Notable privateer V8 Commodore to return to the track

SOMETIME ago V8 Sleuth fans will recall a story on the restoration of Bob Jones’ Ampol Max 3 Commodore VP in Tasmania.

We’re pleased to say that things are progressing well with this car confirmed to appear with the Australian 5 Litre Touring Car Association at its demo event at the Winton Historics in August with its owner Gary Cannan.

The car is set to have its first full public appearance this weekend at Baskerville in Tasmania – keep an eye on Saturday Sleuthing on the V8 Supercars website next weekend for a full story on the car’s life.

You can see in these images the work that has gone into getting this car back to this stage ready to hit the track again – it’s been a big effort but looks fantastic!

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.
