Jesper OH should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1989 Australian Group A Touring Car Races - Discussion & Results

With the current pace, entries for 1989 are open. The Dick Johnson Sierras are once more the cars to beat, but new Ford man Peter Brock works up plenty of speed over the season in former Andy Rouse equipment. The Longhurst/Gardner B&H RS500s prove very fast, if less reliable. The HR31 Skyline proves very reliable, but not fast enough, and looses their Peter Jackson sponsorship to former team driver Glenn Seton and his new RS500 team. No involvement from BMW Australia so the M3 are reduced to a class car for privateers. Meanwhile the Holden factory team spends the entire ATCC season working out its status within the GM conclomerate.

Thank you, William, for remind me of the nead of these Aussie threads - you most have been preparing for them for a while!

Amaroo Park should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The highlight of that season for me was 2 race in particular. The first being the winton round of the championship were Nissan were very much on the pace. In the wet race though it wasn't Richards who did the business, he was out after a first lap crash with Glenn Seton, but George Fury who won his last ATCC round in a great drive. The other highlight of the day was the Grice Longhurst incident were Grice punted Longhurst off at the Racing Car News esses. Then back in the pits Longhursts team manger went up to tell Grice he wasn't happy with the comment "YOU NEVER CHAGE DO YOU" and proceeded to jab him with a golf unbrella.

The other race was the Sunday Group A race at the Adelaide Grand Prix were Longhurst and Colin Bond had a fantastic battle in appalling conditions. Bondy had had a dreadful year trying to get his Motec Management System working on the Sierra but showed all at Adelaide that day the talent that bought him 3 Australian Rally Championships with awesome car control

Holden did plan to run a pair of factory cars in the 1989 ATCC, and two cars were entered for the Amaroo opener for Win Percy and Neil Crompton. Percy was in Australia in preperation for it... but his only outing ended up being in a NASCAR at the Moomba meeting at the Thunderdome (on the same weekend as the Symmons Plains ATCC race)

Crompton had also done alot of miles around Calder during the off-season in the #20 TWR Commodore from Bathurst 1988. Of course it all came to naught

Grice didn't back down either, after the jab he threw the orange juice he was drinking in Frank's face

It really was a ripper performance from Grice though that day, a 4th place, and leading for abit. He was also the only car not to pit for better tyres during the race, running the whole thing wets that twere pretty second hand on the dry-ish track at the end.

William Dale Jr should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
5/3/1989 - ATCC1 - Amaroo Park, NSW

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 1 - Amaroo Park, NSW (5/3/1989)

also Round 1 of the James Hardie Building Products AMSCAR Series

Circuit Length: 1.946 km
Race Duration: 1 hour (66 laps)
Weather: Sunny

Lots of changes in the off-season, led by Brock's defection to Ford. With BMW's withdrawal from Australian touring car racing, the Mobil team was free to run two ex-Rouse Sierras for Brock and Brad Jones. Richards had left to join Nissan, who by Amaroo had sorted their handling and reliability issues with the HR31 Skyline. The other Mobil BMW driver, Neil Crompton, was signed to drive for the factory Holden team alongside Win Percy. Unfortunately, that's as far as the team got. The factory team never showed, finally appearing in time for the enduros, but more on that later. Larry Perkins appeared to be on the outs with the factory and only ran his privately-entered car at Sandown and Winton. Benson & Hedges Racing had expanded to two cars as had Colin Bond's team, Ken Mathews having acquired Longhurst's Bathurst-winning car from the year before, while the coffers at Miedecke Motorsport were now flush with funds from Kenwood, Yokohama, and Blast Dynamics. Meanwhile, down in the little car class, Toyota ran a Star Search competition that would see new young talent from all around Australia racing alongside John Faulkner in the second TTA Corolla throughout the ATCC, with the best two racing the car at Bathurst. Calder and AIR were off the calendar after Bob Jane signed a sponsorship deal with Vic Health for the Calder facility that prevented the display of cigarette advertising. Mallala was added as the South Australian round of the series. The biggest change was made to the races themselves. The races were now to be 1 hour in duration, rather than consisting of a set number of laps, deferring to the wishes of series broadcaster Channel 7.

Some things hadn't changed, though: Dick Johnson qualified on pole, with Bowe 3rd. Brock qualified on the front row but team-mate Jones would start from the back, having been caught out in the wet first session. Joining him down the back was Miedecke, who had engine management dramas through qualifying.

