One Lap Race of Bathurst - Speed Comparison between Holdens - Peter Brock Mark Skaife
A one lap race at Mount Panorama, Bathurst between a 1979 Holden A9X Torana, a 2004 Holden VZ SS Commodore & a 2004 Holden VZ Commodore V8 Supercar.
It's interesting to see how far racing technology has progressed.
The V8 Supercar happens to be the same car as my 1/6th Radio controlled version, as featured in some of my other clips.
Peter Brock Bathurst 1979, Last Lap in the A9X.
The legendary last lap of the 1979 Bathurst enduro. Peter Brock takes the
race win by a massive six lap lead, setting a new lap record on this final
lap. Enjoy this great sporting moment...
Peter Brock: The last studio interview In Pit Lane
I had thought this was already up on YouTube but it appears not. So in
response to those who want to see it once again here is our special
interview show with Brocky recorded on the eve of him leaving for The
Goodwood Revival. Less than 2 weeks later he was gone, killed in a crash
while competing in the Targa West Tarmac Rally in Western Australia.
To this day it's hard to watch this without feeling so sad, and also
wondering just what Brock would be doing now. It'd be something pretty
exciting I would imagine.
Sorry about the quality but it was encoded as a podcast back when podcasts
were really small.

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!
