Following the Commodore's disappointing showing during the 1985 season, and at Bathurst in particular, Commodores were developed to a point of again being potential winners On the shorter touring car title races they were no match for the BMWs, turbo Volvo and Nissans, but Mount Panorama was the home of the long-legged V8.

During that year, the Holdens raced in Europe for the first time, at selected rounds of their championship. Grice's style of driving impressed the crowds as he pushed some of the world's top touring car outfits, leading on occasions and frequently ousted only by bad luck. The European experience held him in good stead and in 1986, after so many years of trying, Grice finally won the race. Harvey and Neil Lowe were second while Brock, with Moffat as co-driver, was fifth after wrecking an oil cooler in a pit stop.
