Despite testing the loyalty of his legion of fans, Peter Brock’s move to race a Ford Sierra RS500 in 1989 was a good one. This controversial change was necessitated by the simple fact that it was the only car capable of winning races at the time in Group A touring car racing.

Brock and the Sierra achieved four podium finishes in the 1989 ATCC, including victory in the season finale at Oran Park in Sydney, finishing third overall in the series. Brock used an all-new, Australian-built Mobil Sierra to take his record sixth pole position for the Bathurst 1000 classic and win the Nissan-Mobil Series in New Zealand. So expectations were high moving into the 1990 season after a year of development coming to terms with the demon Sierra. Round one of the championship was at Sydney’s Amaroo Park and was the first time the field saw the vast improvement in the Nissan Skyline driven by Jim Richards. Richards took the round followed by a string of eight Sierras with Brock in fifth.

Round two was at Symmons Plains in Tasmania and Brock put the Mobil 1 Sierra on pole. At the jump Brock gapped the field and appeared to have everyone covered. But at half race distance Dick Johnson moved into second and slowly started to pull Brock in. An epic battle ensued before the superior grip of Johnson’s better tyres gave him the advantage out of the hairpin allowing the Shell car to move into the lead and take the race from Brock. Round three at Phillip Island was a disaster for Brock, tangling with other cars heading into Southern Loop for the first time and sustaining significant damage to the rear of the car keeping him out of contention. The next round at Winton was only marginally better with trouble with the Sierra’s Bridgestone tyres all weekend resulting in only a ninth place finish. 

At the halfway point in the championship Brock had shown only glimpses of the performance the Sierra was capable of and needed a consistent run through to the end of the year to be a title contender – and that’s exactly what happened. After a tussle with Johnson at Lakeside, Brock came home an encouraging second to Colin Bond and followed it up with a fourth place at Mallala. That round saw Brock engage is an enthralling battle for the race lead with Mark Skaife aboard the brand new Nissan GT-R. Brock surrendered the race lead and the chance of a podium finish after the GTR’s exit, his rear tyre worn down to steel belts and he limped home. But things panned out much better at Wanneroo in Perth, where Brock and the Mobil Sierra took their one and only round win of the 1990 championship, leading the 45-minute race from start to finish despite turbo waste-gate problems. 

That win pitted Brock in a four-way fight for the championship in the finale at Oran Park with only he, Richards, Johnson and Bond able to become champion. But it quickly became a walk-in-the-park for Richards in the improving GT-R, who bolted from the start and disappeared to win the race and title. Brock slowly worked his way through both the Benson & Hedges and Shell Sierras to finish second in the race and second overall in the championship. 

When he took the chequered flag to finish that very race in 1990 it was the last time the exiled Holden hero would race in the Australian Touring Car Championship in any make other than a Holden. Following that year’s enduros Brock headed back to racing Holdens in 1991 in partnership with former co-driver Larry Perkins – and Commodore V8 fans across the country collectively breathed a sigh of relief!

Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, highly detailed engine bay, racing interior, boot, undercarriage and beautiful exterior finishing, this is a model that shouldn’t be missed. It will form part of the Biante Peter Brock Collection and will be produced in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
