Heritage Touring Cars group crowned its champions at the Historic Sandown meeting in November. The two overall category champions were Carey McMahon (Group A; Nissan GTR) and Chris Bowden (Group C; Mazda RX7).
The full rundown of Group A class winners were: McMahon, over 3000cc; Peter Jones (BMW M3), 2001-3000cc; and David Paterson (Corolla), up to 2000cc. Meantime, the Group C class winners were: Bowden, over 3000cc; Peter Woods (Volvo 242GT), 2001-3000cc; and Greg Keam (Escort), 1601-2000cc. Until
now, few people beyond the kiddies on George Fury’s school bus have been driven by “the Talmalmo farmer”. What? You didn’t know the 1984 James Hardie 1000 polesitter and twice Australian Rally Champion drove the local school bus? Shame on you.
Fury’s many fans have been snapping up tickets to Gibson Motorsport’s unique ‘Dream Ride’ experience at Melbourne’s Sandown Raceway on Friday, February 12, 2016.
Just 40 fans in total will sit alongside the legendary rally and circuit racing champion in an original Group C Nissan Bluebird Turbo. The day will also include lunch and the opportunity to meet George, his former team manager and AMC columnist, Fred Gibson, and a Q&A session hosted by the V8 Sleuth himself – Aaron Noonan.
