Terry S should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
For this weekends Ipswich round I notice that 7 of the 22 starters are Torana V8's. That is basically one third.

Does this indicate it is just becoming Formula Torana.

Just replicating the era the cars are celebrating as they keep pushing the eligible car window into the late 70s

How long until VB Commodore's and XD Falcon's can compete?

Just replicating what happened about a decade ago when the LJs were filling Group C fields around the country...I called it the Torana Trophy...

As a Torana fan I'm loving the MCM !

I recall when there was one, or maybe two, in the early days. Now there's heaps.

I guess teams are once again realizing what an awesome package (power to weight) they could be.

It goes in waves doesnt it? The Mustang was the car to have in Mr Bowe's hands, and the field bought/built Mustangs. Mr Bowe switches to a Torana, is instantly competitive and the field follows.

I would really like to see Mr Bowe in a suitably built 911 with all the trimmings..

Don't worry about the rich mans VW, rather see Mr Bowe in a Falcon Hardtop!

In the last race yesterday why were Johnson and Bowe so uncompetitive and only finished 3rd and 4th?

Is this due ro success penalties?

Johnson mucked up the first turn and dropped a bunch of spots didn't he?

On the TCM website I noticed the official results for the third TCM race at Ipswich include a couple of "strange" cars:

Mercury Camaro
Ford Firebird
Ford Torana

The TCM website is not very good in general.

If you click on the "View All Results" that's below the current series leaderboard on every page it takes you to the championship standings for the 2014 season...

That's what happens when you can't find enough old parts for your car, and have to make do with parts from other manufacturers......

Scary to think its 37 years since the Rock incident...

If the TCM mob decide that XD Falcons can run, and presumably VB Commodores can run, it is a whole generation shift for the current field...
