Bathurst 1946

This is the NSW Gran Prix at Bathurst in 1946: https://www.youtube....
It was the first race there since WW2.
Frank Kleinig was there in his red Hudson Special (The 100mph Car) and Gelignight Jack Murray raced his Mackellar Special ( Bugatti Type 37A with a supercharged Ford sidevalve V8)
They were both timed at 110MPH over the quarter mile on Conrod. No seatbelts, no safety barriers, people standing on the side of Conrod straight.
Glory days. And part of the reason why I reckon V8 Supercars are lame.
It's worth 5 minutes of your time.
