I think the gaffa tape #9 was so they could so easily change it to a gaffa tape #7 for the following ATCC round's at Winton and Oran Park, where it ran as #27 in those two events.

They had a proper 7 on there alongside the 2 for Bathurst

Question about Bathurst 1990

Hi all. I seem to remember that during the 1990 1000 Tomas Mezera drove into the pits, Larry was a tad upset and whacked Tomas's helmet with his hand through the window, does anyone know if my memory is correct and what the hell was it all about.

1991.

I think Larry was trying to understand what Tomas was saying. Both were wearing helmets making communication difficult.

Nothing more sinister than that.

Although it did look a little aggressive on Larry's behalf.

Was 1991 when Tomas arrived in pit lane with a dead car and a frustrated Larry yanked the visor up it would appear because he couldn't hear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZ4h...2E6675&index=9

GRM still owns the yellow one don't they?
Rob Sherrard (i think) owned the '03 Bathurst 24hr winner
The third Team Brock built car i'm not sure who owns it?
For sale in Melbourne, has Brock history:

I think this is confirmed as the Sherrard car. He was using a Red one at various events in Tasmania and elsewhere.
He took it to NZ for a Targa http://www.rallysportmag.com.au/home...o-for-targa-nz
The photos on Sleuths page include a co-driver footrest and so on.
Certainly a nice piece of history for someone.
