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.
Limited edition of 1300
In 1985 Australian touring car racing ran under International Group A formula, rather than the indigenous Group C regulations that had been in force since 1973. This led indirectly to the Holden Commodores becoming less competitive against the imported Nissans, Volvos, BMWs and Jaguars.
The 1985 Bathurst 1000 was not one of Brock’s nine wins; it was a race that was always going to prove difficult up against the best Group A cars from Europe. However, the hard-charging Brock, whose progress had twice been interrupted by pit stops to remove a broken windscreen and later to dislodge the rear window, was steadily making inroads on the leading John Goss Jaguar XJ-S. Despite only one win during the season, Brock nearly pulled off an upset podium, but his magnificent drive came to nothing just three laps from the chequered flag, when a timing chain broke while running a strong second.
1985 turned out to be the worst Bathurst result for Holden in history.
