The 1972 Hardie-Ferodo 500 motor race at Bathurst was seen as the start of the Allan Moffat-Peter Brock rivalry and Classic Lines Artist Mike Harbar has captured the pair sparring on Mount Panorama's famous Con Rod Straight.
Moffat and his long-time friend and rival (and later co-driver) Brock are the only drivers to have won The Great Race at Bathurst in both its 500-mile and 1000-kilometre formats.
The 1972 edition was the first year that rain had significantly affected the race and it was won by Peter Brock driving a Holden Dealer Team prepared Holden Torana, the first of Brock's record nine victories. Brock finished a lap ahead of Queensland racer John French driving a Ford XY Falcon GTHO Phase III. Pole sitter and winner of the previous two Bathurst 500's, Allan Moffat, had a race he would rather forget. After dicing for the lead with Brock in the early laps, Moffat spun his Works Phase III Falcon on top of The Mountain in the wet conditions. He finished the race in 9th place, 8 laps down on Brock.
English born and bred and now living on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula in Australia, Mike Harbar has a passion and natural talent for illustrating cars, boats and planes. Trained as an industrial designer, Mike understands the basic engineering principals to the artistic flowing lines. This is very apparent when you see the accuracy and the attention to detail he can achieve just by using his lead pencils and watercolour.
We are privileged to offer a large selection of Mike's works under license from the artist.
