Bellcrank vs. Direct Steering
So what do you see as being the pros and cons between bellcrank steering and direct steering? Touring car designers seem to put a lot of effort into optimizing the bellcrank assembly, while pan cars do just fine without it.

better bump-steer characteristics
It probably comes down to the bump steer issue, which would affect TCs much more than pan cars due to the far greater suspension travel.
