My dad loves Holden and absolutely loved this DVD for Christmas
The link between a high performance car manufacturer in Holden Special Vehicles and its racing division has produced the most successful racing partnership in Australian motor sport history.
The Holden Racing Team won six championships in a decade of V8 only or V8 Supercar racing in Australia and was almost unbeatable in the late 1990s.
For five consecutive years, HRT won the Australian Touring Car Championship. Several great victories at Mt Panorama in the Bathurst 1000 put the icing on the cake for the team.
The list of the team's drivers read like an Australian motorsport who's who with the likes of Peter Brock, Mark Skaife, Jim Richards, Craig Lowndes, Greg Murphy, Larry Perkins, Win Percy, Allan Grice, Tomas Mezera, Neil Crompton, Wayne Gardner, Brad Jones and Jason Bright all driving for the team.
In this DVD, we examine the origins of the HRT in 1988 with Tom Walkinshaw Racing, meet the drivers who have brought the team so much success, recapture the great moments in the Championship and The Great Race, and talk to the people behind the team's success, as well as looking at the team today and its new directions under champion driver Mark Skaife.
The History of the Holden Racing Team is a must-have DVD for motor sport fans.
