Rush on his­toric cars

Herald Sun - Motoring - - 1986- 1995 Jaguar Xjs -

THE col­lapse of the A1 GP visit to the Gold Coast has cre­ated a golden op­por­tu­nity for fans of his­toric motorsport in Queens­land this week­end.

The rush to fill eight hours of track time has dou­bled the num­ber of V8 Su­per­car races but, even bet­ter, has un­leashed a line-up of the coun­try’s best his­toric racing cars in the hands of gen­uine leg­ends.

The line-up in­cludes Al­lan Mof­fat’s Coca-Mus­tang, Norm Beechey’s Monaro, Ian Geoghe­gan’s ‘‘Su­per Fal­con’’, Kevin Bartlett’s Chan­nel 9 Ca­maro, Peter Brock’s A9X To­rana and Dick John­son’s Tru Blue Fal­con XD, with a driver ros­ter from John­son and Bartlett to Glenn Se­ton and Colin Bond.
