Don't know - personally haven't seen the entry list but then they had nearly that many at Winton last year so maybe it's a track that more of them like?

Maybe not given the carnage we saw at Winton in last year's TCM

Somewhere between and including Group Nc Cars to anything slower than the front runners.

27 TCM cars for Winton this weekend. http://touringcarmasters.com.au/news...DS-WINTON-GRID


What's happened to Rusty French and his tcm mustang. He hasn't raced it this year? Has he retired from driving?

He had his De Tomaso Pantera out a few weeks back.

I don't think he's hung the helmet up yet.

Even so, Bowe and Johnson are heavily restricted on rpm and weight IIRC.

There is no need to spend $100,000 on engines when Johnson and Bowe are making do with milder engine builds and still in front...

That suggests it's the driving of "the rest" that needs to be improved! But given they are amateurs racing for fun, who can afford to spend up, then they are keeping the tuning workshops in business.

Newer, more iconic, more market relevant, unique in that series, strengthening the links to his father’s successes in a similar model of car... lots of reasons to do it...

The boxy XD might not be super special on aero however, although with Mr Lacroix back at the mothership his father part owns, some magic in this space may be possible also...

Clever ducting and cooler placement will go a long way.

Shock horror! Race car driver wants faster race car...


As GTR said more likely to do with the XD obviously holding a special place in the Johnson family compared to a Mustang.

Although next year the Mustang will be more relevant to the team.

Mr Williams did very well not to clean bowl the front half of the field.

So what happened to the 31 car field entered for Winton?
Looking at Natsoft shows about 20 cars for each race.
