It's 40 years since the famed Repco Reliability Trial took place, so what better time to look through our bookshelf for some original memories? The 1979 Repco Round Australia Trial was one of the last great Round Australia adventures of the “rough as guts” format and is remembered for the event-winning performance of the all-conquering Holden Commodores. Over three weeks, the field of over 200 crews blasted their way around Australia in an anti-clockwise direction, gaining the most media coverage for any similar event ever held. Bill Tuckey and Tom Floyd followed the event around by car and light plane, and were on hand to see the action, the heartache, the bitter arguments and the jubilation at the finish. If you were too young to remember the event or you were there when it all unfolded, this book is worth buying as a reminder of this ground-breaking event. Do yourself a favour and try and get hold of a secondhand copy online. You'll be glad you did.
