Bathurst 1977 Query

Just started watching the Bathurst 1977 DVD, and have a question about the race start.

It appears from the DVD, the cars were pushed out from the pits and gridded up in start order.

It then seems that they we’re given a three minute board, then a countdown to the green flag being dropped for the race start.

In those days they didn’t get a warm lap or sighting lap before the start of the race?

It could be some camera footage missing, but it would interesting starting on cold tyres and a heavy fuel load.

No warm up lap.I would have to check my Great Race Annuals to confirm but not sure there were warm up laps at 1000 before WTCC in 1987 at least.No race morning warm ups either.

There were "warm-up"laps behind a course car starting in either '83 or '84.

But still a significant length of time from the completion of those laps to the start of the race.

1979 or 1980 was the last time they pushed the cars onto the grid. By 1981 they did a parade lap instead around to the grid, did the pageantry then straight into the race.

As Alan says 1987 was the first time they did a proper warmup lap just prior to the race start, from memory it was two warmup laps in 1987 too? Did they have a warm up session in 1987, or did that come in for 1988?
