INFORMATION ABOUT OUR ROUNDS:

Round 1 - Volkers To The Max

Max Volkers started racing in 1956 in a VW but quickly progressed to Holdens where his speed and success then drew the attention of Ford who provided Max with a Ford Cortina GT. A Lotus Cortina followed and Max fought many memorable battles with Brian Michelmore’s Lotus Cortina. After the Lotus Cortina Max drove a variety of Ford Falcon GT’s, Holden Monaros and a Ford Capri Sports Sedan. He drove a HWM Jaguar in the 1962 Australian GT Championship at Lakeside and competed in three Tasman Series races in an MRC Lotus. Max was a stalwart of Australian motor racing and claims his greatest race was finishing 4th in the first Australian Touring Car Championship at Orange in 1960, being the first Holden home behind the three Jaguars and beating all the other Holdens.

 

Round 2 - St Mary’s Trophy

The St Mary’s Trophy race is held annually at the Goodwood motor racing circuit in England as part of the “Goodwood Festival of Speed”. In the first race for the 2006 St Mary’s Trophy Peter Brock had qualified 5th and finished 4th in his Holden 48-215 (#05). Sadly this race was Peter Brock’s last motor race.

Round 5 - Fairmont 41

In April 1967 Ford Australia entered a Ford Fairmont XR  V8 in the Surfers Paradise 4-Hour touring car race.  Driven by Frank Matich and Harry Firth it finished 2nd.  This Fairmont (race number 41) became Australia’s first home-grown V8 touring car, and was the basis for the Ford Falcon GT which won the 1967 Bathurst “500” driven by Harry Firth and Fred Gibson. Fairmont #41 was the genesis of Australian V8 Supercar racing.  The Holden Monaro GTS V8 did not arrive until July 1968.
