SCALEXTRIC FORD XC FALCON
Pushing for more television time, the 1978 HardieFerodo 1000 saw the introduction of the Hardies Heroes Top 10 shootout for pole position. Rain in the morning meant the track was damp during the first run, which was certainly reflected in the times. That was until Allan Moffat went out in his XC Falcon and, ignoring the dangerously wet conditions, ran a time six seconds faster than anyone else. Moffat was eventually pushed back to third, and unfortunately the race didn’t go as planned. He was forced to retire on lap 81, allowing rival Peter Brock to take the victory.
