TCR cars complete unique Phillip Island bridge crossing

A group of TCR cars took to the open roads around Phillip Island today ahead of the second round of the new TCR Australia series.

Five different TCR cars took part in the parade across the San Remo bridge, which links Phillip Island with the Victorian mainland.

The stunt was conducted under normal road conditions, with Garth Tander (Audi), Tony D'Alberto (Honda), Chris Pither (Renault), Dylan O'Keeffe (Alfa Romeo) and Chelsea Angelo (Holden) all taking part.

“That was a pretty cool experience,” said D’Alberto.

“I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve driven over that bridge. I first came to a race meeting at Phillip Island long before I was a race driver. My first trip, I would have still been in a baby seat!

“To have the opportunity to drive my Honda TCR car across the San Remo bridge was great. I can’t think of a better way to bring this new class of touring cars to Phillip Island.

“The Phillip Island circuit is one of the best race tracks in the world. We are so lucky to have it here in our own backyard. And these TCR cars are going to be a hoot to drive around here. It’s a fast track, and being turbo-charged front-wheel drive, our cars are going to be pretty wild to watch.”

The second round of the 2019 TCR Australia series kicks off tomorrow.

All of the action from Phillip Island will be broadcast live and free on Motorsport.TV.
