The 1984 James Hardie 1000 was the 25th running of the Bathurst 1000 touring car race. It was held on 30 September 1984 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst in New South Wales, Australia and was Round 4 of the 1984 Australian Endurance Championship. This race was celebrated as 'The Last of the Big Bangers', in reference to the Group C touring cars, which were competing at Bathurst for the last time.

The race was won by Peter Brock and Larry Perkins driving a Holden VK Commodore for the Holden Dealer Team, the third consecutive victory for Brock, Perkins and the HDT. It was the most dominant team performance for the HDT in the history of the race as the team claimed a 1-2 finish with John Harvey and David Parsons backing up their team leaders by finishing second.


Group C
This was the last Bathurst 1000 to include Group C Touring Cars, which had first contested the Bathurst 1000 in 1973. While a production-based category, continual parity adjustments to keep the leading vehicles roughly at the same pace had seen the cars become wildly over-specified. That led to a decision by the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) in mid-1983 that Australian touring car racing would abandon its locally developed Group C rules and would be run under regulations based on the FIA's international Group A rules from 1 January 1985.
The major contenders in Group C were the V8-engined Ford Falcons and Holden Commodores, the lone V12 Jaguar XJ-S and 6 cylinder BMW 635 CSi, the rotary Mazda RX-7's, and the Nissan Bluebird turbos. Also running in Group C were the now outdated Chevrolet Camaro Z28s.
It would be the final Bathurst appearance for the Bluebird turbo which would be replaced in Group A in 1986 by the Nissan Skyline DR30 RS. After the car made its debut in the inaugural 500-mile race at Phillip Island in 1960, it would be the final Bathurst 1000 for the Ford Falcon until 1992. The Commodore (in various models), Jaguar, BMW and Mazda all saw action during the Group A years in Australia (1985–1992).
Area71 parts are printed with the finest, most accurate and state of the art industrial grade SLS technology based printers. Parts are printed in ultra-high resolution, and finished with a unique black carbon composite compound treatment or as an alternative, in order to comply to some racing regulations available also in “standard grey” finish.
With the improvement of standards in manufacturing, another benefit is that the parts are now much easier to prepare for painting.
3D printed nylon parts are generally porous, very rough and in order to be painted they need to be “sealed”, and very likely some details may get lost during this process. During the manufacturing process, a post processing is performed at the factory to deliver parts already partially “sealed” and almost ready to paint. There is no need to wash the parts to remove mold grease or stains left from molding process, no solvents to be used, no need to trim windows openings and wheel arches like on resin parts and bodies, no mold lines to remove etc., plus the material is rock solid strong, so no danger to damage the parts if “heavy” sanded by mistake.
All you have to do to prepare the parts for painting is to spray a light coat of Tamiya Grey Primer (or any other primer of your choice), let it dry and “cure” for 24hrs, then sand the part with a 400 grit sand paper to remove the light surface roughness. After this step, spray another light coat of primer and wet sand with 1000 grit, and part is ready to be painted just like any other plastic or resin body.
Quick and easy. Happy modeling!!!
