There's Ford and Holden, of course, but also classic US-Muscle like Mustang and Camaro, Valliants, Chryslers and even Porsche's.
TCM cars are loud, fast, sideways and exciting. The drivers are heroes and include some of the most famous names in the sport, including Bathurst legends Jim Richards and John Bowe, two-time champion Steven Johnson and regular challengers like Adam Bressington, Ryan Hansford, Jason Gomersall, Marcus Zukanovic and more.

Kumho Super3 Series
The Kumho Super3 Series (formerly known as the Kumho V8 Touring Car Series) provides a competition home for genuine ex-V8 Supercars.
Many of the cars are historically significant race cars with an increasing number running in original livery, and fans can identify with their successes in the hands of some of the sport’s greatest drivers and teams.
The drivers are a mixture of the next ‘up and coming’ stars of the series, to experienced hands who have stepped away from professional driving, and enthusiastic amateurs keen to be involved in the sport. The result of this mixture is highly entertaining racing throughout the field.
Many of the cars are run by professional teams with considerable experience in the sport, including Brad Jones Racing, Eggleston Motorsport, Matt Stone Racing, Image Racing, MW Motorsport and more. The Kumho Super3 Series V8’s are crowd pleasers: Real Holden & Ford racing with an eclectic mix of cars and drivers, and a ‘where have these guys been’ factor!
