1969 Hardie-Ferodo 500
Previous: 1968 Next: 1970

The 1969 Hardie-Ferodo 500 was the tenth running of the Bathurst 500 production car race. It was held on 5 October 1969 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst. Cars competed in five classes based on purchase price (Australian dollars) of the vehicle.

The race was won by the newly formed Holden Dealer Team with Colin Bond and Tony Roberts with team mates Peter Brock and Des West finishing third in their Holden Monaro GTS350's, with the team's third car finishing sixth. In between them in second position was Bruce McPhee and his single-lap co-driver Barry Mulholland driving a Phase 1 Ford Falcon GTHO.

Peter Brock and Canadian Allan Moffat made their Bathurst débuts in the race. Brock with Harry Firth's Holden Dealer Team, and Moffat driving a works Falcon GTHO with Alan Hamilton. Between them, Brock and Moffat would go on to win 13 of the next 17 Bathurst 500/100's, with Brock winning a record nine times (all for Holden), and Moffat winning four times for Ford.

The Ford Works Team were the favourites to win the race with their new GTHO Falcons which proved to have a speed advantage over the 350 Monaro's. However, the decision by Ford and their American team manager Al Turner to import special racing tyres for the works Falcons proved to be a disaster. During the race numerous tyre failures put the Works cars out of contention. After early tyre failures on the Pete and Leo Geoghegan car, as well as the Fred Gibson and Barry Seton car, Turner called Moffat into the pits for a tyre change. There it was found that Moffat had been far easier on his tyres than either Pete Geoghegan or Seton and that the stop was not necessary. As of 2014 Moffat believes that this decision cost himself and co-driver Alan Hamilton the race win. The day after the race, Ford ran a full page newspaper advert stating "We were a little deflated" referring to the tyre failures.

1969 also became famous due to the first lap crash which saw at least one third of the field forced to retire or carry on with accident damage. John French, who was placed about 10th at the time, rolled his Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV at Skyline in front of the field, as did Bill Brown who rolled his Falcon trying to avoid the Alfa. For Brown, it would be the first of three rollover's at Bathurst on the same piece of road (McPhillamy Park - Skyline) in three years, culminating in his lucky escape from death in 1971.

Class structure[edit]
