William Dale Jr should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
31/7/1988 - AMSCAR4 - Amaroo Park, NSW

James Hardie Building Products AMSCAR Series
Round 4 (31/7/1988)


Circuit Length: 1.946 km
Weather: Sunny

Johnson is in the commentary booth instead of a car for the final AMSCAR round, while Brock once again enters three BMWs. The ex-Sampson/Hunter/Trevethan Starion has its first run in Xerox Shop hands.

Heat 1
Race Distance: 10 laps

Longhurst comfortably wins the first heat, while Bond fights an ill-handling Sierra on his way to third. The AMSCAR title goes down to the last heat with Bond in a commanding position.

28/8/1988 - Pepsi 250 - Oran Park, NSW

Pepsi 250
Oran Park, NSW (28/8/1988)


Circuit Length: 2.62 km
Race Distance: 100 laps
Weather: Mostly Sunny

No top-line Sierras front for the meeting, except Bond, whose brand new car isn't exactly race-ready. The race is between the lead BMW and the factory Nissan. It's Fury in the Skyline that leads until their only pitstop; the Mobil crew get Brock out of the pits with a quick stop, and Skaife can't regain the position. It's Brock's first win on the road since the Surfers ATCC round in 1986, and will be BMW 's last win on Australian soil until 1991.

11/9/1988 - Enzed 500 - Sandown Park, VIC

Enzed 500
Sandown Park, VIC (11/9/1988)


Circuit Length: 3.90 km
Race Distance: 126 laps
Weather: Cloudy

Subtle changes were made to the track in advance of November's WSPC round. A couple of the corners in the tight infield section had been eased at the apex to increase speed and improve its flow, but it would be the last time touring cars would use the full "Grand Prix" circuit. The entry list drew out everyone who was serious about their Bathurst preparations. Holden Special Vehicles were out in force with the new VL but without Tom Walkinshaw, Armin Hahne stepping into the seat of the 11 car. Longhurst's car now bore the yellow of Benson & Hedges, Johnson/Bowe were in a new car while Johnson's ATCC-winner was shipped back from the UK, and most of the Commodore privateers had upgraded to the new Group A SS spec. The Nissan team were back to full strength, with the #15 car repaired after rolling at Caltex Chase during the Tooheys 1000 launch day at Bathurst.

Johnson dominated qualifying, stoppping the clocks over a second quicker than Longhurst in second. The Nissans appeared to be more competitive, Seton putting his third, while the HSV Commodores lined up sixth and ninth on their debut.

Shades of the ATCC round at the start as Longhurst made a good initial jump, but broke a driveshaft. The time lost would put the #25 car out of contention, but its speed augered well for Bathurst. Meanwhile, Seton's good grid spot went for naught when the gearbox broke. It would prove to be Seton's last complete racing lap for the Nissan team. Johnson led early, before recurring overheating problems forced him to drop back. The lead swapped between Moffat, Fury and Perkins, before the second Skyline stopped with a broken tailshaft. Meanwhile, the two Mobil BMWs suffered reliability problems, and didn't appear to be fast enough to win anyway. Moffat/Hansford went on to take a comfortable win - Moffat's first since 1984 - from Perkins/Hulme. Confusion surrounded third place as Johnson/Bowe limped their Sierra to the line on the starter motor, having spent the last few laps in the pits overheating. Fourth-placed Noske/Moore contended that they had completed more laps than the Shell duo, but the result stood.

William Dale Jr should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2/10/1988 - Tooheys 1000 - Mount Panorama, NSW

Tooheys 1000
Mount Panorama, NSW (2/10/1988)

Circuit Length: 6.216 km
Race Distance: 161 laps
Weather: Sunny

Unlike the previous year the invasion of European teams didn't happen. Schnitzer got as far as entering two cars but didn't make the trip, one of their entries taken up by a NZ BMW. Wolf Racing brought a car and team out for Mark Petch and Robbie Francevic, while Ruedi Eggenberger came out to run Allan Moffat's ex-Eggenberger Sierra, bringing with him a team of mechanics and Klaus Niedzwiedz. Niedzwiedz regular co-driver, Klaus Ludwig, didn't return, but Dieudonne and Soper came out to co-drive the Miedecke Motorsport cars. Meanwhile, Nissan favourite Anders Olofsson made his first trip to Bathurst to co-pilot Skyline #15.

