1987 Australian Group A Touring Car Races - Discussion & Results

Moving on to 1987. Plenty of races to cover. The Shell Ultra-Hi Australian Touring Car Championship, 2-litre championship, AMSCAR and the various one-off races, this year including the endurance races, as there were no championship for those races.

Sources:
Australian Motor Racing Year 1987/88
Bathurst 1987 - book and DVD
Autosport
A bit of Motor Race Timing material before that site went off line
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1987_Au...ing_Car_season

I used to have plenty of VHS material from the ATCC, but still have plenty of notes from this source. As usual entry lists and official results would be very welcome.

15/2/1987 - Castrol Clash - Oran Park South Circuit, NSW

Castrol Clash
Oran Park South Circuit, NSW (15/2/1987)

Circuit Length: 1.96 km
Race Distance: 25 laps
Weather: Rain clearing

Oran Park was celebrating its 25th anniversary, and on the programme was the first Group A race for 1987 in Australia. A 25-lapper on the original short-circuit drew a solid local entry, with the bigger names mostly still on their way home from New Zealand's Nissan-Mobil Series. Larry Perkins entered, but didn't quite make it back in time.

Cars making their debut were Colin Bond's long-awaited Alfa Romeo 75, and two Ford Sierra RS Cosworths from the OXO team. Tony Noske planned to have his first run in his ex-Perkins VK but put it into the wall during practice, while Phil Ward had the first of many drives in his ex-AMG Mercedes-Benz 190E.

Reed mastered the greasy early conditions to run out a comfortable winner from Bond. Laurie Hazelton backed his Volvo into the pit wall late in the race, injuring a TV cameraman. Magazine sources disagree over whether the crash caused the race to be stopped, something I suspect the TV coverage would solve.

1/3/1987 - ATCC1 - Calder Park, Vic

1987 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 1 - Calder Park, VIC (1/3/1987)

Circuit Length: 2.40 km
Race Distance: 60 laps
Weather: Overcast

The big story before the race meeting was Holden's dumping of Peter Brock a week prior. The originally planned 3-car attack was pared down to two, with the team's new VL auctioned off to raise funds. Gary Scott was drafted in to replace the departing Allan Moffat and John Harvey.

The JPS team debuted the new BMW M3 - not yet officially homologated until race-day - along with Dick Johnson's new Sierras, now in the red and yellow colours of Shell as part of a rumoured million-dollar sponsorship deal. Grice was back in a Roadways-prepared VK, alongside him Graeme Crosby, while Andrew Miedecke joined the OXO team to drive the #35 car alongside Don Smith. Unchanged apart from Scott's departure was the Nissan team, with two cars for George Fury and Glenn Seton, the team having sorted out their tyre-chewing issues from Bathurst 1986.

The front row had a new look to it, a wet qualifying session saw Richards and Johnson qualifying their new cars 1-2. It would be Dick's best qualifying performance of the ATCC.

The rolling start works against the men on the front row, the normally-aspirated runners coming the the fore. Perkins makes a storming start before outbraking himself at the end of the straight and running off the circuit, letting Seton through into a lead he wouldn't lose. Brock, Fury, and a recovering Perkins would give chase, until Brock dropped out with engine issues.

8/3/1987 - ATCC2 - Symmons Plains, TAS

1987 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 2 - Symmons Plains, TAS (8/3/1987)


Circuit Length: 2.41 km
Race Distance: 60 laps
Weather: Overcast

A much smaller field appeared seven days later at Symmons Plains, but all the lead runners were there. Grice and Fury locked out the front row, the Commodore driver leading the race comfortably until overheating crippled the car with 10 laps to go. Fury went on to win from Richards, who charged through to 2nd as the bigger cars ran out of tyres after half distance. The Sierras teams were still struggling to replicate the results from their European counterparts, turning down the boost and sacrificing speed for reliability.

