Retired five-times Bathurst winner Mark Skaife returned for the 2009 V8 enduros with four-times winner Greg Murphy to drive the Sprint Gas Racing VE Commodore #51.
The highly credentialed drivers have experienced success at Mount Panorama on nine occasions between them and were on course to win Bathurst,
but a safety car with 21 laps to go ruined what would have been a dream result.

Early in 1972 Ford released the XA GT Falcon in sedan and hardtop versions. It was the first falcon to be totally designed by Australians, as production of the Falcon in the US had ceased some 18 months earlier.
The XA was the biggest Falcon yet, with the boldest styling, designed for wider appeal with its less aggressive look and creature comforts.
Ford built 129,473 XA Falcons between March 1972 and September 9173, including the construction of 129 RPO83 sedans.
The GT Specials – that’s their official title – were Regular Production Option 83 on Fords options list for Falcon GTs.

The XR GT Falcon was released to the public in May 1967. The credibility of the XR was strengthened when it was selected by the New South Wales and Victorian Police as their high speed pursuit vehicle.
Bill Bourke, Ford Australia’s Managing Director at the time, saw the prototype of the XR Falcon V8 police special and decided to develop a production version. This new GT was developed at Ford’s proving ground You Yang in North Melbourne by Ford engineers in conjunction with Harry Firth, a leading driver and race car preparer. Sales success was assured due to a win at Bathurst in 1967 by Harry Firth and Fred Gibson.
The XR GT had well and truly proven itself as a vehicle that offered performance, comfort and safety amongst its features.
The XR Gt was most famously produced in GT Gold paint. Of the 684 manufactured, 671 were gold, the remaining 13 cars were split between 6 colours. Eight of the cars were painted in ‘Gallaher Silver’, to promote the sponsor of the 1967 Bathurst race.
Three cars were delivered to race teams for the Bathurst race, painted in ‘Ivy Green’, ‘Polar White’ and ‘Sultan Maroon’.
The remaining two cars were painted for Ford executives. One went to Bill Bourke, requesting a Russet Bronze version. The last car was painted in Avis White for an unknown executive.

The 1972 Bathurst was memorable as it was the first time rain had significantly affected the race. It was won by Peter Brock driving a Holden Dealer Team Torana, the first of Brock’s record nine victories.
Brock finished a lap ahead of Queensland racer John French driving a Ford XY Falcon GT-HO Phase III, this despite Brock being penalised one minute at his last pit stop for starting his car while the HDT crew were still re-fueling.
Pole sitter and winner of the previous two Bathurst races, Allan Moffat, had a race he would rather forget.
After dicing for the lead with Brock in the early laps, Moffat spun his Phase III Falcon at Sulman Park on top of the Mountain in wet conditions.
Although he would fight his way back, he would twice be penalised one minute for restarting his car during pit stops before the re-fueling had been completed. Later in the race the Falcon would also encounter brake problems and Moffat dropped back to finish the race in 9th place, 8 laps down on Brock.

Holden VF Commodore SSV Redline II 2017 – Light My Fire

 

SSV Redline

This 1:18 scale model has just been released and it is available now for purchase.

The model number is B182717C and it is priced at $195.

Stock is very limited so grab one now here.

Widely considered to be Holden’s last crack at producing a locally built Commodore, the Series 2 VF SS-V Redline is the flagship of the iconic Australian manufacturer’s range. With a 6.2 litre, 304kW LS3 V8 engine, 19 inch alloy wheels, electric tilt and slide sunroof, leather appointed interior, Brembo performance brakes and a raft of other features, this is an exceptional example of a modern, tough road car that has a relatively affordable price tag for the average punter.
Our new 1:18 SS-V Redline model has been produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, which should be welcome news for many die-cast model car collectors. Additionally, the models will have numerous features including, faithfully replicated interiors, nicely replicated 19” staggered wheels with road going tyres, photo etched parts, beautifully presented detailing and outstanding finishing all round.
It’s an exceptional model of a car that will one day be considered an absolute classic and one for the history books.
