Fa­mil­iar Fal­con sheet me­tal

Herald Sun - Motoring - - On the Web -

Fans of Aus­tralian tour­ing car rac­ing of­ten get a bit misty-eyed at the men­tion of the golden era of ho­molo­ga­tion spe­cials, back when Holden Monaros and Fal­con GTHOS ruled the na­tion’s race­tracks, and Al­lan Moffat and Peter Brock were house­hold names. V8 su­per­car driver James Moffat grew up in the shadow of his fa­ther’s on-track ex­ploits so knows he has big shoes to fill, par­tic­u­larly as this year is the 40th an­niver­sary of Moffat snr’s first Aus­tralian Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship, and the 40th an­niver­sary of the Fal­con’s first ti­tle win. Moffat jnr chose to cel­e­brate the oc­ca­sion by un­veil­ing his 2012 Fal­con — lit­er­ally, as he peeled off the cov­er­ing sheet decked out as his dad’s leg­endary GTHO. For video of the re­veal, in­clud­ing in­ter­views with the Mof­fats and Dick John­son, view cars­guide.com.au.
