10 ALFA ROMEO
The Italian make scored a single Australian Touring Car Championship race win with Ray Gulson’s class victory in his Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV at Oran Park Raceway in 1974. Alfa Romeo was also a class contender with Colin Bond and his GTV6 in the early years of Group A in the mid 1980s.
Porsche was one point shy of winning the Australian Touring Car Championship in 1969 and four off in 1970. Jim McKeown won two races with his Porsche 911S in the latter season, the only two victories for the German make in its brief appearance in Australian touring cars.
Mazda had a brief but significant stint in the Australian Touring Car Championship in the early 1980s. Allan Moffat won the title in the rotary-powered RX-7 in 1983, the first championship win for a Japa- nese manufacturer, claiming race wins across three seasons.
Volvo enjoyed two successful spells in Australian touring cars. Robbie Francevic won the title with the 240T in 1986, though the Volvo team soon disbanded. Volvo teamed up with Garry Rogers Motorsport from 2014 to 2016, taking multiple wins with Scott McLaughlin.
