SCALEXTRIC FORD XC FAL­CON

New Zealand Classic Car - - Automobilia -

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. We’re giv­ing this model away this month. To be in the draw to win, sim­ply send your an­swer to the fol­low­ing ques­tion to edi­tor@clas­s­ic­car.co.nz no later than Novem­ber 30, 2017.
