Bathurst, Brock and an Audi – Video

Submitted by on October 1, 2014

Bathurst Brad Jones Brock Remember the time Brock hot-lapped around Bathurst with Brad Jones and an Audi A4 Quattro Super Tourer?

AUSTRALIAN motorsport legend Peter Brock is famous for claiming a record nine wins in the Bathurst 1000 touring car classic.

His nine wins all came in Holden products but many fans will recall that he raced at Bathurst in the 1000-kilometre classic in a BMW M3, Ford Sierra RS500 and even a two-litre Vauxhall Vectra Super Tourer.

But what about the time Brock hot-lapped an Audi A4 Quattro Super Tourer around Mount Panorama?

OK, so the ‘King of the Mountain’ didn’t actually drive the car, but he bolted in as a passenger with multiple Australian Super Touring Champion – and former teammate – Brad Jones for a ride recorded for the Channel Seven TV coverage of the 1998 AMP Bathurst 1000.

The end result was quite entertaining!

As an aside, with the rise of Historic Super Touring racing in England, many readers will be interested to know an ex-Jones Audi A4 Quattro remains on display at the National Motor Racing Museum at Bathurst.
