Description

https://www.youtube.com/SUPER100MPH This was an interesting race as Mallala was included in the ATCC as round 5 after a break of 18 years for touring cars (Bob Jane was the last winner back then.) Not all the drivers were happy about the Mallala track as a venue, you will find out who in this video. Some great racecam footage from the Jim Richards HR 31 Nissan GTR, a must see. Mallala produced some great racing and is an interesting track in our view, enjoy!

Fury was joined in the Nissan team by 1985 and 1987 champion Jim Richards, and the teams 1987 recruit Mark Skaife, each driving a turbocharged Skyline HR31 GTS-R. Skaife made his first appearance of the series at the Mallala circuit in South Australia for Round 5, and avoided the first corner carnage (caused by an out of control Brock) to finish a fine fifth.
