1983 BATHURST 1000 Hardies Heroes More of the "Group C Big Bangers" featuring the horrific Dick Johnson crash missing all those trees that could of killed him plus the surprise qualification from Bobby Morris in a Commodore returning to the mountain after a year off. The Hardies Heroes in it's time was one of the most watched television sporting events of the year attracting so much pre-race interest, it was a credit to Mike Raymond and his team, 1983 featured race cam on the JPS BMW built into the roof of the car producing some amazing shots. Re-live one of the most dramatic top ten shoot outs of all time, with only 9 out of the 10 cars left standing. with Peter Brock, John Harvey, Jim Richards, Allan Grice, Dick Johnson, Bobby Morris,Warren Cullen & Garry Rogers. Soundtrack ICMR's Who's Driving by Blakhatz Credit Channel 7 Sport! The Holden Dealer Team took a controversial, but legal victory with the team's second Holden VH Commodore driven by John Harvey, Peter Brock and Larry Perkins. Harvey and Phil Brock qualified the car but after the #05 car blew its engine on lap 8, Peter Brock and Perkins transferred themselves into Harvey's car. Phil Brock never drove the car on race day as was forced to spectate as his three team-mates won the race in the car he qualified in, a decision he claimed was made by Perkins as team manager despite Perkins being the slowest qualifier of the quartet and despite it also being legal for four drivers to drive one car. The car was also the car which Peter Brock and Larry Perkins had won the race in 1982 and updated to 1983 specs, meaning this Holden Commodore became the first and only race car to win the Bathurst 1000 twice. The Holder Dealer Team Commodore finished a lap ahead of Allan Moffat and Japanese driver Yoshimi Katayama in their Peter Stuyvesant sponsored Mazda RX-7. It would be the closest Mazda would get to winning the race. Third was the STP Roadways Racing Commodore driven by 1982 pole sitter Allan Grice and 1969 winner Colin Bond. Only three cars in the race featured both nominated drivers who had previously won the race. The #05 HDT Commodore of defending race winners Brock and Perkins, the #17 Ford XE Falcon of Dick Johnson and Kevin Bartlett, and the #16 Nissan Bluebird turbo of Fred Gibson and John French. Ironically, sitting next to the Gibson/French Bluebird on the starting grid was the #50 Mazda RX-7 of future winners Peter McLeod and Graeme Bailey.

Peter Brock is known by many as "King of the Mountain' and one of the best racing drivers Australia has seen. After his tragic death in 2006 a large proportion of the 194,000 race spectators also came to say farewell to him. In doing so they decorated the safety wall at the top of the mountain with thousands of farewell messages.
