Garry Rogers is now known to race fans as the owner of Garry Rogers Motorsport who in recent years carried the hopes of Volvo in the Supercars before switching back to Holden but before achieving team owning success in Supercars, Garry tried his hand at AUSCAR racing.
Garry’s AUSCAR’s were beautifully presented in Valvoline sponsorship and his cars were frequently seen up the pointy end of the field with Garry winning the Round 6 race of the 1993/94 season at Surfers Paradise.
Garry raced both Holden’s and Fords in the AUSCAR series and his Ford for a time was one of Ford’s best chances of victory in a category that was dominated by Holden.
In 2015, GRM’s #36 made an appearance at Queensland Raceway alongside other Garry Rogers cars and still looked as good as ever.
#35 can be seen in Garry’s workshop alongside his other well known cars, this car didn’t turn a lap in anger but GRM drivers like James Moffat got to take it for a spin.
