DJR vs Brocky's Monaro

Brock and Johnson Meet the Challenge
Send article to a Friend

Legendary touring car champions Peter Brock and Dick Johnson will captain rival Holden and Ford teams in the 2004 Shannons Ford-Holden Challenge rally to Adelaides Clipsal 500 V8 Supercar street race from 14-18 March.
The five-day four night Rally, which includes more than 20 performance and driving skill events is open only to owners of Fords, Holdens and GM vehicles of all ages, competing in Current and Heritage categories.

The field of around 200 cars, panel vans and utes will travel from Melbourne via Shepparton, Mildura and the Barossa Valley, arriving just in time for the four-day Clipsal race programme.

Peter Brock wrote himself into the record books in mid-November when he won his10th Bathurst, co-driving the red 05 Holden Monaro 427 in the 24 hour endurance race.

He is the most decorated and versatile Holden driver in history, also winning the Sandown 500 race nine times, claiming three Australian Touring Car titles and winning the 1979 Repco around Australia trial outright.

Dick Johnson is an equally legendary Ford figure, as a five-time Australian Touring Car champion, a three time Bathurst winner and the winner of the Eastern Creek 12 Hour endurance race.

More good news is that Holden will opened the gates to its normally top-secret Lang Lang Proving Grounds to entrants in the Challenge, with the rallys opening events conducted at the facility on Sunday 14 March.

Brock and Johnson will drive unique Holden and Ford cars throughout the Challenge and will take part in all the events performance events, ranging from full-blooded drags, to circuit sprints, acceleration and braking tests and a drifting contest. A special Show & Shine and a Sound-Off competition will be other attractions to entrants of both makes.

All Ford and Holden entrants will fight for the Shannons Challenge Perpetual Trophy for the dominant make, with every competitors score counting towards Ford or Holden team result.

Once in Adelaide, entrants will enjoy privileged infield parking at the Clipsal 500, access to a special Challenge grandstand at the hairpin opposite the pits leading onto the main straight, while major category winners will enjoy parade laps of the former Grand Prix circuit.

That means Brocky's 427 is going to get shat on by a bogan (figure of speach minge) in a TS50.
