1999 Bob Jane T-Marts 500 - Race


The race was very heavily weather affected with rain wreathing the circuit for much of the day, earlier blighting the Bob Jane T-Marts V8 300 race held for a combined field of AUSCARs and Future Touring Cars. The race spent many laps behind a safety car because of low visibility caused by fog, including the final 17 laps and was eventually declared after 50 laps, 11 short of the intended full race distance. Paul Morris avenged his disqualification from victory in the 1997 AMP Bathurst 1000 taking victory over the two-car factory supported Volvo team, Jim Richards driving solo as Cameron McLean was unable to take his scheduled middle stint because of the weather and because of tyre issues, and Craig Baird and Matthew Coleman. Fourth place and leading independent driver was young New Zealander Mark Porter who had so impressed team owner Mike Downard that he kept Porter in the car rather than take his own turn at the wheel. Leading independent team Knight Racing saw the Dean Canto / Leanne Ferrier buried in a sand trap while the lead car of Peter Hills / Ron Searle struggled with water leaks and electrical issues.

Famous quotes containing the word race:

    When at last in a race a new principle appears, an idea—that conserves it; ideas only save races.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Before we shall again behold
    In his diurnal race the world’s great eye,
    We may as silent be and cold
    As are the shades where buried lovers lie.
    Sir William Davenant (1606–1668)

    No race has the last word on culture and on civilization. You do not know what the black man is capable of; you do not know what he is thinking and therefore you do not know what the oppressed and suppressed Negro, by virtue of his condition and circumstance, may give to the world as a surprise.
    Marcus Garvey (1887–1940)
