In Australian MUSCLE CAR Issue #125 we looked back on the race meeting dubbed by many as this country’s ‘mightiest race meeting’ - the winner-take-all showdown between Bob Jane and Allan Moffat at Oran Park on August 8, 1971.

It was such an occasion that the roads surrounding Oran Park were blocked for miles around as punters tried to get trackside to witness history as Chevrolet Camaro took on Ford Mustang for Australian touring car racing glory.

The Chevrolet Camaro is returning to top-line touring car racing in Australia after 50 years.

Supercars Australia organisers will be hoping for similar historical significance when the 2023 series begins at the Newcastle street circuit - with the all-new Gen3 regulations coming into effect.
