Forbes/Bartlett ‘Martini’ hatchback
Its distinctive Martini livery made it a standout on the track, a typically well-presented Bob Forbes racecar. Forbes and Kevin Bartlett ran it at Bathurst in 1978, recording a DNF, having covered 136 laps. Race winner Peter Brock later ran it in Historic competition not lon g before his tragic death in 2006. Now it races on in Heritage Touring Cars with owner Shaun Tunney. Forbes’ earlier A9X also survives. See p110.
