Holden’s last hurrah as a factory team was fittingly capped off with a win in the 2020 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, and this book is the story of how that unfolded in the weirdest year of motor racing yet experience. The energy of the 50,000 plus crowd was absent as only 4000 people were allowed on the mound lining pit straight, but when the lights went green it was still the biggest motor race in this country.
Cameron Waters dominated the pre-race lead-up with plenty of speed, and while he and Will Davison carried that speed into the race, a brilliant wet driving spell by Shane Van Gisbergen set up a final win for a Holden factory team with Garth Tander as his co-driver.
As ever, there were dramas and crashes, Safety Cars and brilliance, and many of those stories are in the pages of this book as the Legend of Australia’s Iconic Motor Race grew with its 60th instalment. This is Bathurst 2020.
