The story of Bob Jane, his mighty Monaro GTS 350, and six consecutive seasons of Sports Sedan racing domination.

Designed as a state-of-the-art racer for Improved Production racing, Bob Jane’s HQ Monaro GTS 350 hit the track for the first time at the 1972 ATCC final at Oran Park with John Harvey at the wheel. Allan Moffat won the race, but Bob Jane had done enough to secure his fourth Australian Touring Car Championship title, and Harvey in the Monaro had left a lasting impression.

From that first outing the car went from strength to strength, sticking to its muscle car roots and fighting intense competition from increasingly well-developed and sophisticated mid-engined rivals. Enjoy its adventures over at the Shannons Club in Holden HQ Monaro: Bob Jane’s magnificent GTS 350.
