More classic action from Australia's Super Speedway

THE first Super Speedway where NASCAR stock cars hosted a race outside North America, the Calder Park Thunderdome in Melbourne was Bob Jane's dream that he turned into a reality.

It was big, booming and attracted plenty of fans, though sadly this form of racing has disappeared from Australia.

But we’ve bringing the good times back on this volume of Classic Australian Motorsport Volume 8 with some more classic races and great action from the 'Dome.

On this release we take a look at some classic races at the banked 1.8-kilometre tri-oval that brought the best of American style racing to Aussie audiences with hometown and imported drivers duking it out.

First up on this release is the 1990 Moomba Cup from March of that year, featuring action from two heats of AUSCAR racing, the HQ Holdens and two 50 lap heats of NASCAR action, featuring Allan Grice’s Aussie-built Commodore up against the traditional American model stock cars, including Pontiacs, Chevrolets and Oldsmobiles.

Also included on this release is the grand final of the 1991/92 Australian Super Speedway season from the Thunderdome as champions were crowned in AUSCAR and NASCAR competition.

We take in both heats of the Snickers 200 NASCAR event won by future NASCAR champion Kim Jane, as well as the pair of heats that made up the Yella Terra 200 AUSCAR event that delivered a breakthrough win for Bruce Williams and another title victory for the 'King of Keilor', Brad Jones.

This DVD release celebrates an incredible era of Australian motorsport where the Calder Park Thunderdome wrote itself into the history books in this country in a way no other venue ever will again.

Run Time: Approximately 3 Hours, 56 Minutes
