  1. Project Cars (Game)

    Looking forward to seeing the finished product, hopefully it'll be more sim than arcade racer.

    Nice, look forward to seeing the info. Ben, can you shed any light on the car in Peter Champions collection?
  3. brock rs500

    Seems that Mike Steele's car is certainly the Dencar built car raced by Brock from late '89 onwards and that the car owned by the Matthias boys is the ex 88 Kaliber/ early 89 Brock car. The second car previously owned by Mike and now Miedecke is possibly a new Dencar built car that perhaps never actually raced? The Champions Experience mueseum car could be the rebuilt or even reshelled second Rouse car that Sheene wrote off? Gotta love the clouded history of some of these cars

    In the article it says the car recently purchased by Miedecke was the second Dencar built car not the second Rouse car. Is that what you're referring to Paul? I always thought the second Rouse car was part of the Champions Brock Experience: http://www.championsbrockexperience.com.au/race/89_ford_Sierra.htm Heard the collection was up for sale a while ago but never heard any more? I'm so confused :-\
  5. group A

    Looks like a good example. Makes some healthy numbers to
  6. Yeah, live 10 minutes down the road from DJR. Still a Team Mate (fan club) member, and quite often drop in to check for any Sierra merchandise and look through their mueseum.
  7. The only way to really enjoy them
  8. Back out on the road

    Looks very nice. Out of curiousity, what size are the rims and tyres?
  9. Hi Guys, This car was apparently sold new to a customer in Japan, where it spent the first 23 years of it's life as a very sheltered weekend toy. In this time it had only clocked up about 24,000 miles. In 2009 it was imported to Australia by a Group A enthusiast who at the time owned an ex Colin Bond RS500 and Group A mustang amongst other toys. He never really used it, and only clocked up another 1500 miles in the two years he owned it. So in 2011 I purchased the car with about 26,000 miles on the clock and have enjoyed it ever since. The car is in great condition but I'm there are a couple of niggling things that I will fix up over time. It's pretty much as it rolled off the factory floor with the exception of an exhaust, chipped ecu and some OZ Racing wheels. I still have a nice set of standard wheels and the original exhaust. Anyway, for now it's get out an use it when and where I can. Last weekend I took the car out to Lakeside Raceway to have a run in a general practice session. The track is now Heritage listed, and as such, it hasn't changed a lot since they use to race the Group A cars here back in the day. Unfortuanately the OZ rims still have some pretty average road tyres fitted to them, but I'll be replacing them with some decent rubber soon enough. Here's a couple of laps from the day. This is about as hard as I dare go on the tyres fitted
  10. Loads of aussie photos of 500s

    Robb Gravett was eneterd in DJR#3 (No 28) for the Bathurst 1000 in 1988. The car qualified 2nd but only completed 26 laps before retiring. Not sure Robb actually drove it during the race.
  11. tail gate gas struts

    Let us know how you go Mark, as I would like to get a new set as well and haven't found anything as yet.
  12. DJR #4 back on track

    Mark, I'm not 100% on DJR#5 but last time I saw it, it was in reasonable nick. Probably not a "resto" as such but more a mechanical overhaul and tidy up. I do have some photos of the Bowdens collection, I'll just need to go back through my photo collection to find them.
  13. DJR #4 back on track

    Well if it's not me, then I hope it's DJ himself
  14. DJR #4 back on track

    Unfortunately not mine. Both DJR#4 & 5 are owned by the Bowden family here in Queensland, who have the best collection of race cars in Australia.
  15. DJR #4 back on track

    Here's a short clip of a recent outing for DJR#4 at the historic Lakeside Raceway in Australia.
