DYNAMIC DUO JOHNSON AND BOWE TO APPEAR ON SHANNONS LEGENDS OF MOTORSPORT
Published 04 August 2014
Bathurst victors Dick Johnson and John Bowe reunite for next episode of new 7mate series …
SHANNONS Legends of Motorsport continues on 7mate this weekend with special guests, Dick Johnson and John Bowe.
The Hall of Famers formed a successful 11-year partnership as teammates between 1988 and 1998 and claimed two Bathurst 1000 wins together in 1989 and 1994 and three Australian Touring Car Championships between them in 1988, 1989 and 1995.
The pair of Ford legends join Neil Crompton and the Shannons Legends of Motorsport team to take a ride back down memory lane via the vast archive vision of Seven Sport with a pair of their ultra-successful Shell Ford Sierras providing a stunning backdrop.
The third episode in a 12-part series was filmed in front of a live audience at Bowden’s Own Car Collection on the Sunshine Coast.
Mark Oastler takes an up-close look at the 1989 Bathurst-winning turbocharged #17 Shell Ford Sierra RS500, while Aaron Noonan returns too with some more golden vision from the vault, much of it unseen in many years and unearthed from deep in the Seven Sport library.
There’s plenty of familiar old vision as well as some rare gems so tune in for the series that celebrates Aussie motorsport’s golden era this Saturday, August 9 on 7mate.
Times are varied in different markets and are as follows:
10.00am – Perth
4.30pm – Sydney, Melbourne
5.00pm – Brisbane, Adelaide
Replays will air on 7mate on Wednesday August 13 at 3.00pm in all markets and Thursday August 14, also at 3.00pm in all markets.
Every episode of the Shannons Legends of Motorsport is also available to watch on the Shannons Club website after it first airs on 7mate.
