This model depicts racing drivers Peter Brock and Graeme Crosby’s Holden VP Commodore, which was driven at the 1992 Nissan Mobil 500 in Wellington.
The Nissan Mobil 500 (later dubbed the ‘Wellington 500’), transformed the Wellington waterfront into a fast (and at times dangerous) race circuit. From 1985 to 1996, top touring race car drivers from around the world took their high performance touring cars to the limit, driving at speeds of 200km/hr or more around the narrow streets of Wellington. Before the waterfront developed into the artistic public space we know today, it was a mecca for fast cars and fearless top overseas drivers that drew big crowds of motorsport enthusiasts and petrol heads from all over New Zealand and the globe. The event built an international reputation and by 1989 Wellington was dubbed ‘the Monte Carlo of the South Pacific.’
