Kumho Tyre V8 Touring Cars
Outright: 2016 Kumho Tyre V8 Touring Car Series
The Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series grew from the seed of an idea that the AU Falcon and VT/VX Commodore V8 Supercars were to become ineligible to compete in the Supercars Super2 Series. With so many ‘de-registered’ cars looking for a place to race, the V8TC Series was created in 2008.
Not only does the series provide a home for ‘retired’ and/or historically significant Supercars, it enables teams/drivers to continue to race these iconic and exciting race cars, and just as importantly, it opens up another entry point for young drivers looking to forge a career in Australia’s most popular form of racing.
