Forbes/Bartlett ‘Mar­tini’ hatch­back

Australian Muscle Car - - Top 25 -

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.
