They've capped the amount of XD's that are allowed to be run though, and are excluding people from wanting to run the equivalent GM-H product.

Therefore it seems like only a few are allowed to challenge themselves

I personally don't like the idea of XD's running. TCM has always been 60s and 70s cars, and even though the XD started in 79 it was still being made in the early 80s.

Are Johnson and Bowe good for TCM?

Johnson seems to have only entered as his only hope of getting a National title.

Wait, you're telling me a bloke has entered a series in the hope of winning the title? Well knock me down with a feather.

I've clearly been competing for the wrong reasons then.

Johnson was a failure as a Supercar driver, his father said so in his book.

Notice he hasn’t been an Enduros co driver

And notice he didn’t do much in his Toyota 86 drives

So looking round for where he could possibly beat a field of amateurs he chose TCM. He obtains the best car, has good sponsorship and then surprise surprise he wins his national title.

This is a farce and detracts from the fun that TCM should be.......

I read the same book, and will read that paragraph again.

I don't believe he branded him a failure. Perhaps you should shake that chip from your shoulder?

Steven Johnson's only "failure" (for want of a better word) was that he was too loyal to DJR, he could have had his pick of a number of drives elsewhere in the mid-2000s if he wanted.

When you come SJ's results to that of his teammates over the years, you'll see he was anything but a failure in the main game.

The likes of Johnson, Bowe, Seton, Richards etc... possibly are 'too good' for TCM, but isn't the whole category in many ways built on the heritage these drivers were a part of and celebrating that era? And many of the drivers on the grid i'm sure are attracted to the class with the likes of Johnson and Bowe on the grid, rather than turned off because it might lesson their chance of a win (Isn't that why they have three classes in TCM anyway?)

yeah I am not sure how that is justifiable.

And he admitted to sandbagging this year so as not to get more rev penalties!

I see that Garwood's Torana is for sale. Only $185,000.

http://www.my105.com/ListingDetails/id/19653/latest/1

And includes his TCM franchise.

Would indicate he is another to leave TCM

Is he afraid of coming XD?

TCM really needs to have a good hard look at itself , before only Bowe and Johnson left.

Car costs are completely out of control.

Well it is probably cheaper to run in the Dunlop series than in TCM the way TCM costs are going.......
