means you need to keep focused all the time on your pacenotes and your driving needs to be perfect.

“I haven’t done much Tarmac this year but I hope to be back in shape after my test on Tuesday. I am comfortable on Tarmac and I hope I will be in the R5 for the first time.”

Rally di Roma Capitale is the first event where Sesks will count on new co-driver Uldis Briedis, who has replaced Krišjānis Caune.

“My coach will be my co-driver and we will see how it goes for us,” said Sesks, the ERC3 Junior winner in Rome last season. “He taught me the pacenotes I am driving to now so from the pacenotes understanding side there should be no problem because we are thinking equally. I hope it will be good.”

🇬🇧 Our ŠKODA Fabia R5 beast is ready for offical Tuesday test! 😎
And different from FIA Junior WRC , where usually we get Nr.76 😂 We will have Nr.5 🤘

Campedelli chosen to give new Fiesta R5 Evo ERC debut

*Rapid Italian gets M-Sport’s latest challenger for Rally di Roma Capitale *Previous winner has pace to fight for another victory against European elite *Campedelli: “I’m so excited, it’s a big chance that M-Sport gives me”

Simone Campedelli will have the honour of giving M-Sport’s all-new Ford Fiesta R5 its FIA European Rally Championship debut when he lines up for Rally di Roma Capitale from 19-21 July.

Winner of the event in 2017, the Italian competes under the Orange 1 M-Sport Rally Team banner in the Italian championship (CIR). Having won the famous Targa Florio in Sicily back in May in M-Sport’s previous-generation Fiesta R5, Campedelli will use its replacement to chase ERC and CIR points on the asphalt-only Rally di Roma Capitale and will be among the contenders for victory.

“I’m so excited,” said Campedelli, 32. “It’s a big chance and Iam so appreciative that M-Sport gives me this opportunity. We’ve created a good partnership with them, and they really believe in us and they really believe in the Italian market. They are close to me and they trust in me. For example, we could have continued with the older version of the car, but they said ‘no, we are building a new car for you’. I want to say thank you to Malcolm Wilson and Maciej Woda for putting the effort in.”

Campedelli is due to get his first turn behind the wheel of his new Fiesta R5 during a private test on Monday before he takes part in the official test on Tuesday.

“I hope to find immediately the right confidence with the car,” said Campedelli. “From Malcolm’s side he told me straight, ‘Simone, the car is quicker, of that we have no doubt, you must use it, we are confident you can make a strong performance and we would really like to push you in the new car.’”

Of his target for Italy’s ERC counter, Campedelli said: “It’s a rally I like, and we can be quick, but we also have a new car and we must remember this. For sure it will be a hard challenge against the ERC drivers who can make an impressive pace with a really low knowledge of the stages and know how to fight in all kinds of conditions. But we also have to take care about the Italian championship.”

Based on the Ford Fiesta ST-Line and powered by an EcoBoost engine, M‑Sport has worked closely with the Ford Motor Company to “ensure the new Fiesta R5 provides a big step forward in terms of pace and performance”, according to the car builder.

Meanwhile, Rally di Roma Capitale, which signals the start of the second half of the 2019 ERC season, begins at the famousCastel Sant’Angelo in central Rome at 19h00 CET on Friday 19 July with the finish scheduled for Rome’s seaside retreat of Ostia on the evening of Sunday 21 July. In between are 16 stages over a competitive distance of 203.40 kilometres.

Spectacle and great figures for the 7th Rally di Roma Capitale

A high-level rally with varied and complete stages. An unrivalled setting from Castel Sant’ Angelo to Ostia Lido with the closing show of the “Arena ACI Roma”. Rendina: “A strong team that wants to grow thanks to ACI and the Municipality. Maurizio Battista Testimonial of the event

Rome July 10th, 2019. The details of the 7th Rally di Roma Capitale, the event that will be the 5th round of the European Championship and Italian Rally from July 17th to 21st , have been unveiled. This sporting event will involve the whole area of the Capital but also the province of Frosinone and Ostia. Promotion of the territory through the spectacle of rally that is close to people. Everyone will be involved either along the roads of the rally or through the intense programme of TV, radio and web coverages to broadcast every moment of the electrifying weekend in the Rome area. This is the essence of the event devised by 2014 Rally Production World Champion Max Rendina, that will have its headquarters in Fiuggi, will start from the heart of Rome, Castel Sant’Angelo before moving to the stages that will take place in Ciociaria for two motorsport days that will reach their conclusion with the final show of the “Arena ACI Roma” that is a double challenge on the stage in front of the sea.
Sixteen stages for a total of 203,40 competitive Km on a total liason of 849,72 Km split in two days: day one will feature some very technical stages on twisty roads, while technical perfection will make the difference in the more flowing stages on day two.