Bowe got a cracking start to shoot past Johnson and Brock into the lead as the field crested Bitupave Hill for the first time. Brock - running on Dunlops since Bridgestone didn't have Sierra tyres ready yet - held third but was holding the field up, his slowing pace foreshadowing a turbo failure. Richards had already snuck through and was chasing down the leading Shell cars. He soon flew past Johnson - passing him around the outside at Honda corner! - but there was nothing he could do about Bowe. Fury passed Johnson for 3rd just before Dick headed to the pits for new tyres. He charged back within 3 seconds of Fury; had he pitted a couple of laps earlier, the race could have been very different. A very good race, giving hope for a close championship.

12/3/1989 - ATCC2 - Symmons Plains, TAS

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 2 - Symmons Plains, TAS (12/3/1989)


Circuit Length: 2.41 km
Race Duration: 1 hour (61 laps)
Weather: Overcast

Brock beat Johnson to the pole, the first time he'd topped the timesheets since the 1986 Sandown 500. Richards, Jones and Terri Sawyer flew back to Melbourne after qualifying to participate in the Moomba 200 AUSCAR race, before flying back to Tasmania for the ATCC race.

Longhurst decided to use extra hard brake pads for the race, and worked really hard to get heat into them on the warm up and formation laps. He did the job too well; the pads welded themselves to the discs on the start line, and he travelled all of 20 metres before the clutch gave out. Moffat capped off a rough week by breaking a wheel and steering arm when trying to sneak past the stricken B&H car. Moffat had been lucky to even get to Symmons Plains after his Sierra was badly damaged in a road accident as it was trailered back from Amaroo. Meanwhile, Johnson had beaten Brock to the hairpin, quickly pulling out a gap that he'd maintain to the end of the race. Bowe was holding down a safe third until he pitted for new tyres, a legacy of a bad brake lockup entering the hairpin on lap 2. The Nissans weren't as competitive on the long straights of Symmons Plains, Richards finishing lapped in sixth while Fury lost another lap after clashing with Matt Wacker early in the race. Jones was having a solid race in the top 5 before his timing belt broke. Bond crossed the finish line just before Johnson took the chequers, but fortunately he had the presence of mind to complete the lap to classify himself as a finisher.

16/4/1989 - ATCC3 - Lakeside, QLD

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 3 - Lakeside, QLD (16/4/1989)


Circuit Length: 2.41 km
Race Duration: 30 minutes (33 laps; 1 hour scheduled, race duration reduced due to accident during first start)
Weather: Sunny

The meeting was postponed for two weeks after unseasonally heavy rainfall in south-east Queensland caused the adjacent Lake Kurwongbah to flood the racetrack. One qualifying session had already been completed, but the times were scrubbed and the restarted from scratch.

Andrew Miedecke was fastest early, before Johnson came through on the Saturday to take pole on home ground. Terry Finnigan destroyed his car in a fiery accident exiting the kink, backing the Trojan Boats commodore hard into the earth-filled tyre barrier. Terry emerged the burning car unscathed through the drivers' side window, the once immaculately-presented car a write-off.

There were question marks over the durability of the the D15 Dunlops chosen by Johnson and Longhurst. Johnson took off from the start while Brock held up the field. First Longhurst, then Bowe, then Richards made their way past the Mobil Sierra but Miedecke was trapped, along with Seton, Hansford and Fury. They weren't helped by yellow flags at the main passing spot - heading into the Karussell - after contact between Ken Mathews and Superbike racer Michael Dowson in the second TTA car. On lap 10 the train of cars came up to lap Graham Lusty...

Brock made it past okay, but Miedecke ran wide into the Commodore, both crashing hard into the armco and catching fire under the Dunlop Bridge. The Lusty car stopped under the armco, but the Kenwood Sierra bounced back into the path of Seton, which wiped out the Peter Jackson car. Miedecke's car ended up broadsides in the middle of the track on fire, Andrew hiding behind the car until a break in the traffic allowed him to sprint across the track to safety; the race still hadn't been stopped. Marshalls had begun to attack the fire in the Lusty car with cars still coming through at racing speeds. Murray Carter, unsighted behind two Commodores and the smoke and the flame, and the powder from the extinguishers, slammed into the side of the burning Miedecke car. Eventually the race was red-flagged, but the Seton, Lusty and Miedecke cars were destroyed; the former Kenwood car now just a burnt-out shell. A restart was delayed by almost two hours while the race while the armco under the bridge was replaced. Apart from the four cars involved, Brad Jones would also miss the restart after debris smashed the oil cooler on his Sierra.

