STEVEN Johnson will make his highly anticipated return to Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters this weekend – but it won’t come in his popular XD Falcon.

The three-time series champion will be aboard the Russell Hancock-owned Ford Mustang Trans Am at Sandown.

Previously raced by Cameron Mason, the Mustang is among a 21-car entry list for Round 4 of the season.

Johnson has not featured in TCM since the opening round at Sydney Motorsport Park in March with the famous family focusing its budget on Steven’s son Jett’s blossoming career which currently is centred around the Turtle Wax Trans Am Series.

Another familiar face popping up at Sandown will be Adam Bressington, who will slot into the #95 Whiteline Racing Chevrolet Camaro SS as Michael Almond continues his recovery from a hefty crash at Townsville.

Also caught up in that accident was the Valiant Pacer of Cameron Tilley, which has been entered, although a final decision on its participation is still to come.

At the halfway stage of the season, there’s just two points between title contenders John Bowe (Holden Torana SL/R 5000) and Ryan Hansford (Holden Torana A9X).
