Win: Alan Jones’s Lola T332 F5000 diecast replica

Submitted by on June 14, 2012

The 1977 Rothmans Formula 5000 Series began with the running of the 42nd Australian Grand Prix at Oran Park. Pole position was set by Warwick Brown with a time of 65.7s, Alan Jones in a Lola T332 joined the front row with a time of 66s. The cars were set to race, with the starter flag lifted Jones took off just before the flag had dropped. Knowing his mistake he pressed hard, to limit the damage from a one minute stop-go penalty.

Jones was on the attack and charged from the back of the field, on his way setting the fastest lap. His pace was good but his climb through the field was halted when he ran out of laps, finishing fourth.
