Touring Car Masters- Adelaide

Touring Car Masters- Adelaide Parklands Circuit, SA
From Touring Car Masters:

The Touring Car Masters Series is run with technical regulations, as approved by CAMS, comprising touring cars of the pre-1974 era which have been modified in accordance with the CAMS Touring Car Masters technical regulations to maintain a similar appearance to the touring cars of the period.

Steve Mason at Bathurst
2007 series champion and 2013’s Class B winner, Steve Mason, has upgraded his 1966 Shelby Mustang and hopes to take it towards the front of the field in an outright capacity this season.

The Sydneysider scored the most points of any driver – in either class – last season and joined an elite group of two-time TCM champions, but this year wants to be mixing it up on an outright level this year.

“The car has been on a diet and we have been able to take 60-70kg out of it since the end of last season,” Mason explained.

“By running in the open class we can remove weight and run the engine to 7,900RPM as well so we’ve got a bit more power. The only way we could get more weight out of the car is by putting a jockey behind the wheel – but it’s certainly going to be an improvement.
