Throwback Thursday - Bathurst, 1969


Defending race winners Bruce McPhee and his single-lap co-driver Barry Mulholland driving a Phase 1 Ford Falcon GTHO finished in 2nd place.

1969's race was memorable from the very first lap when a crash resulted in nearly one-third of the field either retiring from the event, or completing the race in damaged vehicles. 

The race was won by the newly formed Holden Dealer Team with Colin Bond and Tony Roberts, with teammates Peter Brock and Des West finishing third in their Holden Monaro GTS350.
