I'd say more likely he is just driving someone else's car.

The Torana wasn't his anyway wasn't it?

I thought the Torana was now owned by Wilson.

**** that looks great, and more like period livery than most.

I believe the car builder owns it?

A couple of the ute racers getting into the category. Should be good for racing, and presumably panel beaters.

Turns out that the transporter was owned by Wilson, not by Bowe.

What's the previous team leader from Wilson up to now?

Might we see a court case?

Ryan Hansfords new Torana looks like a sports sedan. The flares on the front guards look like they have had the Texeco Sierra treatment from 1987. That is not how they came out of the factory as a L34 or A9X. This class is becoming a joke. At least make it look right.

The flares are much higher on the car than stock, the ride height if very low. But then the previous car had massively pumped/flared standard guards to fit the allowed width wheels under it - part of the process to equalise the cars.

One of those things where they say "we need to do it this way" while sneaking some advantages along the way. I'd compare it to BMW trying to get the M8 GTE homologated with a very low ride height (didn't work), or Ford pushing the nose of the Mustang Supercar down (did work).

But while I have reconciled to TCM doing all sorts of things 'wrong' in the name of expediency (eg Chev motors in Toranas), I do agree: at least make it look right!

The TCM cars are logbooked as Sports Sedans. It's not a Group N or a historic category.


Modified retro!

I hadn't noticed the front flares until you mentioned it, but the rear flares didn't look right on TV last night either, looked too roundy, almost like MK1 Escort bubble flares.

Where are all the XD Flacons that were being built to debut in the early rounds of last season???? The Zukanovic car looked pretty plain on TV last night…….

On that note, it seems strange to see the XD without flares even if they don't really need them for 8" wheels. Seems the Torana doesn't on the rear either.
