Wether you are mad on Holden's, Ford's (all Fords are crap) or any make then you will know what Peter Brock (Brocky) has done for Holdens and Australian Motor Sport. It started for Brocky when he visited the Mt Panorama circuit in 1966 while he was on leave from the armed services, he went away from the circuit with one thing on his mind and that was to get behind the wheel of a race car.  It inspired him into building his beloved Austin A30 and thus started an impressive record in this little beast. It was basically a Holden in a A30 shell and was pumping out quote "about 240 bhp" and with it he had over 100 wins in both circuit racing and hill climb events.

  The Grey Fox Harry Firth took some time to convince Brocky it wasn't one of his mates pulling a prank when he gave him a phone call and offered to build him a real race car if he got rid of that thing.  Brocky was a listener and a quick learner and with the master planner Harry Firth became a force to be reckoned with and in his fourth year (3rd '69, 4th '70, 6th '71), it was decided to run Bathurst alone.  It was wet in 1972 for the last solo drive at Bathurst and the first Bathurst win for a man who just lived to race.  The battle against Alan Moffat was like a David and Goliath with the brute power of the 351 V8 Ford GTHO verses the 202 Torana GTR XU1.  Brocky would pass Moffat up and over the hill only to watch the Ford pull out and pull away down Conrod straight, and with Colin Bond crashing early the HDT camp were a little nervous but Brocky kept niggling at Moffat until the big Ford aquaplaned.  Given that break was all that was needed and even when Moffat got going again he was never going to catch the man they called perfect and the start of the most impressive ever Bathurst record was beginning to take shape!


It started from a visit (to watch) in 1966 and just six years later the prize and glory.

Rallycross was a very popular form of racing in the early 70's!
