"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!
THE FASTEST LAP EVER AT BATHURST MOUNT PANORAMA
Watch the FULL amazing, heart pounding race that saw Chris Gilmour set the
new fastest lap record at Bathurst's Mount Panorama in April 2012..
2m04.6187 YES! THAT'S THE FASTEST LAP IN ANY VEHICLE -- EVER IN
COMPETITION!!! Video includes the warm up lap right through to the pits of
this awe inspiring drive. You'll feel like you're in the driver's seat,
every turn, every bump, and the full fury of the Gilmour Racing Formula 3
race car. Better than any car racing video you've ever seen!

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.
