Andrew Williams in his giant killing 330hp XU1. He's up against it at this track running with the big V8's. It's effectively like 2 drag strips with corners at either end. He still gives them hell in his screaming little inline six. Race Recall supplied Camera.

1971 - Peter Brock Rallycross - Colin Bond Torana XU1 (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!
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
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
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.
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
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.

can pull clean from 1500rpm in top and runs a Black Motor, stock 4-speed

which Wheels Magazine tested and did a 13.5 second quarter. 0-60mph in
around 5 seconds, and 0-100mph in 12 second, 85mph comes up in 8.7 seconds.
How many HP is it putting out, best estimates are around 260-280hp from an
engine that started with less than half that, strong torque comes in around
2000rpm good HP from around 4000rpm, Stock internals, gearbox and clutch
