Aussie racing icon celebrates major birthday

AUSTRALIAN motorsport icon Allan Moffat racks up a special milestone today (Monday November 10) – his 75th birthday.

The four-time Bathurst winner and four-time Australian Touring Car Champion has been a great supporter of V8 Sleuth in recent years and made himself available for many Sleuth-related projects, both in print and on TV.

Perhaps one of the highlights this year for Aussie racing fans has been the introduction of the Shannons Legends of Motorsport TV series on 7mate, which has featured two special Moffat episodes.

From a V8 Sleuth perspective, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the many hours of hard work that has gone into these programs but spending time with legends and icons of the sport like Allan has indeed been the highlight.

And Happy Birthday again to the legend himself, Allan Moffat.

V8 Sleuth strives to both preserve and celebrate Australian motorsport’s rich history, from tracking and tracing the race-by-race histories and changing ownership of individual cars, to capturing and retelling the stories of the people who made our sport what it is today.
