In 1991 the Winfield GT-R (Skaife) reached 293km/h along Conrod Straight,
similar speeds to the V8 Supercars of today.
The 1992 Tooheys Bathurst 1000 was stopped due to torrential rain and
multiple crashes. The results were compiled using the 143rd completed lap,

The Fastest Lap of the race was -- #1 Mark Skaife -- 2:16.47

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you

else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
