Photo Gallery: Shannons Nationals Queensland Raceway 2019
With the Shannons Nationals/TCR Australia round now complete, so is our annual Queensland Raceway double-header for 2019.
The back to back Supercars and TCR rounds gave us a fairly direct comparison between the two headline tin-top categories in Australia.
Like it or not, Supercars is clearly the benchmark for Australian motorsport. In terms of crowd numbers, TV audiences, sponsorship spend, even manufacturer involvement, there really isn’t anything else that compares. That said, even though TCR is still in its infancy here in Australia, being that its just halfway through its inaugural season, the growth we’ve seen already in just a few short months suggests we’ll have serious competition between the two soon.
Now that’s not a bad thing, the competition will be good for the sport. Competition leads to innovation and that can only mean better results for teams, sponsors and fans alike. I’m personally very keen to see where it leads.
Anyway, that’s two cents on the current state of motorsport in Australia.
