James Moffat will drive a Renault Mégane RS TCR car in the inaugural TCR Australia Series with Garry Rogers Motorsport this year.

The 34-year-old Victorian joins Kiwi Chris Pither in the GRM-owned Méganes, making for one of the fastest and most experienced team pairings in the field.

Moffat, the son of legendary touring car driver Allan, is a highly accomplished driver in his own right, having competed as a full-time Supercars driver from 2011 to 2017. He has driven for a range of teams including Dick Johnson Racing, Nissan Motorsport and, most recently, GRM.

His career highlights include two Supercars victories, one with Nissan in 2013 and one with Tickford Racing at last year’s Gold Coast race. He also finished second in the Bathurst 1000 in 2014 alongside Taz Douglas.

Moffat is the seventh driver confirmed for the 2019 TCR Australia Series, which now includes the likes of Jason Bright, Tony D’Alberto, John Martin and Nathan Morcom.

In total, there will be as many as 18 TCR cars in Australia ahead of the opening round. Series organisers the Australian Racing Group expects that at least 15 of these will compete in the first event in Sydney next month.

Every TCR Australia race across the seven rounds will be broadcast live, free and in HD on SBS.

Tickets for the opening event at Sydney Motorsport Park are now on sale via the Shannons Nationals website. CLICK HERE to secure your tickets and see touring car history being made.
