Red Is Back!

After three lean years in which it has missed out on glory in the biggest motor racing event in this country, the Bathurst 1000, Holden roared back to victory lane yesterday with a dominant result which left the rival Ford teams in their wake.

The official Holden Racing Team took out the victory – leading fourteen other Holdens home inside the top twenty finishers. That’s right – fifteen out of the first twenty, which included nine inside the top ten, and the first four cars home – harking back to the real glory years of the late 1970’s.

In true tradition though, the Ford teams will no doubt come out with all guns blazing in 2010. However, as a Holden fan, yesterday will be hard to beat, and will represent a landmark in the history of Holden in the sport.
