    Original Bob Holden car under restoration at Road and Track (~2005) unsure of progress todate...


    Australia's very first Group A AE86 Sprinter, one of 4 built & raced by Bob Holden. Whislt Bob raced the car extensively in the Australan Touring Car series form 1984 to 1992, he also shipped it to New Zealand, & Europe to compete in world touring car events. Undoubtedly our most travelled and original Gp A car. Currently under restoration.


    Australias very first Group A AE86 Sprinter during restoration. A replacement front floor is being fitted (2005).


    Another ex Bob Holden Group A Sprinter being towed away to have a new front cut & turret fitted. In 2004 it was badly smashed at Mallala Raceway in South Aust. Under restoration.



    Bob Holden AE86 in its hey-day. This time at the Spa 24 hour race (Belguim) in 1988. This car was raced at the famous Spa and Nurburgring circuits before being bought back to Australia for the remainder of the ATCC season. Currently undergoing full restoration.


    Group A, AE86 in preparation for painting. After a race career spanning over 20 years, It needed lots of new panels to get it looking good; floorpan, left rear , radiator support & lower crossmember, and right front wing.


    TOM's AE82 FX-GT being scrutineered for Bathurst 1000 race, 1992. This famous race car was built by TOMS Japan to allow them to compete in the UK and Europe in the international Group A category, this being quite different to the Japanese only, GpN , where they had lots of experience. In the hands of Chris Dowsett, & prepared by TOMS UK, it won its class in the British Touring Car Championships for 1988 & 89, narrowly missing the outright win in 1988. An occasional co-driver was Tiff Needell, well known from his time on the BBC's "Top Gear" program. Apart from some test laps of Qld Raceway in late 2006, it was last raced at Bathurst 1993, and is currently being restored.

    Mike Quinns day ended for #61 after a shunt from John Bowes Volvo (1986-7)





    The TAFE apprentices were on hand as usual to assist with the repairs and worked tirelessly to mend the twisted Corolla back to it's former glory*.






    *not sure if it made it ever made a comeback or could this be the car that now sits in the motorsport museum at Bathurst?
    more pics after the jump*

    Also I can't take credit for most of these pics (I just rounded them up here) Most were scanned from various Bathurst yearbooks a few years ago by a guy named no_tofu_speed on Toymods.

    There is a wealth of European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) Corolla GT in this gallery: www.racingsportscars.coml

    Tom's at Spa 24 hr 1987
