Three of Dick's Best!
A trip down memory lane with three of Dick Johnson’s best Australian Touring Car Championship race wins…
Sitting among a very select club of five-time Australian Touring Car Champions, Dick Johnson is a legend of Australian motorsport.
Chevron has dug deep into the Seven Sport archive and released three of the Ford legend’s victorious races from a memorable era of ATCC racing in the 1980s and 1990s.
We begin in the Group A era with the opening round of the 1988 ATCC at Calder in Melbourne as Johnson claimed victory in a turbo Sierra.
The same weekend saw the debut of a partnership with John Bowe that would last an incredible 11 years.
Next we fast-forward to Round 2 of 1990 at Symmons Plains in Tasmania as Johnson tackled old adversary Peter Brock and a horde of fellow Sierra drivers including Bowe, Glenn Seton and Colin Bond.
To round out, we move into the five-litre V8 era with Johnson’s popular win on home soil in Race 1 at Lakeside in 1994.
As a bonus extra we’ve also turned up some rare vision of the race that bagged Johnson his first ATCC crown at Lakeside in 1981.
This is a release all Dick Johnson, Ford and Australian motorsport fans must add to their collection.
