MOTOR RACING • TORANA SL/R 5000 Price: A$35 DVD Rating: G Duration: 90 mins Holden’s SLR 5000, known as L34 in its Bathurst-winning race spec, was the V8 successor to the nimble Torana XU-1, and debuted by Peter Brock as he won the fi nal two races of his fi rst touring car championship title in 1974. But it was Colin Bond who was the star of Harry Firth’s Holden Dealer Team in the fi ve-race manufacturer’s championship. HDT pipped the Falcon contingent of Moffat, Goss and Carter with a fi nal victory at Phillip Island. This classic cinema fi lm represents Aussie motor racing – seventies style. Hosted by Peter Brock and John Harvey. • TORANA XU-1 WHEN YOU’RE HOT, YOU’RE HOT Price: A$35 DVD Rating: G Duration: 70 mins Holden made a surprising move of dumping the V8s and unleashing a smaller, more nimble, but amazingly potent six-cylinder car. The Torana XU-1 went on to become one of Australia’s legendary muscle cars. It provided Peter Brock with his fi rst win against the might of the Phase 3 GTHO and it dominated early ‘70s Australian rallies. Re-live the glory days of the XU-1, hosted by Peter Brock and Colin Bond. • TORANA A9X Price: A$35 DVD Rating: G Duration: 100 mins This is the last program of the fantastic Torana competition trilogy, and what a fi tting ending. In the late seventies, Holden’s fabulous Torana A9X Hatchback won two Australian Touring Car Championships in the hands of Brock (1978) and Bob Morris (1979), while Brock and Jim Richards ‘owned’ Bathurst in no uncertain terms both years. The A9X scored four of the top 10 placings at Bathurst in 1977, six of the top 10 in 1978, and eight of the 10 in 1979. Peter Brock hosts rare cinema footage from Bathurst featuring Holden men of the era Harvey, Morris, Grice, Janson, O’Brien and Harrop versus Ford’s Moffat, Bond, Carter, Goss and Johnson. • TORANA TRILOGY Price: A$70 DVD Rating: G Save A$35* These three DVDs feature classic cinema fi lms representing Aussie motor racing - seventies style.In a much different scenario to today’s high-tech Supercars, we revisit the days of long hair, fl ared jeans and leisurely pit stops.