22/3/1987 - U2LATCC1 - Winton, VIC

1987 Under 2 Litre Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 1 - Winton, VIC (22/3/1987)


Circuit Length: 2.03 km
Race Distance: 25 laps

The first round of the 2 litre championship would see their biggest entry for a standalone round in either year of the championship. All the main little-car runners were there, the field only bolstered by two Group E production car runners. The race was dominated by the factory 1600cc Toyotas, Smith winning comfortably from team-mate Price in the AE86 coupes.

Of interest is Mark Skaife, who made his race debut for the Peter Jackson Nissan team at this round.

27/3/1987 - AMSCAR1 - Amaroo Park, NSW

James Hardie Industries Iplex AMSCAR Series
Round 1 (27/3/1987)


Circuit Length: 1.946 km

The first AMSCAR round of the year saw Frank Gardner enter three of the little M3s, with the team's engine builder Ludwig Finauer making his first Group A start. Peter Williamson also entered his Supra, hopefully free of the bad luck that seemed to have plagued it since the car dealer brought it into the country.

The rounds would follow the same structure: three heats of 5, 10 and 15 laps. The winner of the round was a surprise, Trevor Ashby upsetting the JPS armada after Richards' exhaust problems in heat 2. Ashby's win in that heat would be the last race win for a Commodore (excluding Brock's 'eventual' win at Bathurst) until the end of 1988.

5/4/1987 - ATCC3 - Lakeside, QLD

1987 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 3 - Lakeside, QLD (5/4/1987)


Circuit Length: 2.41 km
Race Distance: 60 laps
Weather: Overcast

Crosby couldn't find any sponsorship so the Roadways team were down to one car for Grice, but it was a brand-spanking-new VL, the first to run in the ATCC. Meanwhile, the former factory team were also down to one car after Gary Scott crashed Brock's #05 during mid-week testing. Brock would race #6 until his new VL was ready, qualifying it on the front row next to pole-sitter Seton.

Seton would lead from the start, before local hero Johnson powered through the field into the lead. It wasn't to last, the engine crying enough just after half-distance, the same taking out team-mate Hansford a few laps later. At another tyre-sensitive track, Richards' M3 again came through for the win, from Seton and Longhurst.

Post-race scrutineering revealed illegal impellers in the turbochargers of the Johnson cars. As the entrant, Dick was found guilty of presenting illegal cars and given a ban by CAMS, even if it was for only seven days. Dick said the impellers were the same as those being used in Europe...

I'm not sure whether to classify the Johnson cars as being disqualified or not. IIRC, I don't think my sources have. The OXO cars were for a similar offence later in the year.

26/4/1987 - ATCC4 - Wanneroo Park, WA

1987 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 4 - Wanneroo Park, WA (26/4/1987)


Circuit Length: 2.41 km
Race Distance: 55 laps
Weather: Overcast

All the main runners made the long trek west to Wanneroo while several locals made up the rest of the field.

Fury put his Skyline on pole, but his efforts came to naught when he broke an axle at the start. He lost several laps as repairs were made, the Talmalmo farmer eventually setting the fastest lap of the race.

Perkins led first time across the line, but was passed by Seton into turn one. From there, the Skyline was never headed. Perkins, meanwhile, became embroiled in a huge scrap with Allan Grice, the two Commodore runners rubbing panels on several occasions. Johnson carefully picked his way past the pair to take second. The battle eventually took its toll, with Grice pitting for a new set of rubber. Seton ran out a comfortable winner from Johnson, Perkins, and Richards.

3/5/1987 - ATCC5 - Adelaide International Raceway, SA

1987 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 5 - Adelaide International Raceway, SA (3/5/1987)


Circuit Length: 2.41 km
Race Distance: 60 laps
Weather: Overcast

Adelaide's long front straight was expected to suit the Commodores and the turbos, but at the end of qualifying it was Richards' black JPS BMW on pole. The two M3s had towed each other down the straight, the tow being enough for the #3 M3 to top the timesheet from Perkins and Grice.

