Bob Holden reminisces on racing starting in the 50s: Bruce McLaren, Jack Brabham

Bob Holden started racing in the late 50s. I asked him if he raced against Bob Jane who had just died. He hadn’t raced against him much but he did reminisce on an incredibly varied career as an Aussie Battler who over came great adversity.


He raced against Bruce McLaren who took an interest in Bob’s performance.

I have spoken about his win in the Bathurst 500 in a Mini at length on another occasion and mention it briefly here.

Bob is 85 years old and still racing.
