The Boys are Back at Bathurst’s Mount Panorama, and proved that nothing shakes the Mountain like V8 Supercars. This new release highlights the Holden vs Ford classic battles from 1997-2001 – they raced for four years in November and the fifth back to the traditional October.
1997 – Perkins won his sixth Bathurst in a Commodore, his partner, Ingall, won for the first time. Also, Peter Brock’s last race.
1998 – The Bright/Richards Falcon claimed The Great Race prize in a true thriller, a victory against the odds.
1999 – The Richards/Murphy VT Commodore outlasted the field in back-to-back wins for Richards Dick Johnson’s last appearance.
2000 – The Bargwanna/Tander Commodore conquered the Mountain in the most evenly contested 1000 for years.
2001 – Skaife and Longhurst achieved Holden’s 21st victory at The Great Race in one of the fastest 1000 events to date.