The restarted race was shortened to a duration of 30 minutes which eased the Dunlop runners worries about making their rubber last. On the restart Johnson led away from Brock, Longhurst and Bowe. Brock's hard Bridgestones worked against him over the shorter distance. Longhurst moved past the Mobil car on lap 8 but by that point Johnson had already legged it. Brock would spin off at the Karussell but came back to hold off Hansford and Richards for fourth.

30/4/1989 - ATCC4 - Wanneroo Park, WA

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 4 - Wanneroo Park, WA (30/4/1989)


Circuit Length: 2.41 km
Race Duration: 50 minutes (44 laps)
Weather: Rain clearing to overcast

Although depleted by the carnage at Lakeside the entry for Wanneroo was boosted by the addition of local runners, including the new Barbagallo Motor Sport Commodores of Alf Barbagallo and Tim Slako. Wanneroo would only be a 50-minute race to fit in with Channel 7's 1 hour telecast time slot, a change that would become very significant on Sunday afternoon.

In qualifying, Brock was again the only one able to get close to the pace-setting Shell duo. Rain throughout the day had subsided by race time but the track was still very wet. Wets were clearly the order of the day, the only question being how long they would last. Johnson once again took off into a clear lead from Richards, Brock, Longhurst, Fury and Bond. Bowe had made a bad start, compounded by a touch from Brock at the first corner which sent him off. He finished the first lap in 7th but immediately started to regain ground. He carved his way back through the pack to be past Bond and into 3rd by lap 10. Dunlop's wets were clearly the order of the day as Richards and Brock fell back. With the track drying out Longhurst came in for slicks on lap 25, followed soon by Bowe. Johnson maintained his lead and did his best to preserve his now-ailing wet Dunlops. In the waning minutes, and with Bowe and Longhurst taking huge chunks out of his lead, Johnson pitted. Dick didn't realise the race was almost over, forgetting the race was only 50 minutes long. He made short of others struggling on worn wets but there was no catching Bowe or Longhurst. Bowe now headed the championship from Johnson with everyone else trailing.

7/5/1989 - ATCC5 - Mallala, SA

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 5 - Mallala, SA (7/5/1989)


Circuit Length: 2.6 km
Race Duration: 1 hour (49 laps)
Weather: Sunny

The ATCC made its first stop in Mallala since 1971 but not everyone was satisfied by the facilities at the circuit, Johnson in particular was outspoken about them. The Nissan team expanded to three cars, Fury debuting a new Skyline while his old car was driven by Mark Skaife.

Johnson was on pole once again, but this one hadn't been quite so easy. Dick had picked up a stomach bug during the week and couldn't be in the car for long periods of time. Dick joked that the pole lap came because he had to get back to the pits really quicky! Alongside him was Bond, while championship leader Bowe had engine issues in the only dry session that left him down in eighth.

Johnson led Bond and Longhurst through the first turn kink, but Brock ran wide off the track and scattered the field as he rejoined out of control at turn two. The Mobil Sierra hit Bowe and went into a half-spin, to be hit by Fury and Jones. Richards saw the Mobil car coming and ran wide in avoidance. Meanwhile, Longhurst skated up the inside of Bond at the hairpin, locking up and running off into the dirt. He rejoined in fifth behind Skaife and Moffat and immediately ahead of the remarkable Slako in the pink and black Barbagallo Commodore, having avoided the melee at turn two. All this action left Johnson in a clear lead which he maintained until the end, but behind him though was all action. Bond was struggling with fluctuating boost, causing him to loop the Caltex car exiting the final corner. He'd later retire to avoid ruining the engine. Bowe's charge was briefly halted when he was shown the mechanical black and orange flag to rectify a loose rear bumper trim knocked loose by Brock on the first lap. Brock struggled on with an ill-handling car, finally put out of his misery when the diff broke - a legacy of the hits from Fury and Jones - just after half distance. Longhurst was in tyre trouble, partially caused by his lap one lockup, pitting from second for a new set of rubber. Bowe and Richards had made their way past the battling Skaife and Moffat into second and third, but the championship leader was now in gearbox trouble. No fourth gear left Bowe defenceless against Richards in the closing laps. The finishing order read Johnson, Richards, Bowe, Longhurst, and Moffat, who'd snagged fifth from Skaife on the line. Skaife would eventually get the place, though; the ANZ car was found to be underweight at post-race scrutineering and was disqualified.

Also of note, this was Gerald Kay's last race for his venerable, old, HDT-built VK Commodore. It went out in a plume of smoke, crossing the line with a dying engine! He would have a nice, new fuel-injected VL for Sandown.

