“It’s great to have our three drivers for the season locked in and ready to go,” said David Wall.
“We felt we had a successful first season. We started with two cars, we now have three in the team full-time and we also supply parts and support from the two private Honda teams (Zac Soutar and Michael Clemente). "
“It is obviously our aim to win the title this year. We finished second in 2019, and the competition is stepping up, but it’s great that two of our drivers have been retained. We know both Tony and John are capable of getting the job done. "
“I’ve been watching Paul’s racing over the past few season, and he does lots of miles in Asia and has been around motorsport for a long time. He did a good job in TCR Asia, and did the Sepang WTCR round last year. He is a welcome addition to the team and will be a good shot within the Pro-Am ranks. "
“With JAS, it’s great to have their ongoing support. At certain events, they’ll bring technicians out to Australia, like they did last year, which is an invaluable asset. We are very pleased to have them in our fold.”
The special TCR Asia Pacific Cup will run at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix on March 12-15 with the championship series kicking off as part of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships on March 27-29 at Sydney Motorsport Park
