HOLDEN HT MONARO 1970 ATCC WINNER 50TH ANNIVERSAR­Y GOLD LIVERY SCHEDULED PRODUCTION OF 750 PIECES WORLDWIDE The 1970 Australian Touring Car Championsh­ip was contested over Seven Rounds at Calder Park, Bathurst, Sandown, Mallala, Warwick Farm, Lakeside and Symmons Plains. Although the No.4 Holden HT Monaro GTS350 finished out of the points in the First Round at Calder Park, it did set a new lap record, which sent a clear message to the other teams that the car was going to be competitiv­e for the remainder of the Championsh­ip. The Second and Third Rounds at Bathurst and Sandown respective­ly, were won by the Holden HT Monaro. A Second place at Mallala and another race win at Lakeside gave the HT Monaro a total of 33 points for the year to that point. Despite an engine failure during the last round at Symmons Plains, the No.4 HT Monaro had sufficient points to still claim the Championsh­ip ahead of Jim McKeown and Bob Jane.
