A motorcycle trike with two persons was ahead on pit straight at Mount Panorama racing circuit in the country town of Bathurst.
The 6km track climbs up a mountain and back down again and is used for a calendar of full on racing events. Visitors can drive around there at other times at a sedate speed of 60kms.

Beyond what is probably Brock skyline is a sharply descending right hand corner where a descent begins. We must have been leading the pack - not.

A series of bends leads down to Conrod straight and top speed.

All sorts of cars would be found there before the races became more professional and the cars began to look and perform as if all much the same. The rivalry between Ford and Holden is perennial.
