Wednesday August 18 at 6.30pm: 1999 Oran Park Race 30

Thursday August 19 at 6.30pm: 1999 Oran Park Race 31

Peter Doulman’s crash into the tyre barrier on lap 4 isn’t the only time cars get airbourne at Oran Park in 1999.

Chaos continues into the final moments when Darren Pate loses it on the final corner, clobbering Mick Donaher with the pair limping across the line.

Friday August 20 at 6.30pm: 2001 Adelaide Race 3

The second round of the season and Craig Lowndes’ first year in a Ford after a controversial move from the Lion.

After winning with HRT in the previous season, the 1999 champion proved why he is one of the best drivers to ever grace the Supercars championship.

Lowndes qualified eighth for the first of two 250-kilometre races of the Clipsal 500 for Gibson Motorsport Ford AU Falcon.

The rest is a masterclass.

Sunday August 22 at 10.00am: 2002 Bathurst 1000

Skaife’s ‘Golden Child’ win.

The car that survived a plastic bag scare restricting its air intake and the Holden ace that defied team orders by keeping his foot flat to the floor.

Watch the Chassis No. 45 that won two championships, two Bathurst’s and two Clipsal’s, one of the most successful Holdens of all time, with the five-time champion at the wheel.

Plus, watch the incredible moment when a five-minute penalty is awarded to Greg Murphy for a pit lane infringement.
