It is the Charlie O'Brien Bumpa T Bumpa 1985 Bathurst 1000 car that he bought from Frank Sytner in 1985. It was the C.C Motorsport/ BMW UK then Sytner car.
It is in Bathurst 1986 colour scheme and specs of 1986.
Charlie O'Brien is driving it at Phillip Island.
Im certainly interested, and look forward to seeing it down there. It looks great.

I'll be heading down there, just paid my share of the house rental. Been an annual event for me for quite a few years and I'm looking forward to another dose!

Are VE Holden Commodores really Historic? As far as I know you cannot race a FF built later than 1989 or carbon tub Formula Holdens such as Reynard 90D but you can race a 2007 Holden Commodore at the PI Historic meeting.

You can't race it, but you can super sprint it

At some point they will become historic, and that is ok. But lets not have them for a while yet.

Just checked the vhrr website for the entry list. Not available yet but says available early March, so just a few days before the meeting opens next Friday. Ill post a link as soon as it is available.

In the meantime they have published an updated press release. Noticed Andy Newall is not mentioned in the UK drivers attending. Hope his plans to be there are still intact and it is an oversight in the press release. He has become a regular in these parts for this meeting. Looking forward to seeing the Chevron too.

Anyway I will be there and look forward to catching up with any tenthers attending (dr bob and john that I know of)

The press release I mentioned

Quote:
Close competitive racing assured at Phillip Island as champions and legends compete

The Phillip Island Classic ‘Festival of Motorsport’ historic racing over the long weekend in March is shaping up to be highly competitive with many past champions and legends of the sport competing in classic cars of yesteryear.

In the JK, LB and Invitation events close racing is expected with Nick McDonald in the Repco Holden, David Reid in the Faux Pas and Andrew Makin in his first outing in the Nalla Special. Also racing in this class are two highly competitive ladies with Samantha Dymond, winner of the 2019 Diana Davison Ladies Trophy in the VHRR Club Championship, in the Lola Mk.1. against Elisabeth Bailey from NSW, racing the GAS Formula Vee plus some eight other Formula Vee’s.

Within MO and Invitation Racing, two-times Bathurst 1000 winner, John Bowe will drive Peter Strauss’s Formula1 BT31 (ex Jack Brabham), Laurie Bennett will be in the Elfin 600B, Sean Whelan in the BT30 Brabham, Andrew Robins and Andrew Robson in BT30 Brabham’s and the hard charging Penrite BT16 Brabham will be driven by Keith Simpson. Of great interest will be the competition between Nick Bennett in the Elfin 600 and his father Laurie.

Event Patron and six-time Bathurst 1000 Winner, Larry Perkins will be challenged in the 5 litre Touring Cars by Chris Stillwell, Touring Car Champion and son of Australian Motorsport legend Bib Stillwell driving the ex Dick Johnson AU Falcon, Ed Singleton, President of the Heritage Car Association in the GRM Valvoline Cummins VT Commodore, Brad Till driving the ex Ford Tickford Racing AU Falcon and Allan Nash and Garry Collins will be driving the ex Jack Daniels VE Commodores.

Historic Touring Car racing will feature Western Australian Paul Stubber who has just returned from the USA after competing in 40 race meetings. He will be driving his very fast 1969 Camaro against local legend John Mann in his 1969 Camaro. Also in the category are the fast Torana XU1’s of Andrew Williams, Daniel Van Stockrom and Garry Edwards.

Amongst Group C & A are three of the fastest Group A Ford Sierra cars in Australia driven by Bryan Sala, Chris Stillwell and Metodia (Tony) Karanfilovski who will be challenged by four-time Bathurst 1000 winner Greg Murphy in his first full historic race meeting. Greg will be at the wheel of Peter Sturgeon’s M3 BMW. Bathurst legend Charlie O’Brien will race a 365 CSI BMW, seven-times Bathurst 1000 winner Jim Richards will drive the JPS 635 CSI BMW. The crowd will also be treated to the sound and spectacle of two Jaguar XJS V12 cars of Mike Roddy and Anthony Pallas.

Under the historic Q & R category the fastest historic sports car in Australia, the McLaren M8F 8000cc 850BHP will be driven by young Harrison Jones from Queensland and he will be challenged by the two Porsche cars of Russell Kempnich (956c) and George Nakas (962). Also under this category there are 10 Sports 2000 racing.

Tom Tweedie in the Chevron Formula 5000, Guido Belgiorno-Netti in the1985 Ferrari 156/85 and Ian Ross in the Formula 1 Lola will be strongly challenged by five Formula A cars driven by Andrew McInnes, Geoff Doulman, Luke Doidge, Rohan Carrig and Ben Terbutt. Also in this category is the Indy Car, March 86C driven by Ian Buddery and of special interest will be the Kaditcha AF2 driven by Malcolm Oastler.

Throughout the weekend nine ladies will be racing with Clair Greg – Formula Ford, Angela Corradine – Formula Ford, Elizabeth Bailey – Formula Vee and Samantha Dymond – Lola Mk.1. and regularity competitors Deb Louing – Alfa Romeo, Jessica Penn – Caterham Seven, Louise Raper – George Reed Ford, Joanne Coad – Vauxhall Special and Helen Linder – Mini-Cooper S.

Seven overseas drivers including Adrian Reynard – UK, Richard Tarling – UK, Xavier Michel – France, Chris Hodgen – UK, Donald Boyack – UK Martin Whitlock – UK and Jaap Blijleven – Netherlands will race against the best in Australia to provide a spectacular weekend of historic motorsport at the Phillip Island Classic ‘Festival of Motorsport’, an event internationally recognised as one of the best in the world.

I thought the event at PI was a RACE for Heritage Touring Cars and the VE was in it?

There is a race category for Group C&A, and a supersprint category called "5 Litre Supersprint"

I haven't seen an entry list as yet, but I might presume that it will look something like the the 5 Litre demonstration that happened at the 2014 Winton Festival of Speed, also promoted by VHRR. All ex-Supercars, some as recent as (then) three years old.
