    Whoa, great video. Have been waiting to see this for years. Do you have the full length, and can it be done in better quality? I am fascinated with the one and ONLY semi group A XE Falcon –  so much potential but what a shame Ford Australia just didnt want to mess around with the idea for a fully spec vehicle. Have heard a lot about this car, so fast that no Group A Jaguar and BMW could even come close. Running road going street gearbox, diff and brakes, the yellow Falcon is badly handicapped and sure enough it didn't last long. What a shame this car was later stolen and lost forever. Such significant historic car.

    RIP

    Actually, the FIA delegate at the the 1985 Wellington 500, 1960 Armstrong 500 winner John Roxborough, voiced serious concerns about the track as it didn't pass regs according to him. The promoters got around it by re-wording it from being an International to a National race, thus eliminating the need for FIA approval.
