Moffat/Ickx leading Bond/Hamilton in their Ford XC Falcon Hardtops, 1977 Hardie-Ferodo 1000

1977 - one of the great Bathurst 1000 races. Alan Moffat (partnered with Jacky Ickx of all people) leads Colin Bond across the line for a Ford 1-2. During the race team boss Moffat offered Bond a drive alongside him for 1978. This came in handy when the leader's car hit trouble and Bond did the courteous thing and refused to pass for the win. He later said he regretted being such a good employee!