Brinksmanship was the order of raceweek as protests and counter-protests flew. Tom Walkinshaw protested the eligibility of cars #4, #17, #18, #25, and #28, but later bizzarely withdrew the protest on any of the cars should they win the race, "...in the interests of the sport". The Johnson team then protested the factory HSV Commodores for steering and body irregularities. All Sierras were eventually cleared - although a turbocharger issue with Bond's car was not resolved until long after the race - while the Commodores were found to be illegal. The protested Sierra teams claim the Friday night teardown of their cars compromised their race preparations, which was likely the whole point of the protest in the first place.

Meanwhile, there was a race to be run. Johnson, Bowe, Longhurst, and Niedzwiedz battled it out through qualifying, but it's Johnson and Bowe who lock up the front row, after Niedzwiedz's bid is derailed by a gearbox problem in the final qualifying session. With the top 10 runoff not counting for the grid this year, the times set during the week settle who starts where on the Sunday. Eight Sierras fill the top 10, with Perkins and Fury the only non-Ford runners. Walkinshaw would start from 13th in his English-built Commodore, just ahead of Armin Hahne in the Wolf Sierra. The lead Mobil BMW qualifies 16th, just ahead of Seton in the second Skyline. Several privateers miss the cut in qualifying after the 110% rule was strictly applied by FISA officials.

Johnson, Niedzwiedz and Longhurst took off at the start, setting a breakneck pace while Bowe watched on in fourth. Disaster for Walkinshaw as suspension failure eliminated his Commodore after just 5 laps. Attrition hit the top 10 early, with Miedecke, Granberg, Bagnall and Fury all retiring or suffering delays in the first hour. Brock is stuck behind the Commodore of Harvey, the two old teammates having a fair old dice which at one point saw the Mobil M3 take a trip across the sandtrap at Skyline. Meanwhile, Johnson picked up a slow puncture going up the hill in lapped traffic. The tyre blows half-way down Conrod, sending the Shell car into a lurid, high-speed spin. He dragged the car slowly back to the pits, but drivetrain damage causes the car to be retired. The team was soon reduced to one car when Bowe brought #28 in with a blown engine. Out front was Niedzwiedz alone, with Longhurst dropping a lap after making two trips to the pits to sort out a sticking throttle. The battle of the Commodores settled down with Grice heading to the pits with gearbox problems. Terry Finnigan's Commodore punctured a tyre, depositing the carcass on Conrod. An unsighted Brock slammed into it, smashing the oil cooler and delaying the #56 car. Richards is put into #57 with Brock scheduled to get in at the next stop, but the car soon retired with overheating problems. John Andretti crashed at Reid Park, bringing out the pace car.

The race finally settled down, with the ANZ Sierra leading by a lap. Hahne, Mezera, Hulme, and Bond scrapped for the minor placings. Johnson gets into the #18 car, but a broken starter motor delayed the car for 6 minutes. The Scott/Nakaya Starion worked its way up into the top 5 before gearbox failure ended their run. The Finnigan car blew an engine and parked off the road at Skyline, where it was later hit by the #54 BMW. The Crowe/Janson car was the strongest remaining M3, working its way inside the top 10 as the afternoon rolled on. The Peanut Slab Sierra retired from the top five with ovearheating, while Walkinshaw hopped into car #10. When the Willmington Commodore stopped in the sand trap at Skyline, the pace car came out to pick up all the dead cars. On the restart, Longhurst passed Hansford to move back onto the lead lap, but the end was nigh for the ANZ car. The car came in to make its final stop with 30 laps to go, but it was apparent something was amiss. The car was soon retired with a blown headgasket. Longhurst took the lead from Walkinshaw, Bowe, Bond, and Janson. The HSV Commodore soon retired, though, with no oil pressure. Mezera hopped in for the final stint, narrowly avoiding the spinning Lusty Commodore, to take the win. Johnson used three cars to finish second, while Bond/Jones take third despite a late stop. The Janson/Crowe M3 finishes a remarkable 4th outright in winning its class, while the class-winning Corolla snuck inside the top 10.

