Quick Dick’s red rockets

The latest Australian Muscle Car magazine celebrates the 25th anniversary of Dick Johnson’s 1989 Bathurst 1000 win by asking Tricky Dicky how he built the world’s fastest Sierra Cosworths. The new edition, on sale from October 30, documents the development of Dick’s red rockets from hand grenades to intercontinental missiles. His Queensland team used some local nous, lateral ingenuity and a willingness not to take a back seat to anyone to kick some Pommie arse, as we outline in our in-depth 18-page feature story. Traditional thinking would label an ‘Australian muscle car’ as a V8-powered Falcon, Monaro, Charger, Commodore or the like. But while its bodyshell may have originated in Europe, the red Shell Sierras very much deserve respect for their credentials as homegrown high performance racing machines.