21/5/1989 - ATCC6 - Sandown Park, VIC

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 6 - Sandown Park, VIC (21/5/1989)


Circuit Length: 3.1 km
Race Duration: 1 hour (47 laps)
Weather: Cloudy

"Big Bad Sandown is Back!" proclaimed the pre-race promotion, the LCCA deciding to ditch the unpopular Grand Prix loop and go back to using the old high-speed esses section. The series' first Victorian stop saw a lot of privateers make their first appearance, including Larry Perkins, Garry Rogers and Tony Noske, while those involved in the Lakeside carnage were all back save for Murray Carter. The Miedecke crew would have more work on their hands, though, after Andrew Bagnall rolled his Sierra in practice. The car wouldn't appear again until Bathurst. Another person missing was George Fury, his Skyline more damaged than first thought after the first lap dramas at Mallala. Brock had replaced the differential with the locally-developed spool unit and felt the handling had improved as a result, putting #05 on the
front row alongside Johnson, on pole yet again.

I feel this race signalled the beginning of the end of DJR's domination of Australian touring car racing. While Johnson was never headed once the lights turned green, Brock stuck with him the whole way, at one point getting alongside down the front straight. This, in hindsight, was the first time someone was able to challenge Johnson over a race-long basis, Brock only one second behind the Shell car at the flag. Half a minute behind them was Bowe, hampered by a down-on-power engine and a spin at Dandenong Road corner. Miedecke made a fine start on his return to racing, making a fine start to be running as high as third before dropping out with an overheating Sierra.

28/5/1989 - AMSCAR2 - Amaroo Park, NSW

James Hardie Building Products AMSCAR Series
Round 2 (28/5/1989)


Circuit Length: 1.946 km
Weather: Sunny

A wet qualifying session levelled the playing field between the Sierras and the privateers, and it was Brian Callaghan who took the pole. The conditions clearly suited the ex-speedway racer, holding the yellow Commodore in beautifully-controlled lurid slides coming through the final corner. Joining him on the front row was Mark Gibbs. The more tractable normally-aspirated cars were coming to the fore in the conditions, further evidenced by Reda Awadallah qualifying in sixth, and Faulkner qualifying the little Corolla in eighth ahead of Ken Mathews Sierra!

Heat 1
Race Distance
: 5 laps

Callaghan got away best and led; a Commodore in front! He and Longhurst ran away from the field, leaving Gibbs and Bond to dice for third. Longhurst used the power of the turbo Ford to blast past Callaghan as they crossed the line with one lap to go. The battle for third was settled on lap 3 when Bond ran wide exiting the loop, hooked a wheel over the kerb and spun into the side of Gibbs. The Bob Forbes car came off the worst, getting turned hard left into the earth-filled tyre wall. The car was demolished, and Gibbs would play no further part in the meeting.

With the finishing positions determining the starting positions for heat 2, Bond had a job ahead of him starting from 9th. Longhurst led Callaghan into the loop for the first time, while Bond started to make his way through the field. He was on Callaghan's rear bumper by half-distance, but locked the rears on the way into Honda corner and spun the car, rejoining to finish fifth. Meanwhile Longhurst ran out a comfortable winner from Callaghan.

4/6/1989 - ATCC7 - Winton, VIC

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 7 - Winton, VIC (4/6/1989)


Circuit Length: 2.03 km
Race Duration: 1 hour (51 laps)
Weather: Rain clearing to overcast

Winton saw the return to the ATCC of Allan Grice, making his first start since the end of 1987 aboard his Roadways Commodore from the previous year's Bathurst. The big surprise in qualifying was that the Shell Sierras were off the pace. George Fury was back, his car fully repaired after the misadventure at Mallala. The Shell cars couldn't quite get a handle on the circuit, with Bowe in 6th and Johnson - unable to set a quicker time before red flags and rain intervened - down in 9th. On the front row were Brock and Bond, with Seton, Longhurst and Richards filling the first few rows. The aforementioned red flags were brought out after a big accident that badly damaged Bob Holden's Corolla on the exit of the Esses. Larry Perkins came up behind the Corolla on a qualifying lap and accidentally spun the little car into the barriers, coming to rest in the middle of the road. Also missing the race was Neville Crichton, hitting the wall hard enough in the wet conditions to put the car away for the rest of the weekend.

Many have said this was one of the best ATCC races of all time. Luckily someone's just uploaded it to YouTube, which makes me especially happy because I haven't seen this race for about 20 years, after my copy of the race was accidentally taped over...

