THE National Motor Racing Museum at Mount Panorama has a a new exhibit on loan, but is being a bit coy about what it is. The new car is a red Holden, with predominantly white signwriting, and in a gruelling endurance event, Peter Brock was one of the many drivers who piloted this vehicle. The museum has had the 2003 Bathurst 24 Hour winning Monaro 427 on show for quite a while, and says this new car is definitely not the first one that comes to mind.
