Brock and the Repco Around Australia Trial

Interesting article in the latest Auto Action, discussing the 40th anniversary of event, the various teams and Brocks win.

The Commodore 1,2, 3 finish along with Brock’s victory must have sent Holden PR into over drive.

Six weeks later Brock one again at Bathurst in the mighty A9X.

He also transitioned into a teetotalling vegan and won V8 Supercar races in his 50's.
