The challenging Mount Panorama motor racing circuit at Bathurst, New South Wales, is famous not just in Australia but throughout the motor racing world. From the first meeting in 1938 until 1973, cars of widely differing types and configuration raced here.
Sports cars, "open wheelers" and saloons all competed in their respective classes. Famous marques and cars such as the Dixon Riley, Alfa Romeo P3, Frazer Nash, MG, Lago Talbot, Maserati 250F, Cooper 500, Torana, Charger and Mustang are the very stuff of Bathurst motor racing, as were the drivers, amongst whom were Kleinig, Whiteford, Davison, Brabham, Bartlett and Moffatt.
Every race is detailed here, with entry lists giving every car, every driver, and also the stories of what happened prior to, during and after the races - great anecdotes. Alarming escapes (both on and off the track) and some audacious ruses to outwit authority.
These are the stories and events that made Bathurst a household word amongst the racing fraternity everywhere.
