HMO Customer Racing, Hyundai Motorsport’s official Australian importer of its successful TCR machinery, is making plans to grow from two cars to three, or possibly four, after its success in the inaugural season that saw Will Brown claim the title honours.
While the makeup of the driver line-up is not officially locked away, team owner Barry Morcom has his sights set on entering more cars if the right deals could be put together.
“The sixth car has been ordered and is going to come into Australia around February next year,” said Morcom.
“The idea is that we will use this as a spare car, just in case one car gets damaged and can’t be turned around in time for the next event.
“We are geared up to run three cars. At a pinch we could do four, but we are comfortably ready to run three, and that is the intention for next year. If we can get a couple of deals across the line, we will have three cars at a minimum on the grid.”
The HMO Customer Racing team was the dominant force in this year’s TCR Australia Series, with Brown claiming seven race wins, fifteen podiums and nine fastest race laps.
Nathan Morcom added to the team’s success with victory in the last race of the year, finishing fourth in the points standings and helping the Sydney-based squad win the team’s title.
HMO Customer Racing will hold a ride day for fans and followers of the team on Tuesday 17 December, with demand for places on the day so strong that the team has been forced to add a second car to the day.
Already close to 50 guests will get the chance to sample a ride from the passenger seat of the team’s Hyundai i30 N TCR car, driven by Brown and Morcom.
