Although we are now not involved in the workshop side of the Motorsport industry. We take the opportunity to run our own Sierra Cosworth at various events. We were invited to take part in the 2018/19 Bathurst Reunion held at Hampton Downs running the international circuit, where we competed against a mix of 4, 6, and 8 cylinder cars from the earlier Bathurst period. This is the vehicle built from ground up by Lodge Auto Centre and features in our news page. The vehicle ran faultless for the entire event, some great battles were had with other competitors.
