The 1973 Bathurst race would best the 17 Toranas fencing the starter. The new distance of 1000km (630 miles not 500 miles) placed extra stress on cars, and regulations now put cars like Torana in the same class as Falcon and Chargers. Most of the private team Toranas couldn't keep up with the Falcon's pace and mechanical failure thinned the field by mid-race. But the Holden Dealer Team Toranas used a taller 2.78 to 1 final drive. They could challenge the Falcon of Allan Moffat an did so agressively. But a pit stop drama meant Peter Brock, sharing with Doug Chivas, placed 2nd. Colin Bond with Leo Geoghehan as his co-driver drove a faultless race crossing the line in 3rd place. Full creit to HDT!
