Dutton calls this Holden VX Commodore V8 Supercar “the car in which Peter Brock drove his last Bathurst 1000,” which is only partially true.

While the Autoart VX Commodore was the last car in which Brock finished a Bathurst 1000 effort, it wasn’t the last which he entered.

In 2002, Brock ran the full ‘1000’ finishing 23rd with Craig Baird as co-driver. That’s not a bad effort for a bloke in his 50s – keep in mind Brock also hadn’t raced consistently at Bathurst for some time by 2002.

Skipping 2003, Brock returned to The Mountain in 2004 in a HRT VY Commodore Supercar, with British touring car driver and Fifth Gear presenter Jason Plato as co-driver.

Brock drove the car in practice and qualifying, but Plato (himself a two-time British Touring Car Champion) took the first stint at the wheel and crashed 31 laps in, effectively preventing Brock from having a crack on his last outing to the Bathurst 1000.

So, while it is the last car Brock completed a Bathurst 1000 in, this VX Commodore Supercar is not the last car Peter Brock took to The Mountain for the Great Race.

Dutton says Chassis RNR002 has been used only four times since it crossed the line in 2002, and that it’s been part of a display since.

It comes with a CAMS logbook, which itself could be quite a valuable piece of memorabilia, but Dutton has listed the V8 Supercar with a ‘price on application’, so we can’t say where the car’s asking price sits.

It seems a good chance to pick up some ‘Brock history’ which has been relatively overlooked, likely due to not wearing the famous red and white HRT/HDT colours. It’s still wearing Brock’s ‘05’ though…
