The Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series will pick up where it left off after an epic round at Queensland Raceway, series leader Tony D’Alberto headlining the field of 18 as the Victorian looks to edge closer to a maiden TCR title.

Rounding out the list of categories is the Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia (Motorsport Australia GT Championship) where 14 teams will do battle over two one-hour races – Shane van Gisbergen and Prince Jefri Ibrahim likely to continue their entertaining dual with The Bend Motorsport Park’s Yasser Shahin and Garth Tander.
