Celebrating 600 ATCC/Supercars Race Wins
Holden has been a mainstay of the Australian Touring Car Championship since its inaugural race at Gnoo-Blas in 1960, when 17 cars, ranging from the 48-215 to the FJ and FE models, faced the starter. The dawn of the muscle car era brought Holden’s first championship race win, Norm Beechey downing a host of high-powered imports with his Holden Monaro GTS 327.
The wins kept coming as the championship transitioned into the Group C era in 1973, with a succession of Toranas and Commodores raced by heroes including Peter Brock, Colin Bond, Bob Morris and Allan Grice taking the marque to the top of the podium.
After a brief lull through the international Group A years, Holden struck back with the introduction of the five-litre V8 touring car rules in 1993 that put it head-to-head against traditional rival Ford. It was a battle that Holden’s teams and drivers fought fiercely, with legends like Brock, Larry Perkins and Jim Richards passing the torch to a new generation of stars led by Mark Skaife, Craig Lowndes, Garth Tander and Greg Murphy.
The cars they drove became synonymous with success: the VT Commodore set the pace for many seasons and through several model upgrades, before Holden’s ‘Billion Dollar Baby’, the VE Commodore, set a new record for wins surpassed only by its successor, the VF, campaigned by new stars led by Jamie Whincup and Shane van Gisbergen. Holden’s final Commodore, the ZB, secured the milestone 600th championship race win at Wanneroo Raceway in 2022 with Shane van Gisbergen’s triumph in Race 10.
