The Kumho Tyre V8 Touring Car Series

This touring car category gives the perfect place for ex-V8 Supercars to continue their long and successful lives after they finish in the V8 Supercars Championship and Development Series.

Run to the same technical platform, the category is ideal for young drivers wanting a taste of V8s or veterans and businessmen racers with the passion for these cars, many of which are run in the same colours as carried by some of the biggest stars in V8 Supercar racing.
