Milligan to compete in TCR Series at Australian Grand Prix

Track Tec Racing has confirmed that it will enter two Audi RS 3s in the inaugural carsales TCR Asia Pacific Cup at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix in March.

The New Zealand-based team has secured its countryman Jack Milligan to drive alongside Dutchman Stan van Oord in a two-car effort for the Albert Park street track event.

Milligan, 23, is a former New Zealand Toyota 86 Championship winner, and recently made his race debut in the Audi TCR car, competing in endurance race at Highlands Motorsport Park last week.

Milligan’s drive with Track Tec Racing at the Grand Prix event will be his first official TCR-sanctioned race meeting. He is also the first New Zealand driver to be confirmed on the Albert Park grid.

While it will be his official TCR debut, he will benefit from the experience of van Oord. The 22-year-old Dutchman has competed in various TCR races across Europe, including winning back-to-back championships in his local series in the Netherlands, driving a Cupra TCR. 

The two Track Tec Audis will venture over to Australian shores next month ahead of the TCR Asia Pacific Cup that will be held at the Albert Park street circuit as part of the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix on March 12-15.
