10 of the best from Autopics: Bathurst 1000 1984
It was a very happy day for HDT fans as John Harvey and David Parsons backed up their team leaders and finished in second place. Third was taken by the Mazda RX-7 of Allan Moffat and Gregg Hansford.
This race was also remembered for the huge pile up at the start and for being the “The last for the Big Bangers”, in reference to the Group C touring cars, which were competing at Bathurst for the last time.
