Classic Sports Sedans and Touring Car action from the Seven vault!
Amaroo Park Raceway holds a special place in the history of Australian motorsport and a special place in the hearts of race fans all over the country. The now-defunct circuit in Sydney hosted a wide range of racing action from its opening in 1967 right through to the last race held there in 1998.
On this special Seven Sport Magic Moments of Motorsport DVD release, we look back at three interesting events from this much-loved racetrack.
The vision included on this release was all saved from old format Umatic tapes – it could have been lost forever, but thankfully has been saved and is here for you to enjoy.
The first of three race events on this DVD is the 1980 round of the Australian Sports Sedan Championship featuring Allan Moffat’s mighty Chevrolet Monza taking on Jim Richards’ V8 Falcon at a time where the category featured a wide range of interesting cars. Also included is some Formula Ford open wheeler action from the same event.
Amaroo Park’s round of the 1981 Australian Sports Sedan Championship is also included on this release, featuring Allan Grice’s BMW turbo up against Tony Edmondson’s V8-powered Alfetta. In addition, there’s also some Better Brakes 3.5 litre touring car series action and Australian Formula 2 racing for open wheeler fans to enjoy.
Rounding out this release is the second round of the 1982 AMSCAR Series for touring cars featuring the ‘big dogs’ of the day; Peter Brock, Allan Moffat, Colin Bond Allan Grice, Dick Johnson and many more.
There’s a pair of heats of touring car action as well as the 25-lap, all-in final and Formula Vee, Series Production and Sports Sedan action to round out this jam-packed release of amazing Aussie motorsport action.
Sit back, relax and enjoy some brilliant old racing from a much-missed circuit that lives on via the Seven Sport Magic Moments of Motorsport series.Duration: Approximately 4 Hours and 3 Minutes
