Fabian Coulthard has confirmed he will return to TCR Australia for the next round at Phillip Island, driving for Wall Racing.
Coulthard who made his debut in the series at Symmons Plains last month will be back behind the wheel of the Wall Racing-prepared Honda Civic Type R TCR.
The Kiwi put together a solid performance in his first event in the championship, leaving the event 13th in the point standings, despite battling electrical issues in the car which affected the Sunday races.
“It’s awesome that I’ve got a second chance in the Stan Sport Honda TCR at Phillip Island,” Coulthard said.
“Symmons Plains was certainly a baptism of fire for me. It was my first race in a front-wheel-drive race car, so there was a lot to get my head around, but I felt that I adapted pretty quick. A few electrical gremlins held us back, but we certainly have the speed to be at the pointy end.
“The Hondas have proven to be really strong at Phillip Island in the past. They have a heap of data from down there too, so I’m confident that we can be competitive.
“Like most drivers will say, Phillip Island is one of the best race tracks we have here in Australia, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the Honda goes around there.”
Stan Sport will again back Coulthard’s Honda entry.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to have Fabian continue to represent Stan Sport in the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series. Fabian is an extremely talented driver and a brilliant ambassador for our new partnership with SpeedSeries. We can’t wait to see him on the track in Phillip Island,” Stan Sport director Ben Kimber said.
Josh Buchan leads the championship ahead of Zac Soutar, Tony D’Alberto, Jordan Cox and Nathan Morcom
