Bathurst legend John Goss will be inducted into the Motorsport Australia Hall of Fame.

Goss, 79, will receive the honour ahead of this year’s Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

The two-time Great Race winner was one of the inaugural inductees into the Bathurst Legends Lane alongside Kevin Bartlett.

Goss and Bartlett won the 1974 Hardie Ferodo 1000 in an XA Ford Falcon hardtop.

He added a second victory in 1985 alongside Armin Hahne in a Tom Walkinshaw Racing-run Jaguar XJS.

In 2018, Goss was named on the Queen’s Birthday Honours list as the recipient of a Medal of the Order of Australia.


Goss’ motorsport days go as far back to his time as a test mechanic for Jack Brabham.

The honour will come at the Australian Grand Prix, which Goss won in 1976 in a Matich Repco A53.

Goss is one of four inductees in this year’s Hall of Fame, with drag racing legend Victor Bray, karter Remo Luciani and the late Joan Richmond.

Supercars will also race at the Grand Prix next weekend.

The 2023 Repco Supercars Championship will resume at the Beaurepaires Melbourne SuperSprint on March 30-April 2.
