REVIEW: This next release in the Classic Australian Motorsport series is one for touring car fans with a great selection of mid 1990s racing, including the one-off 1995 TAC Peter Brock Classic held at Calder Park in Melbourne.

A celebration of all forms of circuit racing named in honour of the nine-time Bathurst winner, this event was held on a Saturday afternoon and evening in November 1995 with the five-litre V8 touring cars the main draw card and two-litre Super Tourers and AUSCARs joining them on the bill. As it turned out, the man himself, Brock, ended up winning his own event overall in a field packed with quality including the likes of his new HRT teammate, Craig Lowndes. The footage of this race is released for the first time on DVD.

In keeping with the theme of V8 racing under lights there is also included the opening round of the 1996 Shell Australian Touring Car Championship on the short circuit at Eastern Creek. It was the first V8 event of the year, held three months after the Brock Classic and ended up being a magical round for championship debutante Lowndes. The young Holden ace claimed overall victory under lights, setting up an amazing championship-winning season.