However, another rolling start (in an unusual 3-2-3 formation to reflect the Adelaide grid) saw the little black car swamped by the bigger ones, with Perkins leading Grice and Fury into the first corner. The top order was steady for a few laps, before Fury dived below Grice heading into the bowl to take second. Johnson was trapped behind the two JPS cars for several laps before moving past them one-by-one. Longhurst brushed the wall with the left rear coming onto the straight, the bent panel eventually blowing the tyre sending him to the pits late in the race. Johnson would soon take the lead from Perkins, with Fury soon following the Ford pilot through. Seton blew an engine around half distance, while Perkins and Grice resumed their battle from the week before. This time the Roadways pilot tapped the back of the Perkins' Commodore entering turn 1, and was lucky not to crash into the spinning Enzed car.

In the end, Johnson would win comfortably from Fury, who held out Grice for second.

31/5/1987 - ATCC6 - Surfers Paradise, QLD

1987 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 6 - Surfers Paradise, QLD (31/5/1987)


Circuit Length: 2.41 km
Race Distance: 46 laps
Weather: Cloudy

Delayed by a week due to flooding, this would turn out to be the final time the ATCC ventured to Surfers Paradise Raceway before it closed down at the end of the year. Grice was scheduled to miss this race as it clashed with the World 600 NASCAR race, but Commodore numbers were maintained as the HDT welcomed back Gary Scott, Brock finally debuting his new VL. Meanwhile, John Giddings was now in the second OXO Sierra after buying the car from Don Smith.

Johnson put his Sierra on pole but blew the engine half was around the first lap, Hansford capping off a bad day for the Shell team when his engine went south a lap later. Scott put in a great drive to run near the front in the first half of the race, but dropped back as his tyres wore out. The two M3s looked after their tyres, Richards running out a comfortable winner.

Miedecke had his best run of the year finishing second, but post-race scrutineering revealed illegalities in the turbochargers of both OXO cars. They raced the rest of the year under appeal but eventually were found guilty, receiving the same 7-day punishment as Johnson and exclusion from the results of Surfers, Sandown, and Amaroo.

7/6/1987 - ATCC7 - Sandown Park, VIC

1987 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 7 - Sandown Park, VIC (7/6/1987)


Circuit Length: 3.90 km
Race Distance: 30 laps
Weather: Sunny

The biggest field of the year rolled up to Sandown, where the race would go ahead without television coverage after a technician's strike. The two Skylines of Kent Baigent and Graeme Bowkett made their way across the Tasman for the first time in 1987.

The two Peter Jackson Skylines dominated proceedings, Fury moving aside in the closing laps to let Seton earn maximum championship points. Richards left Sandown with no points after a disasterous first lap for the JPS team. A first corner clash with Miedecke sent both M3s running over the exit kerb; Longhurst retired on the spot after the sump was ripped off the engine, while Richards dented his. The dent would starve the engine of oil, the M3's engine crying enough on the last lap.

Meanwhile, the Under 2 Litre Championship had its second round, run concurrently with the ATCC round. The results were taken after - I think - 20 laps, not the full 30 lap ATCC distance. I don't have full results of this, but Skaife won.

William Dale Jr should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
5/7/1987 - ATCC9 - Oran Park, NSW

1987 Shell Ultra Australian Touring Car Championship
Round 9 - Oran Park, NSW (5/7/1987)


Circuit Length: 2.62 km
Race Distance: 50 laps
Weather: Overcast with Showers

With only three points between Seton and Richards in the championship, both teams entered three cars in an effort to win. JPS had their regular lineup of Richards, Longhurst and Finauer, while Nissan entered a third Skyline for John Bowe to join Seton and Fury. Eventually though, neither team's third car would play a significant part in the championship decider.

Again, this one's on YouTube too, so go have a watch! One of the better title deciders in ATCC history.