A packed “Giuseppe Spizzuoco” room at the Automobile Club d’Italia headquarters has welcomed the introductory meeting to the rally Roma Capitale in the presence of Max Rendina and Motorsport Italia managers, Automobile Club D’Italia’s President Angelo Sticchi Damiani, ACI Sport’s General Director Marco Rogano, Rally ACI Sport Commission’s President Daniele Settimo, Rome Municipality Sports Depute Andrea Pesce, Giuliana Di Pillo, Pico’s Major Ornella Carnevale, delegates from the areas staging the Rally and the Testimonial of Rally di Roma Capitale Maurizio Battista.

Max Rendina Motorsport Italia: -“Thank you. This year we organized an even bigger event and, thanks to the partnership with the Municipality and ACI Rome, we could organize a better stage in Ostia. A staff of more than 1000 people plus 200 volunteers will work hard on this rally. This is the second most important race in Italy and we want to grow. In Ostia, a big event in the event will involve a test drive for manufacturers, karting races with guest stars like Giancarlo Fisichella and Emanuele Pirro. The exhibition of WRC+ cars from the WRC rally scenes and the Police’s Lamborghini, our testimonial and a lot of exciting appointments are on the menu of the event. We devoted our full commitment to this rally as always and we hope it will be appreciated”-.

Angelo Sticchi Damiani, Automobile Club d’Italia’s President: -“The Rally di Roma Capitale won a tough challenge especially due to the difficulties connected to the size of a city like Rome. The success of Rendina lays in the big presence. As the Federation, we try to showcase our talents in these International events. We brought back sports among the main aspects of ACI, the Federation that has a long and prestigious history and that nowadays organizes directly a Formula 1 Grand Prix and a World Rally Championship’s round. The Federation ACI shows its value also through the important confirmations obtained internationally. Automobile Club d’Italia got to the heart of the sport, but its activity goes beyond sport. This has to be clear. A big thanks to events like the Rally organized by Motorsport Italia that brought an international event to our Capital”-.

Andrea Pece, Sports Department of the Municipality: -“We feel like members of a big family, as citizens and fans. The city is close to the event as the whole territory and this is quite a clear synergy”-.

Marco Rogano ACI Sport SpA General Director: -“The Rally di Roma Capitale, an event devised by the farsighted idea of Rendina, grew and is an important appointment. It involves people and takes place among the people that can enjoy this spectacle from a close perspective. A European Championship is an important event and this is confirmed by the figures shown, the high-level staff and its complexity. Such an efficient organization deserves to be highly successful”-.

Daniele Settimo Rally Commission President:-“The rally di Roma Capitale is a big event and the European setting raises further its profile. I personally know that stages and, due to their high technical level, they could be part of a World Rally Championship round. Our Federation is proud of this organization”-.

Ornella Carnevale Pico’s Major: “ Our Municipality suits particularly the rally. We have been living and organizing rally rounds for a long time. We are great at this and our roads are already set up thanks to our associations. Important interventions to increase safety and spectacle have taken place. We are very fond of our rally and kept its name within the important context of the Rally di Roma Capitale. We are ready to welcome all the fans that will join us here”-.

Giuliana Di Pillo President of the X Municipio Roma: “This is a public event. That is how we defined the Rally di Roma Capitale, an event that brings a lot of people to our territory. The Arena ACI Roma will be in Ostia’s center among the people. We wished this strongly and I personally fought for this event in our city. I am happy because this is going the first time of this new configuration. We are waiting for a lot of people. Ostia is ready to welcome all the rally fans”-.

Gianluca Marotta, Race Director: “Spectacle and promotion of the territory are two important aspects combined in the organization by Motorsport Italia. Safety will be paramount and several staffs like technicians, race directors and people working at the event devoted the highest care to this aspect. This is quite a complex machinery featuring high numbers. This is why we are also grateful to all the involved Armed Forces, and particularly the Questura di Roma e Frosinone, Polizia Stradale di Roma e Frosinone, Carabinieri and the Polizia Municipale di Roma Capitale”-.
