Video: Dick Johnson interviewed whilst racing Bathurst 1982

Submitted by on January 22, 2014

1982 DickOnboard footage from Bathurst 1982 takes us into the cabin of Dick Johnson for a novel on-track interview.

Watch as Mike Raymond and Chris Economaki chat to Australian racing legend Dick Johnson whilst he races around Bathurst in 1982. It’s a very cool piece of footage, made all the better for the tenses pauses in conversation whilst Johnson focuses on something important – like overtaking a competitor or jamming hard on the brakes. It seems strange today to watch a driver interviewed whilst he’s racing – but it sure is entertaining. Why don’t we see more of this today?
