For the 1994 Bathurst, a young Craig Lowndes (20 years of age) teamed up with HRT endurance driver Brad Jones. Jones was able to qualify the 015 HRT in 9th position after the top 10 shoot-out.
Due to wet conditions, the safety car was called upon many times during the early stages of the race. After a late double stint from Jones, the 015 HRT was in a podium position, Lowndes took over the driving for the final sprint.
With only 11 laps remaining Lowndes was winning the race , if only briefly, as a fast finishing John Bowe retook the lead.
Lowndes would go on to finish the race in 2nd position.
After the conclusion of the 1982 Australian Touring Car Championship, Peter Brock, in his Holden Dealer Team Commodore, had scored more points than Dick Johnson who would become the eventual series Champion.
The use of non-homologated engine heads on Brock’s car saw him disqualified from all but two rounds of the Championship.
The matter between CAMS and the HDT ended in court with Brock agreeing to the loss of points and the Championship to avoid a three month suspension.
Therefore, Brock’s official results were 2nd place at Sandown and a 1st Place at Symmons Plains.
The fact that Glenn Seton’s Ford team won the 1993 Sandown 500 in Melbourne was no real surprise, but it was the fact that it was the team’s second entry that claimed the chequered flag – rather than the lead entry – really was a major surprise. Aussie international Geoff Brabham and evergreen Tasmania David ‘Skippy’ Parsons were signed to support the team’s main car, but on a day where virtually all of their rivals had problems, they came sailing home to take a comfortable victory. In fact they finished a full three laps clear of the privateer Ampol Max 3 Commodore entry of Bob Jones and Greg Crick!
Produced in a high quality closed body resin, this scale model of the Ford EL Falcon GT looks exceptional on display. The exterior body lines and kit have been replicated in very fine detail which is a hallmark feature of sealed resin models. Areas such as the front grille and air vents in the bonnet scoop are also finely detailed and the Sparkling Burgundy paint job finishes the model extremely nicely. Despite the model being a sealed body, the windows are clear and no short cuts have been taken with replicating the interior which features remarkable detail and is certainly another impressive feature of this model.
