Australian Muscle Car - - Quarter Mile Muscle -

Mount Panorama, Bathurst, is the place, and the Bathurst 500/ 1000 is the race where so many leg­ends of Aus­tralian mo­tor rac­ing were made. This spe­cial box set of six DVDs fo­cuses on some of the true leg­ends of this iconic Aus­tralian event, fea­tur­ing nine- times win­ner and the man af­fec­tion­ately known as ‘ King of the Moun­tain’ Peter Brock; Ford star Dick John­son, whose Bathurst bat­tles were not con­tained to the Holden op­po­si­tion and some­times in­cluded the track­side trees and even a rock; Larry Perkins, who won with Brock three times be­fore re­turn­ing to three- peat with this own op­er­a­tion; the tal­ented and im­mensely de­ter­mined Mark Skaife; and Harry Firth – four times a Great Race win­ner as a driver but also the man be­hind the early Ford ef­fort and later Holden’s ini­tial glory years from the late ‘ 60s to the late ‘ 70s.
