TCR has the ripe demographic.
What is TCR.
The TCR regulations, formulated by former World Touring Car Championship manager Marciello Lotti, were developed in 2014 as a cost-effective touring car racing alternative.
Eligible cars include all front-wheel drive C-Segment hatchbacks or sedans, powered by production–based turbocharged petrol or diesel engines with a capacity of up to 2-litres.
There are currently four internationally-sanctioned TCR Series competing around the world, plus 12 national or regional series utilising the TCR regulations as their main rule book.
Manufacturers with cars currently homologated to TCR Series rules around the world include Audi, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Peugeot, Renault, Subaru and Volkswagen, among others.
TCR Series rules stipulate that fully-fledged factory owned entires are prohibited, however, car manufacturers are encouraged to support its cars entered by professional or private teams.
The category has produced some of the most breath-taking, close and exciting motor racing, thanks to its level playing field amongst a wide-range of car manufacturers from around the globe.

Jimmy Vernon has been addicted to the rush of motorsport from a young age of 7. Originally, Vernon started his motorsport journey on two wheels, competing in Motocross up until the age of 13. It was at 13 that Vernon made the transition from dirt to tarmac as he moved into karting. After 12 months in a go kart, Vernon made the decision to accelerate his career and move into Historic Formula Ford at just 14 years of age.
Vernon spent a few years crafting his skills in the Historic Formula Ford ranks before capturing the eye of Sydney based National Formula Ford team, Listec Race Cars. Vernon raced the 2014 Australian Formula Ford Championship for the Listec team, before a crash at round two left him with fractures in his neck and lower back. This left Vernon on the sidelines for three months, before he jumped back in the car and finished off that season in 11th place.
In 2015, Vernon made the move into the Australian Formula 4 Championship thanks to his trusty partnership with Toolforce Automotive Tool Sales. After showing strong pace and producing strong podium finishes, Vernon rounded out that Championship in 5th place. The strong performances shown in 2015 lead to Vernon being given another fantastic opportunity to race in the 2016 Bathurst 12 hour for MARC Cars Australia. A strong debut in the GT ranks left Vernon the chance to continue his performance into the Australian GT Trophy Championship, but ultimately budget restricted him to only competing in round one.
This then pointed Vernon in the direction of production touring cars as he could see the strength within the category getting stronger and stronger each year. Vernon stepped into a Triple Zero Racing built Toyota 86 to compete in Class D. After missing out on the first round, Vernon went on to clean sweep every race after that in his class. This then saw Vernon win the 2016 New South Wales Production Touring Cars Endurance Championship, along with winning Class D in the Club Championship as well.
After showing fantastic pace in a production car, Vernon was picked up by Bruce Williams Motorsport to compete in the highly competitive Australian Toyota 86 Racing Series in 2017. Vernon went on to win the Toyota 86 Racing Series in 2017, claiming an astonishing run of consistency. Vernon placed on the podium 13 times out of 14 races, the only race to miss the podium was due to a mechanical failure!
This lead to Vernon beginning discussions with McElrea Racing. Vernon signed with the highly successful team to compete in the 2018 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge in Australia.
Vernon has aspirations of climbing the ranks of motorsport and eventually becoming a professional driver. If you want to become part of his journey, then contact us for more information.
