The chance of that is quite likely.

On a recent Q&A, Noonz revealed that the Sandown edition of the Classic Australian Motorsport series will have the 1988 Enzed 500. Would SBS have the Procar ones in their vault?


A year on. Any new news?



I haven't seen any news on them releasing another box set of Magic Moments, but I'm sure they will.

Watched a fair whack of the 1985 race today. The main thing I get out of these is the ad break footage, have seen these races so many times.

There is some great footage for DJ fans. Whilst it was an ordinary race for him, thereís heaps of extra race cam footage. And from the Walkinshaw/Percy Jag. Some quality stuff from both cars.

You see DJ develop the oil cooler problem, plus him nearly drill the Keogh/Rogers BMW when it nearly drilled the Harvey/Parsons Commodore in the dipper as it was being towed back.

Also, a potential disaster was narrowly avoided. When the marshals were pushing out the Fury BMW, Terry Finnigan nearly joined them in the sand trap and came oh so close to plowing through them.

A great DVD, has all the pre race festivities unlike a couple of the other ones.

As stated previously, some great driving on display. One of PBís better drives too for the Holden fans out there.

Thought they may have to go to a 3rd disc for Gossyís victory speech though.

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

Murph Fan will be happy with this news. There will be a Series 3 box set of Magic Moments which will have Bathurst 97/98, Calder Classics (with the 1988 Goodyear 500 on the Thunderdome), Awesome Amaroo, Three of Lowndes Best, V8 Classics Volume 3, and Group A Classics Volume 3 which has a race from his homeland.


EDIT: There will be a Bathurst box set released soon called "Choose the Eighties". It will have 1980 through to 1989. It also means that the two individual Bathurst releases next year are 1988 and 1989.

Only noticed this now...thanks for the update CP. I see its already at JB so i'll stop in next chance I get

I got Seies 3. Is Andy Raymond related to Mike by any chance? He seemed a good commentator, but did not last that long?

The saving is not so great though, think itís $200 for the box or $270 if you add them up individually.

Has anyone got the Bathurst Shootouts 78-96?

Its perfect for those that haven't got the three separate Shootout releases.


EDIT: For those that don't want the 1980s Bathurst box set as they have most of the races already, and if you don't want to wait around until next year for the eventual 1988 and 1989 releases, Chevron have limited stock of those on sale direct from their website.

Bought them all.

Andy moved to Fox Sports after Ch7 lost the V8 rights and has concentrated on mainly NRL commentary and presenting since then, also did/does some boxing as well.

Outside of some World Superbike presenting in the mid-2000s, the last motor race I recall Andy commentating was the opening Super Touring round of 1997.

It used to be the "Raymond Show" at Parramatta Speedway for a while there with Mike, brother Steve and son Andy all calling the action at the track.

I am a Bathurst nerd I know. Watched these races so much growing up that I thought I knew them all.

But the ad break footage produces the odd gem. Like in Bathurst 1988, you see Brock hit the tyre on Conrod in the M3. On board and he was looking down at his radio.

Watched some clips of him and Moffat on racecam in 1986. Love watching the contrasting styles.

'Tis Christmas time, so that means another batch of Seven DVDs (minus the Shootout one).

The first one I watched today was Three of Jims Best. While the 1985 and 1990 Amaroo races weren't too bad, but the pick of the bunch was the 1987 race from Surfers Paradise. The Shell Sierras fell victim to their, as DJ put it "Vietnamese made turbos" and the better Sierra was still red, albeit powered by beef stock from Port Macquarie. There was a great battle in the middle of the race with Larry, Tony Longhurst and George Fury, going toe to toe in three completely different cars. That was great to watch.

Review part 2:

Wonderful Winton is truly wonderful. Three great rounds, which were 1988, 1992 and 1993. All with varying driving standards.

The 1988 race is the full telecast, which includes Formula Ford, Production Cars and Sports Sedans. There is some brilliant machinery in the Sports Sedan race, and one caught fire on the second last lap. The production car race was brilliant to watch too, with RX7s versus turbo VLs, and the main race itself was pretty decent to watch. LP and Dick clashed, who both had differing views on the incident and JB did well in the surviving Shell Sierra. I remember reading about the fatal spectator accident in this race in the 50 Years of ATCC book, and while it doesn't show how it happened in the race, it does show Tony Hunter's car missing a wheel with the ambo's tending to the crowd.

1992. Another almost full telecast, with Formula Holden and Formula Ford. There were some familiar names in the Formula Holden field, with a current pit reporter and current commentator (who can be a little bit nauseating to listen to at times) finished 1-2 in a good race. The Formula Ford race was brilliant. There was a roll over at turn one, lap one, and an awesome race long battle between Stephen White (Former Holden Young Lion and V8 Ute racer) and Adrian Mastronado (who did Carrera Cup and maybe Oz GT a few years ago). As for the two races, well it was 1992 (which was when I was born), and the supposedly hobbled Skylines were still doing Skyline things. Race two was excellent though, with the bearded Taswegian getting harassed by Tony Longhurst and Alan Jones, with Tony finally getting sick of trying to find a way around JB and tapping him out of the way on the straight from current turn four to the sweeper.

Now, on to 1993. They just went ****ing berserk. Carnage in the dash. Carnage in race 1. Slightly less carnage in race 2. There was pretty much a fatal four way in race one, with JB losing patience with Skaifey and turfing him around, which led to Alan Jones taking evasive action and taking out Tomas Mezera. Later on, Crompo got a bit frustrated with Larry, gave him the finger and in turn, got tapped out of the way by LP. It also shown that on the right track, the BMW M3 could do naughty things and hassle those big V8 boys, with Tony Longhurst taking second for the round.
