Touring Car Masters
Touring Car Masters is Australia’s top series for retro Touring Cars from the classic period of muscle car competition between 1964 and 1979.
The series, more 'retro' than 'historic', brings together some of the most iconic brands and models from Muscle Car history and creates a racing series full of unique sounds, sights and an on-track product like no other. 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. TCM contests seven rounds across Australia, a majority of them running with the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
