Bathurst 1988
Torana L34

Because of the rules governing turbo technology, the scales were tipping away from the V8 by 1988. Brock, meanwhile, had had a much-published split with Holden's and switched to racing a BMW. Still, Holden stalwarts Larry Perkins and Allan Grice staged some almighty duels during the 1988 season. Tom Walkinshaw had been employed by Holden to develop the VL racer further and the HSV organisation (owned by Walkinshaw and Holden's) produced a Group A special with fuel injection and body modifications to make the car more stable at speed.

Holden Special Vehicles ran two cars in the 1988 Great Race with Walkinshaw and Perkins as lead drivers. Although the Holden ran as high as third outright, it failed to keep check on the rampaging Fords. Nonetheless, it did win the AGP support race that year in Adelaide.
