Comic Book – Winton

THE COMIC BOOK SPECIAL AT WINTON MOTOR RACEWAY

In 2009 the BMH made the journey to Historic Winton some 3000kms from it home in Perth Western Australia. This was the 33rd Annual Winton featuring the “Australian Specials”. The BMH is the epitome of the Australian Special being constructed largely form the remains of a Holden 48-215 or FX. The car performed very well and wonderful competition between all of the competitors took place. The car was accompanied to Winton by five other Western Australian cars including other Australian Specials in the TS Special and the Mercury 100 Ford V8 special. The car which is far from ideally suited to the tight twisting circuit managed a 1.18 second lap time
