Australian Muscle Car - - Contents -

Not Des West (or Luke West!), but Phil West – an ac­com­plished Aussie wheel­man who seem­ingly gave it away too soon. Or did he? You don’t win races at Bathurst in an F1 car with­out tal­ent. Theme song: ‘You don’t know me’ by Willy Nel­son (or Cindy Walker or Ray Charles).

Monaro pi­o­neer and open-wheel ace Phil West seem­ingly had the rac­ing world at his feet. Then he dis­ap­peared from the lo­cal scene for good. AMC tracked him down to find out why.
