1985 Bathurst 1,000 – Group A weapons a long way from home
In the video above, Like the NFL coming to the UK, Group A cars hammering Bathurst at first appears strange. The dreary drizzly climate more befitting of a Jaguar XJS or a Volvo 240 is gone, in favour of relentless Aussie heat haze. Of course, Bathurst offers the twist of more left-field entries taking to its swooping turns alongside conventional (is there such a thing?) Group A machinery. Mustang Foxbody, we’re looking at you. We can’t wait to see some of these animals in action at 75MM.
