This week we’re bringing you a special ‘From the Archives’ episode of the V8 Sleuth Podcast powered by Repco featuring an interview with the late Bob Jane. Recorded in February 2008 by the National Library of Australia, Jane talks about his early life growing up in Brunswick, racing bicycles before getting into car racing, how he accidentally got into the tyre business, shares stories from his victories in the early years of the ‘Great Race’, plus putting the Australian Grand Prix back on the map in the 1980s and bringing NASCAR down under with the Thunderdome.
