40 years later a very similar car takes nominal line honours

You'd have to say this was a motley collection of vehicles - everything from close replicas to the original 1979 cars, through to the most unlikely vehicles.

Some of them might have looked totally unsuited to the task, and that was probably part of the fun.

A nice touch was the nominal 'win' was given to Barry Ferguson in a Commodore - he competed with the 1-2-3 team that won the original event back in 1979. The lead driver was Peter Brock.
