Ben Bargwanna and Burson Auto Parts are back!

Rising star Ben Bargwanna and Burson Auto Parts will return to the TCR Australia Series in 2022. Bargwanna will again link up with Garry Rogers Motorsport, competing in one of the team’s race winning Peugeot 308 TCRs.

“Burson Auto Parts is very excited to continue our successful involvement in the TCR Australia Series in 2022 with one of the series’ most exciting young drivers. Given Ben’s pace in 2021 and ability to compete in the Burson Auto Parts Peugeot at the front of the field, we are confident that he will have a great year ahead. Add the support of GRM and Jason Bargwanna to the team and we are well positioned for a cracking season,” stated Anthony Hughes, General Manager -Marketing, Burson Auto Parts.

It follows a successful campaign last year where Bargwanna finished 10th and won the Michelin Cup as top placed rookie at the season’s conclusion. He scored his best result at the Bathurst finale, achieving his maiden TCR Australia pole position and podium in the opening race, finishing a narrow second to GRM teammate Aaron Cameron. “For 2022 we want to challenge for regular top 5’s, take podiums and win races,” said Ben.

Bargwanna will lead the Burson Auto Parts attack on the TCR Australia Series, as his father Jason will step back from driving and take on a Team Manager role where he will fulfill a mentor role to Ben. “The program has come together perfectly over the last two seasons with the support from our partners in Burson Auto Parts. Their continued commitment into the new season allows us to all move to the next stage and challenge for the title. Ben has showed that he became stronger during last season and his on-track decision making and off track work ethic led to some great speed and strong results.”

Burson Auto Parts Racing has launched the car 71 livery ahead of opening round of the TCR Australia Series that will be held this weekend at Symmons Plains Raceway, Tasmania for the second running of the AWC Race Tasmania.
