Moffat 1969 Trans Am Mustang in-car footage. Fantastic noise!
Allan Moffat's immortal 1969 Trans Am Mustang is one of the greats of
Australian motorsport. Winning 101 of 151 races it was also one of the most
successful in our nations racing history. Here is some in car footage from
the Gold Coast 600 Legends demonstration event, taking it easy as there is
a lot of concrete there to hit! See more of this car and others from the
Bowden Collection here at www.bowdensown.com.au
Tribute to Peter Brock
I have seen many great tributes to Peter Brock and have been meaning for
some time to put together one of my own, and here it is finally. Yes, my
blood runs blue, I am a die hard Ford fan, but Peter did what no other
driver has ever been able to do - he brought together Holden and Ford fans,
united in grief at his loss. Please feel free to rate and comment but
derogatory comments will be deleted immediately so don't bother.
Background music is "Is this the end" by Creed and no I don't own the
copyright to the music or any pictures, but they have been used simply to
honour this truly great individual.

Moffat & Grice 1983 Symmons Plains (Super100MPH Edit)
Watch Allan Moffat and Allan Grice battle it out in one of the best race
weekends of the 1983 ATTC season - Round 3. Direct from Symmons Plains,
near Launceston in Tasmania, Gricey in the #6 Holden VH Commodore and
Moffat in the left hand drive #43 Mazda RX-7, show us what racing was all
about... over 30 years ago.

Bathurst 1987: That Old Brocky Magic
Another from the vault - and a clip from what turn out (eventually) to be
Peter Brock's ninth and last Bathurst win. Coming home third on the day,
the "winning" and "second place" Eggenberger Texaco Ford Sierra's were
firstly cleared of having illegal fuel by the Tuesday after the race, but
found to have illegally modified wheel arches and associated body work to
allow them to run larger tyres on their cars. It took until June 1988, but
Brock was declared the winner - but in this sequence in the rain in the
closing laps of the race, we are reminded just how good the man was.
Absolutely superlative car control, mixed with the happy-go-lucky mind of
the man. Pure Brock magic!
