Description

The distinctive orange Holden LX Torana SS A9X first appeared in the hands of the late Bob Jane in the 1977 Australian Touring Car Championship sporting a striking livery with backing from 2UW, Kleber and the four-time Bathurst winner’s tyre company, Bob Jane T-Marts. It then made its first Bathurst 1000 appearance with Bob Jane and Ian Geoghegan behind the wheel in the 1977 edition of The Great Race. The pair qualified fifth with a lap time of 2:25.9 in their only Bathurst start together, though the wheels quite literally fell off their campaign when the car lost a wheel only 35 laps into the race. This unique beast only lasted two racing seasons after it was involved in a mammoth shunt at Amaroo Park during an AMSCAR Series event with Garry Rogers at the wheel in 1979. He lost control of the Torana at the infamous Stop Corner, slamming into the concrete wall side-on leaving the A9X damaged beyond repair.
