Finnish rally ace Rauno Aaltonen and local legend Bob Holden will both attend the 2016 Muscle Car Masters to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the pair’s win in the 1966 Bathurst 500 in the mighty Mini Cooper S. Aaltonen will be in Australia for the Southern Cross Rally Festival and will visit Sydney Motorsport Park on main race day to watch his old team Holden compete in the Heritage Touring Car events.
Meantime, a special all-Mini race will be held on main raceday. The 50th anniversary race will draw from the Group N Historic Touring Car ranks, meaning a busy weekend for ‘flying brick’ teams. Off the track, owners of Australian-built examples of the famous Cooper S are invited to display their cars in Pit Straight Car Club Corral.
