Garry Rogers

A brief run down of Garry Rogers time in AUSCAR.

Garry Rogers is now known to race fans as the owner of Garry Rogers Motorsport who carried the hopes of Volvo in the Supercars before switching back to Holden but before going to V8’s long ago,  Garry tried his hand at AUSCAR racing.

Garry’s AUSCAR’s were beautifully presented in Valvoline sponsorship and his cars were frequently seen up the pointy end of the field with Garry winning the Round 6 race of the 1993/94 season at Surfers Paradise.

Garry raced both Holden’s and Fords in the AUSCAR series

In 2015, GRM’s #36 made an appearance at Queensland Raceway alongside other Garry Rogers cars and still looked as good as ever.

#68 – Holden
#36 – EB Falcon

Darryl Speers

A look at the career of Darryl Speers.

(still under construction)

Darryl Speers started racing AUSCAR’s from the second round of the 1988/89 season and continued on racing until the category came to a sudden halt in 2000.

The July 1988 edition of Thunderdome mentions Darryl racing against the clock to make his debut in the June 26th, the story mentions that he was a young mechanic who acquired a body shell from Reg Hunt in February 1988 with Dave Weatherhead putting the engine together.

Darryl raced very competitively in AUSCAR and can proudly state that he is an AUSCAR race winner.

His race cars still exist in 2017 as his #31 was seen at Wakefield Park for many years where people could pay to drive or be driven in it before it was spotted among a bunch of AUSCAR’s at Winton.

Terri Sawyer

A brief look at the racing history of Terri Sawyer

Terri Sawyer was the first winner of a AUSCAR race after winning the first ever AUSCAR race in February 1988.

Race highlights shown Terri coming to the start/finish line in the lead as Greg East spun his #99 Commodore through the tri-oval after he got loose behind Max De Jersey .

The camera stayed on East’s car for several seconds before a commentator announced that Kim Jane taken the lead with viewers now seeing Kim Jane’s #7 in front of Sawyer’s #9.

Confusion reigned Terri made her way back ahead of Kim Jane as Mal Rose shot ahead of them both before Neil Crompton announced that the checkered flag is out and Terri Sawyer won the race.

Terri’s win ensured that she achieved the first win by a woman in the sport and the first win in the categories history.

Her win was followed up by several strong performances that eventually taken her to the United States to try her luck there.

Terri attempted two races in the NASCAR Sportsman Series, Her first attempt was the Sportsman 100 which ended in a practice crash hitting the outside wall of Turn 4.

Terri’s second attempt was the Wiscassett 150 where she qualified 13th but was in an accident on Lap 3 resulting in a 38th place finish.

Soon Terri was back in Australia and went into NASCAR driving the #1 where she soon collected her first NASCAR win at Calder Park Thunderdome by winning the Moomba 100, becoming the first woman to win in that category too.

Terry Wyhoon

A look at Terry Wyhoon’s career.

(Still Under Construction)

Terry Wyhoon raced in both AUSCAR and NASCAR with great success with the pinnacle of his success being his 1995/96 AUSCAR title win.
