History of the VL Bathurst Winning Peter Brock HDT Mobil Race Car
As one of the last race cars ever built by HDT and Peter Brock, this 1897 Holden VL Group A car was special. This vehicle had a DB Polarizer, a device described by Peter Brock that “altered the behaviour and characteristics of material and components in the vehicle”. This device was so revolutionary that Holden never fully understood it.
When Brock took the #05 and #10 cars to Bathurst in 1987, he had no Holden backing. Ironically Brock went on to win his final Bathurst 1000 title in #10 with David Parsons and Peter McLeod after the two leading Sierras were disqualified for bodywork irregularities.