25/6/1989 - AMSCAR3 - Amaroo Park, NSW

James Hardie Building Products AMSCAR Series
Round 3 (25/6/1989)


Circuit Length: 1.946 km

This meeting wasn't broadcast, so there's not that much I can tell you about it. A couple of things I do know is that this marked the reappearance of the Lansvale Smash Repairs Commodore. Ashby and Reed struggled to get a handlen on the new TWR-developed car, unable to get it to go as fast as the car did in the old trim. So what did they do? They reverted it back to the carburetted, HDT version of the VL. Also, this meeting saw the return of the ex-JPS, ex-Brock BMW M3s, now in the hands of John Cotter and Peter Doulman.

9/7/1989 - ATCC8 - Oran Park, NSW

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 8 - Oran Park, NSW (9/7/1989)


Missing from this race was Brad Jones. The day after the Winton round, the Mobil team was at the Victorian track trying out drivers for the enduros. Former 500cc motorcycle world champion Barry Sheene was one of the drivers, but unfortunately he spun the car exiting the esses in the tricky, greasy, cold conditions, nosing the car hard into the pit wall. The damage was bad enough for the team to declare the shell a write off, and with Brock's new car not yet ready there was no car for Jones for the finale.

Qualifying saw Brock set the pace, taking what was widely reported as his 50th ATCC pole position. Johnson was 3 tenths back in second, knowing he only had to finish third to lock up the title even if Bowe won. Again, this is a race that I once-upon-a-time had on tape, but someone accidentally recorded Tora! Tora! Tora! over it... What I do know is that after an hour of racing, Brock crossed the line to take his first win since Surfers in 1986, while Johnson came across second to wrap up ATCC number five.

1989 ATCC Championship Results

1989 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Championship Results


Interestingly, although the Shell cars were clearly the fastest for the bulk of the ATCC they were nowhere near as dominant as the year before, and not once did they score a team 1-2.

Of the challengers, Brock may have been in championship contention had he started the season in better fashion. Despite well-sorted cars - Brock's was Rouse's weapon for 1988, winning the TT and very nearly the BTCC - the team lacked experience with the cars, compounded by a lack of suitable Bridgestones at the start of the year. Longhurst finished down in fifth despite having a quick car all year, not quite managing to challenge for race wins on a regular basis. The Nissan team had recovered well after a terrible 1988 to pose a genuine threat to the Sierras on the tighter, tyre-sensitive circuits.

Disappointments of the year included the disasters that befell Miedecke Motorsport, and the absence of a factory Holden effort. Miedecke looked poised to finally capitalise on the potential he'd shown since the Castrol 500 in 1987, with a team of excellent personnel - including Ross Stone - and finally decent sponsorship. Then came the disaster of Lakeside. With almost nothing salvageable off the wreck, the building of a replacement put an unplanned strain on the team's budget, although Kenwood and Yokohama did kick in to help the team out in a crisis. Sadly it was a setback from wich the team never quite recovered, not helped by Bathurst and Adelaide, but more of that later.

The no-show of Holden this year helped contribute to the state of touring car racing today. We only have to look to 1990 and 1992 to see what the VL was finally capable of once fully developed. It's not hard to imagine a slightly different picture had any development work been done on the car through 1989. The hole left by their absence wasn't filled by privateers, most of whom didn't have the money or expertise to develop the car, while Larry Perkins busied himself with his engineering business, proving popular with AUSCAR and Formula Holden racers. Although the VL wouldn't have been fully competitive through 1989 perhaps with a cohesive factory development program, suitable driven by challenges from Les Small at Roadways, the car would have been competitive enough to challenge for podiums and even wins at places like Winton (where Larry qualified slower than he had in the old VL the previous year) and in the long distance races. With no Holdens in the top runners, dissent began to grow among fans - stoked along by Channel 7 - over the state of touring car racing, which would eventually lead to the 1991 ultimatum delivered to CAMS by Ford, Holden, and Channel 7... but more on that later.

Meanwhile, Toyota took out the Manufacturers' Championship, courtesy of George Fury's win at Winton.

Also worth a mention is the Jim Clark Cup, a very unofficial championship that was devised and awarded by industry journalists and Stuckey Tyre Service. It was specifically for normally-aspirated cars and was named in honour of the seperate Formula 1 Drivers' championship for normally aspirated cars in 1987.

Points were awarded in the F1 format of 9,6,4,3,2,1. I've put it together as best I could, but if it's wrong it doesn't really matter anyway since it wasn't an official championship! Funnily enough, it was given better coverage than Manufacturer's Championship points...
