"End of an Era" Bathurst 1979
"End of an Era" The James Hardie Ferodo 1000 at Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia, 1979. This was digitised from an ancient Pioneer DiscoVision disk and player. These were installed in various GMH (Holden) dealerships during the 1980's to play the videos as promotion for the Holden cars. Please excuse any lipsync issues, the disk has severe laser rot and I was lucky to get enough video to splice together to make one complete version. Its a very 'Holden' view of the race. Check out the cool Ford Falcon Hardtops though! And yes I am biased I did have one after all! A nice piece of Aussie history!

Here is an old Bathurst 1972 500 special. This is the race that started the Peter Brock legend and the first Torana win in the mighty 6 cylinder GTR XU-1. It was later called Bathurst 1000 when they changed to kilometres.
