Classic Aust Touring Car Races – Vol 2

Classic Aust Touring Car Races – Vol 2

$30.00

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it was like to go inside the Ford, Holden and Chrysler factory touring car teams of the early 1970′s, then this special presentation will enthral muscle car fans of all ages.

It features original TV stories from the widely acclaimed ’4 Corners’ current affairs Program, which have not been seen since they were first broadcast in black and white more than three decades ago.

Travel back in time to a race meeting at Sydney’s Oran Park Raceway in September 1970 as the work teams prepare for the big Bathurst 500 race.

See Leo Geoghegan’s Pacer break a wheel in a fierce battle with the new HDT Torana GTR XU-1, go inside some of the top secret workshops as the cars are being race prepared and listen to fascinating interviews with the various competition directors including Harry Firth, Al Turner and John Ellis.

There’s also a special ABC report from 1971 which investigates the growing professionalism of Australian touring car racing and the commercial problems confronting the sport at the time.

The vision is built around the Australian Touring Car Championship meeting at Melbourne’s Sandown Park.

There’s not only more great race footage here, but also interviews with Alan Moffat, Bob Jane, Mike Gore and others.

There’s also more thrilling 1960′s Series Production racing action from Sydney’s Warwick Farm Raceway, with Monaro GTSs and Falcon GTs mixing it with Mini Coopers in a classic â??David vs Goliath’ battle on a very wet race day.

We’re sure you’ll thoroughly enjoy this classic compilation. Hosted by Will Hagon
