WE’RE focusing on the restoration of a significant Peter Brock car for this week’s Classic Car episode of the V8 Sleuth Podcast powered by Timken.

HRT 034, aka ‘Steffi’, was the car that Brock raced in the 1997 Primus 1000 Classic, the race that was – at the time – going to be his last tilt at the ‘Great Race’ and his last opportunity to bring his tally of wins in the race to a perfect 10.

Aaron Noonan and Will Dale are joined by the car’s current owner, Super2 Series team owner Ben Eggleston, to chat about the car’s history with Brock and the Holden Racing Team, the sudden end of its competition career, plus the car’s restoration by Eggleston Motor Sport which is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.
