Moffatt Ford Sierra

Going through some of the pictures I took at the Australian Grand Prix. Here’s a picture of a Moffatt Sierra in ANZ livery from the late 80s.

Remember when Peter Brock raced a BMW M3 at Bathurst

This BMW M3 as driven by Peter Brock was recently at the Shannons Touring Historic Touring Car race at the Australian GP at Albert Park. I forgot that Brock briefly drove a Bimmer after he quit from Holden and before he drove a Ford Sierra.

The 12 months that Brock spent with BMW weren’t all that succesful. By that time Ford had gotten the ultra fast Sierras to be reliable and they blitzed everything. It wasn’t long before Brock himself dove a blue oval hot rocket but by that time Nissan had brought out the GTR.

NSFW

On Thursday I was in Richmond where I spotted a new Alfa Romeo Giulietta. Alfa has always made beautiful (if unreliable) cars, and the new Giulietta is no exception.

Yep, this is the equivalent of porn for a car nut.

I’ve also decided that by this time next year I will have bought myself either a little second-hand Alfa 156 or Alfa 147 (not sure which one I like best!).
