REVIEW: In what was their final blast around Mount Panorama, the big-winged and big-wheeled Group C touring cars produced a 1984 James Hardie 1000 of epic proportions.

The action began from the flag-drop when a dramatic start-line pile-up blocked the track and the race had to be restarted. Pole-sitter George Fury had to set a record lap to take pole position in his Nissan Bluebird Turbo, yet Peter Brock’s Commodore was able to capitalize on the restart and settle into a comfortable lead.

Alan Grice’s Roadways Commodore and Dick Johnson’s V8 Falcon proved to be Brock’s main threats and the lingering presence of Allan Moffat in the “giant-killer” rotary Mazda RX-7 was also a challenge not to be dismissed. In the end it was the professionalism and experience of the factory Holden Dealer Team that shone through, Brock and co-driver Larry Perkins sealing an historic 1-2 form finish result clear of teammates John Harvey/David Parsons. Relive this great era of Australian motor racing when the “big bangers” took to the mountain for the very last time.
