Australian Endurance Championship

1985 index

Five long-distance races this year, and it was thought that Jim Ruichards would have a lot more opposition than the 1986 ATCC series; the main opponents Holden, Ford, Mitsubishi and Volvo all received newly homologated parts or a lower weight after August 1, whereas BMW did not have anything similar to offer for the 635. Nevertheless, the Richards dominance contiuned just as well, helped by slick planning, reliability and pitwork of Frank Gardner's JPS team.
