New HTC contender emerges
speed freak Carey McMahon, debuted his 1990 ex-Tony Longhurst RS500 Sierra in a very spectacular manner in the Heritage Touring Car category at the recent Phillip Island Classic. McMahon snared pole position and scored a very popular race win just eight weeks after buying the car.
That’s a super-quick race prep turnaround for the car that finally broke ‘Farmer George’ Fury’s 1984 qualifying lap record at Bathurst. McMahon’s #20 Sierra struck issues later in the meeting but was quick while it lasted. This made life easier for Tony Alford (GIO Nissan GT-R) who bagged four wins over the weekend. CD
