Out front, the Goss/Hahne XJ-S stayed out of trouble to record that historic victory – the first and only win for Jaguar. The BMW 635 CSi of Cecotto/Ravaglia finished second, with Walkinshaw/Percy completing the podium for an XJ-S one-three.
Enjoy these highlights with ace commentators Mike Raymond and former multiple race winner Allan Moffat joined by Neil Crompton, the man who fronts today’s V8 Supercars TV broadcast, in the pits.
Look out for the classic moment when Jim Richards gives Dick Johnson the thumbs up as the two tin-top heroes run side-by-side up Mountain Straight.
