Three of the best from a golden era of Australian motorsport.

Australian touring car racing boomed in the 1980s on the back of the international Group A rulebook that saw Ford, Nissan, Holden, BMW, Volvo, Toyota and many other manufacturers go head-to-head. On this very special Seven Sport Magic Moments of Motorsport release we rewind back to take in some of the great races from this period of the sport.

First up is Round 9 of the 1986 Australian Touring Car Championship at Winton Motor Raceway in northeast Victoria. The penultimate round of that year’s title chase, this Group A Classic featured plenty of action between the Nissan Skylines of George Fury and Gary Scott (who won but was later excluded for a brake irregularity), the BMW of Jim Richards (who inherited the road when the Nissan was removed from the results) and the Volvos of Robbie Francevic and John Bowe.

Then we head across to New Zealand to take in the action of the Nissan-Mobil 500 endurance race on the streets on the waterfront of Wellington. This race saw Peter Brock and Allan Moffat clinch their second straight win in the Kiwi classic, however it turned out to be the last time a Holden Dealer Team car claimed victory before Brock and Holden had a very public divorce only weeks later.

We jump ahead to 1990 to round out this release to Round 6 of the 1990 ATCC at Mallala in South Australia. This marked the debut of the potent Nissan GT-R in the hands of Mark Skaife but ‘old faithful’ Colin Bond chalked up a win in his Caltex Sierra despite the presence of the new Japanese ‘supercar’.

As a special bonus we have also included the 1988 AMSCAR Series final round from Amaroo Park as eventual champion Tony Longhurst and his Sierra tackles a horde of challengers from this sadly now defunct circuit. This is a special release of fans of touring car racing from the 1980s with some real gold from the 7 Sport archive.
