GRM announce 2024 TCR line up

Garry Rogers Motorsport (GRM) has finalised its two-car line up for the 2024 Supercheap Auto TCR Australia season with 2023 Toyota 86 Series champion Ryan Casha joining Aaron Cameron at the Victorian team.

Both drivers will pilot Valvoline-backed Peugeot 308 TCR cars this year, with Casha having spent the past week testing Cameron’s vehicle at the GRM Combine.

The young Queenslander will enter his maiden TCR season full of confidence after a stellar year in 2023 – taking out 10 podiums and four wins in the one-make Toyota 86 series where he comfortably took out the title.

He also enjoyed a memorable result at the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour where he enjoyed a runner-up finish in the A2 class.

Ahead of his debut at next month’s Race Sandown, Casha was excited to take another step forward in his racing career.

“I’m stoked to be joining the GRM family alongside a well-established teammate in Aaron Cameron,” Casha said.

“I have an expansive wealth of knowledge at my disposal in Aaron and the team, which I’m sure will prove highly beneficial as we progress throughout the season.

“These cars are a significant contrast to the Toyota 86 from last year, however after spending a couple of days with the team I’m feeling comfortable and super confident that we will be competitive this year.

“Personally, I have high expectations moving into this year, but strong and consistent finishes are my main goal. Everyone at GRM has been extremely welcoming and I’m excited to get under way in a couple of weeks.”

Casha’s teammate will take on the TCR season as one of the more experienced campaigners on the grid, having been one of three drivers to contest every season since the category’s 2019 inception.

In that time, Cameron has finished inside the outright top three on two occasions, while netting 19 podiums and six wins since joining GRM in 2021.

“It’s great to be back with GRM and Valvoline for another season, we were right in the fight for the series until the last race of the season in 2023,” Cameron said.

“We have a very good understanding of the current car with the team and I will be aiming high for the 2024 series in what looks like a very competitive field.

“It’s great to have a new teammate in Ryan come into the Valvoline fold, he has shown some great speed in his run at the GRM combine and will provide some valuable data for the team. I look forward to having the two team Valvoline cars on the podium.

“The new Peugeot will be coming online during the season and I’m really looking forward to being able to compete with a new generation TCR car.”
