Johnson dominates the race, but suffers a stub axle failure with just over 10 laps to go. Who inherits the win? That black BMW...again!

27/10/1985 - AEC5 - Surfers Paradise, QLD

Motorcraft 300
1985 Australian Endurance Championship
Round 5 - Surfers Paradise, QLD (27/10/1985)


Circuit Length: 3.2 km
Race Distance: 40 laps (90 laps scheduled, race duration reduced due to multi-car accident during first start)
Weather: Overcast and rainy

Heavy rains overnight had left the Surfers circuit well and truly waterlogged, including flooding the storm water drains around the circuit which forced the cancellation of supporting open-wheel races. More rain a few laps in mixed with oil left by the Davidson/Kramer Mustang caused over 2/3rds of the field to slip off into the ditch on the outside of Ipec corner. Greville Arnel was taken to hospital with neck injuries after Bond's Alfa slammed into his parked Starion as Arnel was getting out of the car. The carnage left Terry Finnigan leading John Smith; both had gone off in the oil and water but had somehow avoided getting stuck. The race was eventually stopped and completely restarted an hour later but without Brock and Harvey, both of whom had already caught a plane back to Melbourne! Skippy Parsons would take the wheel of the #7 Commodore.

Only 14 cars would take the restart, eventually won by Richards from O'Brien and Johnson. The Mustang led early before dropping back with tyres woes caused by a differential damaged in the carnage earlier, while bent suspension, also from the crash, meant O'Brien couldn't quite chase down Richards.

2/11/1985 - AGP Support Race - Adelaide Grand Prix Circuit, SA

AGP Support Race
Adelaide Grand Prix Circuit, SA (2/11/1985)


Circuit Length: 3.78 km
Race Distance: 15 laps
Weather: Sunny

All I've got from this race are the grid positions, courtesy of Channel 9's broadcast of the race.

No JPS cars but making up for that was the presence of Gerhard Berger, moonlighting on his Arrows F1 gig. Berger was driving Bob Jane's ex-Schnitzer 635, the car Ravaglia and Cecotto took to 2nd place at Bathurst. John Harvey jumped the start in a big way to be second by turn one, while Johnson had made a magnificent - legal - start to get to the chicane first. Harvey started to fall back into the clutches of the chasing pack, holding off Berger for a couple of laps until the Austrian got down the inside down pit straight. Contact in the braking area saw Harvey dispatch the orange BMW, Berger's race ending in the sand trap. From there, it was all Johnson, winning comfortably from Brock, O'Brien, Finnigan, and Bond (in the Toy Shop Alfa after the adventures at Surfers the week before).

Well, that's all I've got for 1985. AMRY and my Auto Actions were particularly unhelpful for this year. There were a lot of mistakes in the AMRY results pages: the results of both the Surfers ATCC and enduro were completely wrong, and several rounds had the fastest lap and qualifying time columns filled with N/A. Also, AMRY only contained the top 10 finishers.

I think RCNs would be helpful for filling out the results, as it doesn't look like Auto Action ran comprehensive race results at that point. Unfortunately, I don't have any from 1985

Regarding class structure it went as follows:

Class A: 0-2000 cc (perhaps 1001-2000 cc, as the 1000 cc minimum limit was upheld in the European championship)
Class B: 2001-3000 cc
Class C: over 3000 cc

This would make the Mike Minear Volvo 360 GLT a class A car, the Mazda RX-7 just into a class B car, just as the straight 5 Audi of Chris Heyer.

Can help with some car numbers;

Grice was #26 in the Toy Shop Alfa at Amaroo

Grice was #30 at Oran Park, alongside Tony Kavich in the Yellow Pages-liveried Commodore. This was the ex-Roadways Group C VK wasn't it? Did they run the car here, or Kavich's team itself with Grice doing the sorting?

Unfortunatly i don't think RCN will be that helpful, was 1985 the year it changed its name to "Racing Car" and was only bi-monthly, focusing on features? In mid-86 it changed back to the classic RCN (with Elizabeth Tuckey editing rather than Max Stahl), before Chevron bought it in late-1988.

The old Cherqued Flag magazine was going in those days and was pretty good, Rob Luck was the editor if I rember correctly.

Had Dick Johnson and John Smith amongst the columnists too.

They didn't hold back in their columns either, a real pity that PR these days muffles drivers views.


George Fury had a regular column in RCN too

They had some good stuff in it, just shame most of those publications have now gone by the wayside

Round 5 - Surfers Paradise, QLD (27/10/1985)


Circuit Length: 3.2 km
Race Distance: 40 laps (90 laps scheduled, race duration reduced due to multi-car accident during first start)
Weather: Overcast and rainy

Heavy rains overnight had left the Surfers circuit well and truly waterlogged, including flooding the storm water drains around the circuit which forced the cancellation of supporting open-wheel races. More rain a few laps in mixed with oil left by the Davidson/Kramer Mustang caused over 2/3rds of the field to slip off into the ditch on the outside of Ipec corner. Greville Arnel was taken to hospital with neck injuries after Bond's Alfa slammed into his parked Starion as Arnel was getting out of the car. The carnage left Terry Finnigan leading John Smith; both had gone off in the oil and water but had somehow avoided getting stuck. The race was eventually stopped and completely restarted an hour later but without Brock and Harvey, both of whom had already caught a plane back to Melbourne! Skippy Parsons would take the wheel of the #7 Commodore.

Only 14 cars would take the restart, eventually won by Richards from O'Brien and Johnson. The Mustang led early before dropping back with tyres woes caused by a differential damaged in the carnage earlier, while bent suspension, also from the crash, meant O'Brien couldn't quite chase down Richards.

You are missing the Kevin Clark Mustang that made it's debut in this race. It didn't crash in the first part but got knocked off by Dick in the second part. (I think Dick wanted to sell Kevin his 83 panels)

1985 Cars

Just a quick correction - the Ken Harrison Escort, which I bought off Ken after its Group A days, was not a 1600i but was his ex Group C Mk 2 Escort running as a Group A Mk 2 Escort Mexico, which has the 1600 Pinto engine. I suspect it is the only Group A Mk 2 Escort ever raced. Car is still around, running in historic Group C in its 1979 livery.

Quotet from William Dale Jr. A few numbers, change of class for Minear and six entries supposedly never made it to Winton. I'm wondering why Winton would have to wait till 1988, before being allocated a round of the ATCC again - or was it the organizers that decided to miss the ATCC?

I'm looking for team principals as well, and would like to know who would be considered for the following two teams:
Toyota Team Australia - Tony Niovanni?
Network Alfa - ?
