Take a trip down memory lane to the early years, Amaroo 1979 AMSCAR round 2, heat 2, featuring the Holden Torana A9X with the unusual combination of Bob Morris, Allan Moffat and Allan Grice all driving the A9X, a rare moment in Touring Car History. Also featuring bonus interviews with the drivers and legendary sponsor of touring car racing Ron Hodgson himself. All rights Channel 7 Sport, great contributors to Australian motorsport history. Kudos. Special thanks to Duncan for making it happen. Amaroo Park was a 1.9 kilometres (1.2 mi) motor racing circuit located in Annangrove, New South Wales, in the present-day western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. It was opened in 1967, hosting its first motorcycle meeting on 26 February with a 30 lap production race won by Larry Simons on a BSA Spitfire in heavy rain. The first dry meeting saw the lap record set by Jack Ahearn at 63.9 seconds. The road circuit served as a venue for a variety of competitions including the Castrol 6 Hour motorcycle race, rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship, Formula Ford, Formula 5000, historic racing and others. The last Australian Touring Car Championship round to take place at the circuit was in 1994. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amaroo_Park

1971 - Peter Brock Rallycross - Colin Bond Torana XU1 (SUPER100mph)
https://www.youtube.com/super100mph This video was produced for the Holden Dealers about 1971 ish as a promo film under the title "What's A Nice Car Like You Doing In A Race Like This?" featuring Peter Brock and Colin Bond. Some amazing rare colour footage of Peter Brock "Rallycrossing" in "The Beast" (specially modified Torana) and Colin Bond in his famous Torana XU1 days South Pacific Touring Car Series, competing at Warwick Farm, Sandown and Surfers Paradise. Special thanks to Colin Bond for his introduction to the our video and alerting us to this wonderful footage. Enjoy! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colin_Bond Bond initially made a reputation as a hillclimber with three NSW Hillclimb titles in 1965-67 driving a Lynx-Peugeot S/C. Also known as a rally driver he was relatively unknown in circuit racing circles apart from a few forays racing various Isuzu Belletts, when he was chosen to partner Tony Roberts in one of three Holden Dealer Team entered Holden Monaros for the 1969 Hardie-Ferodo 500 at Bathurst. On a day when the Fords crumbled with unsuitable tyres for the race, the HDT stood strong, putting all three Monaros into the top six positions with Bond and Roberts winning. Torana GTR XU-1 Bond and Shepheard in the Holden Dealer Team Torana GTR XU-1 on their way to another win in the Warana Rally, round four of the 1972 Australian Rally Championship. The nimble 6-cylinder Torana GTR XU-1 debuted in late 1970 and in 1971 Bond began racking up an impressive list of race and rally titles in his Torana. He secured the Manufacturer's Championship for Holden by winning 3 out of 5 rounds, including the Sandown 250 enduro in his XU-1. He also won the Australian Rally Championship and the Southern Cross Rally, along with the South Pacific Touring Series that year. Late in 1971 Bond had a couple of drives with Frank Matich's F5000 team. One was in the Australian Grand Prix at Warwick Farm and driving in a wet practice session Bond put in lap times seconds faster than his more experienced F5000 rivals. After his open-wheeler stint he opted to stay with the Holden Dealer Team. The following year Bond won the Australian Rally Championship for the second year in a row. Bond also won the Catalina Park rallycross series, while on the bitumen he won the Toby Lee Series and Sun-7 Gold Medal. In 1973 he again won the Sun-7 series at Amaroo Park. 1974 ARC winners Colin Bond and George Shepheard in the HDT Torana GTR XU-1 at the Warana Rally, round five of the 1974 Australian Rally Championship. In 1974, as well as winning his third national Rally Championship, Bond won his third consecutive Sun-7 Chesterfield Series against a strong challenge by Bob Morris. Torana L34 In late 1974, driving the new Holden Torana SL/R 5000 L34, he contributed to Holden's victory in the Australian Manufacturers' Championship, again winning three out of five rounds. Peter Brock left the Holden Dealer Team at the end of 1974. So for the 1975 season Colin Bond was the team's No.1 driver. That year he won the Australian Touring Car Championship and also won the South Pacific Touring Car Series. At Bathurst Bond won pole position and led for much of the early part of the race but a broken axle at half distance put him too far back to challenge Peter Brock. Reproduction of the 1976 Bathurst Bond/Harvey Torana Bond was involved in a dramatic finish in 1976 at the Bathurst 1000. Late in the race when it seemed Bond, in the Holden Dealer Team Torana L34, had the race sewn up he was forced to pull into the pits with fanbelt trouble allowing the Bob Morris Torana to take the lead. In the final laps Morris's co-driver, British touring car ace John Fitzpatrick, nursed home an ailing car trailing smoke ahead of Bond's Torana which finished about 40 seconds behind. In 1987, motoring writer Bill Tuckey in his book The Rise and Fall of Peter Brock claimed that there had been a lap scoring error in the 1976 race and that Colin Bond's Torana was the first car to complete the distance. Tuckey claimed Holden declined to challenge the result because a privately entered Holden team had won in such a memorable, emotional finish, and because Bob Morris' major sponsor was Ron Hodgson Motors, one of Sydney's leading Holden dealerships at the time. It remains however a contested footnote, Bob Morris denies that this was the case, claiming most team lap scorers agreed that the results were correct. Despite this, Bond's co-driver John Harvey believes that he and Bond did indeed win the race, despite the official result still showing Morris and Fitzpatrick as race winners. 1984 Bathurst 1000 - Chasing Brock (ICMR)

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!
