This car won the 1992 Tooheys Bathurst 1000.

DRIVERS: Jim Richards and Mark Skaife

HISTORY
The 1992 Tooheys 1000 was the 33rd running of the Bathurst 1000 touring car race. It was held at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst.
The race was won for the second year in a row by Jim Richards and Mark Skaife driving a Gibson Motor Sport prepared Nissan Skyline GT-R, the pair becoming the first back to back Bathurst winners since Peter Brock and Larry Perkins had won in 1983 and 1984. Richards and Skaife had to be declared the winners after a rainstorm swept across the race in the closing stages causing many accidents in conditions deemed by race officials too dangerous to continue. The race results were issued as at the end of the 143rd lap, 18 laps short of full race distance. This was the second time in the event’s history where the race was stopped and results declared before the scheduled laps were completed (previous occasion was in 1981).
The Dick Johnson Racing run Ford Sierra of Dick Johnson and John Bowe was classified in second position with Richards and Skaife’s team mates Anders Olofsson and Neil Crompton in third.

PRESS RELEASE INFORMATION FROM SLOT.IT :
The Nissan Skyline R32 is produced with the same mechanical part as the DTM Slot.It: 21k ‘black’ inline engine, 15.8mm wheels.
The body weighs 20g, and the interlocking interior, like the most recent Slot.it models, can be removed and replaced without any effort, reaching a weight of about 15g if a thermoformed interior is used.
The chassis is designed to directly accommodate the universal Slot.it ‘type C’ chip (oXigen / Scalextric SSD / Carrera D132) or the new digital chip for Carrera D132; in addition the motor wiring comes with a connector that allows you to mount the Slot.it digital chips without having to resort to any soldering (our future digital chips will be also made with this type of connector).
Inside the package, as an optional to be assembled on the chassis, there are two ‘whiskers’ to improve the support of the front of the model when cornering.
