Compatriot Glen Melling, meantime, will be giving his WASCC mates a serious run for their money in his Jasmat Steel Fabrications 6000cc Holden Commodore. He’ll have the pedal to the metal, belting down the famous 1.916km Conrod Straight – quite likely on the tail of Victorian Rusty French and the Ford Mustang TA2 600, pictured below.
These guys are just five of the stellar field of 55 drivers ready to do battle over three 10 extreme laps around the 6.231km Mount Panorama, one of the most celebrated of the world’s race circuits. The line-up is impressive with top level Spaceframe and Chassis Sports Sedans up against genuine V8 Touring Cars of past eras.
A Friendly rivalry
“Combined Sedans gives drivers of a number of different car classes the chance to race at the Mountain that they otherwise wouldn’t have, if the field was restricted to just one class type. The competitors throughout the field battle with each other in their respective classes. But taking home the outright victory is the goal for a number of the front runners.”
