Reply Really love the sound in and out of Dick Johnson’s Ford Reply I have the 2000 version of this Ford Falcon in Grand Turismo 6. I love to drive it at Mt. Panorama. They just didn't get the engine sound right which is unfortunate. Anyway great car and fantastic track. Hope to drive it someday. Reply Suck Dick, I men't to say Dick sucks Reply A young Leigh Diffey on the call as he now is in the states as the current lead man for Formula 1 and IndyCar with NBCSN Reply Gawd!!!!…….Leigh Diffey screaming at the start needed volume adjustment. (You don't have to sell the start of the Bathurst 1000 that way. Little men with high pitched voices are such a turn off when they start screaming. I hope Greg Rust reads this…..Lol.😅) It was so good to see the late Barry Sheene.💔 #7 Reply Im a Holden man,but Dick is ok in my book,top unit. Reply Bathurst 1999, i was there, it was AWESOME a MUST DO for any petrol head!On the day you could hear which car was quickest car 18 DJR was really honking!! Damn shame it blew a tire near the end in the lead, man i was GUTTED!!!! Dick Johnson is a TRUE legend of the sport!Good to see DJR/Penneske getting good results again! Instead of POXY RED BULL FUCK THEM!!!! Reply Legend 👏👏 Reply Bring back 55 cars! Reply OH MY WORD 55 CARS! Reply Shows up all that has gone wrong with the V8 stupor cars since those days. They can barely manage a field at half the events now. Reply Back in the days of 55 cars… Reply Barry sheene was a favorite in our house great commentator funny guy beast on a bike.RIP Barry Reply gotta say it was a nice surprise to see and hear Barry Sheene once again, he was a great bloke Reply DJR cars have always sounded the best! Reply Amazing….full 55 car field. Aussies do it best. just imagine pit straight. 2 days till 2013bathurst Reply for that to work they would have to make Bathurst a stand alone race again, it couldn be apart of the championship. Then they could open it up a bit more, make it more interesting thats for sure. Reply Dick Johnson retired from full-time racing competition in 1999 and only made one return to V8 Supercars, replacing endurance driver Jason Bright who was unavailable for the Queensland 500 in 2000. Reply We miss you, Barry!! Reply COTF is supposed to be much, much cheaper… Open it up to privateers again? Reply has Skaife ever made a good start at Bathurst?? lol Reply Quick stats on this race. -Only 22 cars finished the race -33 didn't finish -The race winner started 12th on the grid -David Parsons in the Gibson Motor Sport commodore started last on the grid and finished 11th Reply Congrats to all concerned with the "When" series. Superb. 24 hrs ago this vid was on 2 views – now already at 2700. All this and Barry Sheene too! Reply I agree with a lot of the comments here – look at that 55 car field !! We understand Bathurst is part of a championship series but I actually think that letting the Dunlop cars in has some merit. It's not like Dick, Brocky and Richards did flyby around the outside little Corollas back in the glory days !!! Reply i can imagine that you must feel slow if you qualified last in this race Reply Bring back the 55 car field PLEASE!!!! That would make for exciting racing.
