In terms of Bob Holden cars, there were 2 built from memory of the various Great Race books.

The first is the one that debuted in 1984 and went thru a number of Group 'A' logbooks as it was delivered across the world and back at Spa and Bathurst and the rest of the ATCC... and survived the "dance of the sugar plum Corollas" in '87 to win its class





The 2nd team car, I suspect is the one David Paterson is talking about, a car built for/with Wayne Bell, that became a Group 'A' unit. Here it is at Amaroo Park, in one shot hidden in the shade.. ahhh for simpler times!

Or you can see the works cars... or one of them.. with Mr Faulkner.. that looked quite quiet and relaxed around the garages...

Thanks for those pics GTR. I can clearly see that the first car is not mine, because the roll cage is quite different. My car is the second one, which wears #51. The pics appear to be from an ATCC round at Amaoro, but are they 1988 or 1989?

The pictures are definitely from 1989. Bob Holden ran Bill Buckle sponsorship in '89, and Matt Wacker's ex-McLeod VL is in the background. If all the photos are from the same meeting then, at a guess, they're from either Rd.1 of the '89 ATCC or Rd.3 of the '89 AMSCAR Series.

I've now got pics of my car from the '87, '88 & '89 ATCC, but still no '90 ATCC. Oddly, this was the year it did the most rounds, 6 out of of 8.

Many thanks to those who have already posted/sent me pictures.

Just an idea, David, but have you thought of trying to contact Mike Conway to see if he has any photos of the car from that year?
