The 1997 Primus Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercar race was a classic, particularly given the emotion surrounding the first of Peter Brock's numerous retirements and the record crowd cramming onto Mount Panorama to farewell him. But through it all, Larry Perkins and his team-mate Russell Ingall in their Holden VS Commodore, had out-raced all opposition to clinch the Castrol Team's third Bathurst 1000 win,
in its last five starts.

Larry Perkins crossed the line in 6 hours, 21 minutes and 55 seconds, to take his sixth victory on the Mountain. The 1997 Race would be Russell Ingall's second victory at Mount Panorama and second with Perkins. The first in 1995 in a Holden VR Commodore.

Steven and Jim Richards were a deserved second place, 1 1 seconds behind Perkins and Ingall. Third place on the podium was Mark Larkham and Andrew Miedecke. In front of one of the largest crowds ever at Mount Panorama and the largest field of V8s to run at the Mountain (43 cars), Perkins and Ingall had captured the Primus 1000 Classic as their rivals fell by the wayside. They had repeated their 1995 winning partnership and cemented the Castrol Holden Commodore's place in the history books.

Classic Carlectables are proud to present a special Silver Livery Edition of the Holden VS Commodore to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of its 1997 Bathurst victory.
