1987

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Shelf -

DJR’s worst ever Bathurst! Both Ford Sierra RS500s were out of race within three laps – a hard one to ex­plain to new backer Shell. The John­son/Gregg Hans­ford ex­am­ple blew its diff, while Neville Crich­ton (shar­ing with Char­lie O’Brien) crashed out with Larry Perkins on the ap­proach to The Cut­ting. John­son would put a dis­as­trous ’87 sea­son be­hind him to turn his red rock­ets into the world’s fastest Sier­ras.
