Not many names that have been in it, let alone at the pointy end, for as long and consistently as Mr Bowe

When you have the best weapon, and you give him the best car in the field, the results aren't exactly surprising. I'm not taking away at all from JB's talent or ability, but he is a class above most in that field.

Most certainly.

One of the best drivers seen in this country and extremely unlucky to not have a few AGPs against his name.

The CAMS regs for TCM include “success adjustments” basically a reduction in allowable RPM of 100 rpm for each race win.

Is this process achieving its aims?

If it is how come Bowe wins so many races?

He must be running on very low revs but still wins.

Because, even despite his advanced years, John Bowe was one of our top 5 best drivers in Australia for 15-20 years.

The majority of TCM runners are part-timers and while good drivers, not to the standard of what Bowe was in the past. It's not surprise that the likes of Steven Johnson, Bowe and previously Glenn Seton & Andrew Miedecke were doing so much of the winning in the class

Given Bowe has been a regular in the series for nearly 10 years and always in a top line car (as opposed to Jim Richards who's Falcon and Javelin haven't always been on front-running pace), his stats are hardly surprising.

Interesting comments in here about the XD and the current non-allowance of a VB Commodore
https://www.speedcafe.com/2017/12/12...tang-2018-tcm/

While I don't disagree with the notion behind not wanting the VB in at this stage, i'm not sure how "fair" it is to open the eligibility date up to one marque but not another.

And I guess it won't be long before people are wanting to run RX7's and Bluebird's as well?

So Johnson wins the title with probably the best car in the field and still he wants more....

Is this greed, wanting to beat the field he has already beaten?

Surely a freeze would be better for majority of competitors.

Why can't Mr Johnson and team challenge themselves with an unknown, like Mr Richards has done with the Javellin?
