I still believe that the protest against the Aussie Sierra's (or at least, those with no English/European connection, not counting the Swedish Sierra) was not done to find any illegalities, it was simply done to disrupt race preparations. Why else would the protest have been lodged as soon as final qualifying finished and not earlier in the week? Although I think they did plan it that way, they were also shocked that the fastest Commodore (Perkins) was over 4.5 seconds slower than Dick Johnson's pole winning car.

Had to laugh at Walkinshaw's reason for only protesting the Australian built Sierra's....."they were the fastest ones". No credibility there since he protested the 12th placed Shell car, yet left alone the Moffat (Eggenberger) car and the Rouse kit Miedecke / Bagnall cars which were 4th, 5th and 6th fastest. Mad Andy and Bags also had Steve Soper and Pierre Dieudonné as co-drivers....

Interestingly with the full race released on DVD last year including what was happening during the ad breaks, Channel 7 was on-board with Brock during an ad break when he hit the tyre, yet it was never replayed.
