Video: How to go from last to 1st at Bathurst

We’ve seen some extraordinary drives in motorsport when punctures do their best to ruin the party. Lewis Hamilton’s win at Silverstone in 2020 with only three functioning tyres springs to mind, as does Colin McRae’s heroic drive to victory, and the WRC title, at the RAC Rally in 1995. Jim Clark’s near-unbelievable fight through the field to third after a puncture put him a lap down at Monza in 1967 is a stunner, too. Today we’re taking a moment to look back at another monstrous drive, that of Larry Perkins in the 1995 Bathurst 1,000.
