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!
Larry Perkins' incredible charge - Adelaide 1994
In the closing few laps of the race, Larry Perkins, sitting in third,
drives like a man posessed and bears down on race leader John Bowe...
Meanwhile Bowe, running wet tires on a drying track, is desperately trying
to cling onto his hard-earned lead..
As they approached the Last Lap of the race, it became a no-holds-barred
tussle for the lead.
Commentary by the ever-flamboyant Darrell Eastlake, alongside Brad Jones.

already impressive video!**
