Fifty years ago the mighty Mini Cooper S conquered Mount Panorama and the famous Bathurst 500.1n that 1966 running of the Great Race the flying little 'Bricks utterly trounced the bigger, more powerful V8s, filling the first nine outright places! To celebrate the half-century anniversary of this extraordinary success story, we salute the marque with a special 18-minute highlights package of that victory. In addition, we have unearthed a very special documentary on the famous 1960s
Neptune Racing Team which includes fantastic footage of Peter Manton in his giant-killing 997cc Mini Cooper. The promo film features some brilliant footage of other Minis, plus Manton's Neptune teammates (Norm Beechey driving a EH Holden/Ford Galaxie and Jim McKeown in a Ford Cortina). We then look at some classic Australian touring car action from the vaults of ABC Television, from Warwick Farm in NSW. To complete this celebration we take in some current-day historic Mini racing from the Australian Muscle Car Masters event at Sydney Motorsport Park.
