It’s hard to go past the wet 1984 ATCC round when Dick John­son’s green XE Fal­con slid its way to vic­tory, es­pe­cially as the scrap be­hind him saw po­si­tions con­tin­u­ally chang­ing. Mof­fat’s Mazda fell to sixth early and pro­vided much en­ter­tain­ment as he stormed past Steve Master­ton (Fal­con), John Har­vey (in #05), Jim Richards (BMW) and fel­low RX7 run­ner Peter McLeod. He mo­men­tar­ily slot­ted into sec­ond as he lapped back­marker Garry Willm­ing­ton un­der the bridge, but they tan­gled and Mof­fat speared off at high speed. Moff’s Mazda leapt over the levee bank­ing and clob­bered a shrubby tree with a meaty trunk. Mof­fat suf­fered a frac­tured ster­num, a bro­ken fin­ger and his RX7 was a write-off.
