Angelo to return to TCR
Monday 11 November, 2019
Chelsea Angelo will race in TCR Australia at the final round at The Bend.
Chelsea Angelo will return to the carsales TCR Australia Series for this weekend’s season finale at The Bend Motorsport Park with the Shannons Nationals, re-signing with former team Kelly Racing.
Angelo was part of the category’s opening three rounds, driving the Kelly Racing Astra with three 12th places her best results of the nine races.
With Angelo to drive the team’s second Astra on her return, teammate Andre Heimgartner will continue to use the same car Angelo drove during her first stint.
Following the announcement of her second stint, Angelo was thrilled to get back into the new series, as well as having no expectation for the weekend.
“It’s really cool to come back for The Bend,” Angelo said.
“We did the first three rounds, which was cool to be a part of a new, exciting category.
“Since I’ve been out, Andre has taken over and seems to have fixed the problems that the Astras were experiencing. The car should be quick and we’ll have some fun.
“I’ve done a couple of races in the Hyundai Excel class since then too, so I feel that my front wheel drive experience has improved too. Obviously, the TCR cars are a lot more full-on than an Excel, but it has definitely helped me stay sharp.
“Hopefully this is a restart to my TCR career. I’m not sure what is going to happen for 2020, but I want to finish the year off really strong. Right now, there’s nothing confirmed, but I’m open to all options.”
The carsales TCR Australia Series will once again feature qualifying and race one on Saturday, before the final two races of the season on Sunday.
