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.
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.
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...
Foot cam from the HRT V8 Supercar hot lap
This is the foot cam from my hot lap in the V8 Supercar. Just gives you an
idea of how intensely V8 drivers actually do drive.
I was the passenger. Driver was Neil Crompton.

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!
