CarMechanica, powered by Mobil 1, is proud to announce signing on as the new naming rights partner to the #24 Wall Racing TCR Honda Civic Type-R.
This is a great partnership for CarMechanica. TCR is not only one of the fastest growing and most diverse categories in Australian motorsport, the series has demonstrated strong appeal with the younger demographic. The popularity of the recent SimRacing Series and TCR’s own fan research clearly reflects this.
The similarity of the race cars to the road cars makes TCR relatable. More so, the Honda Civic Type-R – it’s the hot hatch of the moment and perfectly represents the types of performance vehicle this younger demographic owns and drives.
When it comes to servicing and repairs, online is their world. All their searching and research is done online. For them, booking everything from a pizza, Uber or vehicle service online is second nature. All of which makes this generation of discerning vehicle owners one of CarMechanica’s key audiences.
Driven by John Martin, the #24 Civic Type-R is one of the two front running TCR Hondas prepared by Wall Racing. This professional motorsport outfit has several championships to its credit, including the Australian GT Championship (2009 and 2010) and Australian Sportscar Championship (2009).
Wall Racing currently run a number of entries in the Australian Porsche Carrera Cup Championship – which they won in 2017. The driving force behind the team, David Wall also has V8 Supercar and Bathurst 12-Hour podiums to his credit. Without doubt, Wall Racing have the car, the expertise, the drivers and the pedigree necessary to run at the front of the highly competitive TCR championship.
With support from CarMechanica and Mobil 1, combined with Wall Racing and John Martin’s drive and determination, you can be certain of seeing a lot of car #24 in victory lane throughout the 2020 TCR Australia Touring Car Series.
