AWESOME Mark, yeah i had those posters as well. Brings back heaps of memories as we were at all those races. I remember the grand prix debut of the GTV6 as my old man was always eager to try beat the traffic - leave as soon as the GP was finished.
I said nah got to see this car- his comment....... Rubbish won't do anything or will breakdown, did i smile all the way home - he even commented on how good it sounded. He now likes my GTV6

I have a lot of old photos from the same time i will scan and put up here, lets see how many we can collect.

Hi Tom

Excellent, I cant wait to see your photos, even if they are not 100% sharp. Something is better than nothing, not all of us where pro photographers back then. Maybe some other members will join us and put up pics from around the world. British and Australian saloon cars from the early eighties spring to mind.

A pic from my most memorable race, the day Nico Bianco went banana's. Atfer chasing the two Ford XR8's, first passing the one and then the other and in the process setting up a lap record for class U that was faster than the record for class T. The 3.0 GTV ran in the class below the XR8's and the BMW 745i due to engine size. However the 3.0 GTV often went for overall honors. This race was so good that I never took a single photo, many thanks to Kevin for the pic, something I have looked for, for 27 years. As of the race after this Alfa Romeo with drew from competition in S.A.
Once I find the article with the lap records in I will edit this post and add them.
