Quite few places you can see several belletts. I think I spotted one GT and one sedan at least. :)

Quite remarkable year for me in bathurst, I must admit. lots of japanese entries, probably one of the last years studebakers still being in, Minis beating hands down everything and last but not least, so far only year when flying finn has conquered the mountain as Rauno Aaltonen with Bob Holden took the victory.

I often wonder how the Bellett GT would have fared; I mean, probably better than 29th outright or whatever, but probably not an outright contender. But I wonder....

look at the results from the 1966 Rothmans 12 hour at the old Surfers Paradise circuit, and that'll give u a few pointers....
