1974 Hardie-Ferodo 1000

The 1974 Hardie-Ferodo 1000 was the 16th running of the Bathurst 1000 touring car race. It was held on 6 October 1974 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst. The race was open to cars eligible to the locally developed CAMS Group C touring car regulations with four engine capacity based classes. It was Round 3 of the 1974 Australian Manufacturers' Championship.

The wettest race in the event's history to that point saw John Goss and Kevin Bartlett take victory in their Ford Falcon GT under pressure in the late stages from the Holden Torana of Bob Forbes and Wayne Negus. In what become the slowest of all the 1000 kilometre races New Zealand drivers Jim Richards and Rod Coppins finished third, five laps down in another Holden Torana.