William Dale Jr should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
12/11/1988 - South Australia Cup - Adelaide Grand Prix Circuit, SA

South Australia Cup
Adelaide Grand Prix Circuit, SA (12/11/1988)


Circuit Length: 3.78 km
Race Distance: 32 laps
Weather: Sunny

Most of the top runners had made the trip to New Zealand, but unlike the previous year's dramas all were back in time to prepare for the last race on Australian soil for 1988. However, the entry included no Moffat or Petch Sierras, while Pukekohe-winner Andrew Miedecke was racing at the Intertec 500 in Japan.

Sierras lead from the start, but the hot conditions soon gets to them; Longhurst blows a head gasket, while both Shell cars struggle with heat-related misfires. Into the lead surge the two HSV Commodores of Perkins and Denny Hulme, to record the General's only win of 1988. It is also the marque's first win since race 1 of the 1987 AMSCAR series, and their last until the 1990 Tooheys 1000.

The team seemed to lose their way after this, struggling with engine reliability. When did they start running Motec engine management? Was it from the beginning? It was great to see their resurgence in 1990, capped by Bondy's two wins at Lakeside and Mallala.
They started using Motec in 1989 which was a horror season for them.

The two HSV Commodores should be shown as DISQ at Bathurst rather than DNF.

So the disqualification was retrospectively applied to the results (as it should be)?

It's just that I've just never found any record of the results being updated to reflect the DQ, not even in the most recent edition of Australia's Greatest Motor Race.

They were never disqualified. Walkinshaw dropped his protest against Longhursts car after it won. But Bondy had a big fight against the protest on his Turbo that went on for months. In the end the charge could not be proven and the fact it was purchased from Garrets the protest was thrown out.

I really believe now as I did then that Walkinshaws protest was to upset the race prep on the leading Sierras, I dont think he expected to find anything but by protesting suspensions and engines etc and having them taken apart before the race it did upset the teams involved. One interesting point was the only Sierra team up there that he didn't protest was the ANZ Allan Moffat team. Which were running Eggenberger Sierras and which only a year before had been found to be illegal.

Quite right, no Sierras were disqualified, but both factory HSV Commodores were outed. They were found guilty of using the VK Commodore steering rack and modifying the crossmember to suit it. The VK's was preferable to the VL's variable ratio rack, but it wasn't homologated for use. Neal Lowe - formerly with the HDT - knew this, protested, and both cars were disqualified. I've never seen this reflected in race results, though.


I agree with you about the purpose of Walkinshaw's protest, but wonder why he didn't protest either the Eggenberger car of Moffat's, Wolf car of Mark Petch, or either of the Miedecke Sierras (which had Eggenberger drivers aboard). Maybe the conspiracy theory that it was orchestrated by Eggenberger as payback for the year before wasn't far off?

It was strang thought that he did protest the CMS Team from Sweden of Ulf Granberg and Kiwi Inky Tulloch, didn't matter much as they only lasted a few laps, but it was the only European Sierra Protested. I often wondered that after the arse kicking that the Eurpeans got at the hands of Dick and John Bowe at Silverstone weather Eggenberger was giving Walkinshaw info on what he believes was making the cars so fast and he protested accordingly

If payback was the motivation from the Eggenberger camp, why didnt the protest in the B&H Sierra stick, I mean Mr Gardner was the team boss there, and wasnt it JPS BMW's protest that saw the Eggenberger cars scrubbed the previous year?

There was a lot of pressure on about not having a second year were the winner of the race is not know till months latter, so Walkinshaw agreed to drop it on what ever Sierra won the race. I think it was just bad luck for them that it was a Gardner car that won

Agreed. Walkinshaw advised the organisers he was dropping the protest at 11am. At that point the Eggenberger car was in the lead with Longhurst right behind but soon to lose a lap fixing a sticking throttle.
