Last edi­tion we fea­tured Surfers Par­adise In­ter­na­tional Race­way in our new Sa­cred Sites sec­tion. Now here’s a shot of cars leav­ing the dummy grid ahead of the 1983 ATCC round. “The card­board ‘bull­bar’ in­di­cated the de­gree of agro which ex­isted be­tween Al­lan Grice and the driver of car #43, none other than Al­lan Mof­fat,” Gary writes. “I thought this photo may be of in­ter­est to your read­ers.” Grice and Mof­fat have never been best of bud­dies, but this era saw re­la­tions turn par­tic­u­larly frosty with on-track scuf­fles and off-track po­lit­i­cal ma­noeu­vring to gain tech­ni­cal con­ces­sions.
