Peter Brock Holden HR Premier, 1969 Winton Raceway
1:18 scale. In March 1969, Brock raced this HR Holden Premier in a race for production-type cars at Benallas Winton Raceway. Car dealership Watsons of Greensborough, from the Diamond Valley region where Brock lived, had the Premier in its possession but found difficulty moving it out the door. In a bid to generate publicity for the dealership (and to attract a buyer for the Premier), Watsons engaged Brock to race it. Previously run as a drag car, the HR scored some special Dunlop tyres, six-inch wheels and brake scoops and was prepared for Brock to have his first race in a car other than the Austin A30. Brock was to finish a very credible 3rd. This model will form part of the Peter Brock collection.
