Tasmania TCR: Cox wins for the first time – Motorsports

Both Cox (GRM Alpha) and Aaron Cameron (GRM Peugeot) jumped to Paul Sitter’s Holdsworth (ASM Alpha) in the All-Garry Rogers Motorsports battle in the first part of the race.

Cameron then closed the sensational launch from 4th on the grid by sliding the inside of the cox up on turn 6 of the opening lap to take the lead.

The GRM pair ran nose-to-tail on the next 14 laps until Cameron ran wide with a hairpin due to technical issues.

As a result, Cox maintained a relatively comfortable lead and the former production car racer returned to Holdsworth to win the checkered flag up to nine tenths.

“It was a hairy race at first, we were hitting the door,” Cox said. “It was all happening, but that’s what I like about racing. We couldn’t be happier anymore because we finally had a pace.”

Chaz Mostert (Melbourne Performance Center Audi) was promoted to the final spot on the podium as Cameron fell just behind the field. However, it was a pretty lonely race for the supercar ace. He was 3.2 seconds behind the winner and more than two seconds away from his teammate Luke King.

Nathan Morcom was one more ahead of teammates Josh Buchan and Tilton Hyundai driver Brad Shields to take HMO Hyundai’s best in fifth place.

The father and son duo Jason and Ben Bargwana (Burson Peugeot) were split by Tony Dalberto of Wall Racing Honda and finished in 8th and 10th place.

Starting with an early clash between GRM teammates Michael Caruso and Dylan O’keeffe, some of the celebrities in the field have taken some action. Caruso left the race on the spot after tagging the wall, but O’keeffe re-entered and finished in 11th place.

“Dylan tagged the back corner, so I was pushed into the fence pretty hard,” Caruso said. “They are trying to fix it for the next race, hopefully we can get out there. That’s a lot of damage, it’s basically everything behind the rear door. I We’ll see how it goes, it’s a lot of work. “

Jay Hanson (ASM Alpha), Those who were punished for tagging Mostert with a hairpin yesterday, Today was my contact information. The teenager was running seventh when James Moffat (GRM Renault) dropped the wheel into the braking zone, piled it up behind Hanson’s car and took both out of the race.

“I apologize to Jay,” Moffat said. “He and I both ran [Buchan] Up to the hairpin. I felt like Hyundai squeezed me a little. I was in control of it all, and suddenly she braked and took me off. “

The final TCR race of the opening round will take place today at 3:30 pm local time and will be available live for free on Motorsport.tv.
