The Bruno Carosi Mark 5

The many visitors to the Longford pub never fail to notice the Mark 5 in one of the information displays on the walls there, Ross A included, who asks what has become of Bruno and the car.
Well, the car was destroyed in a fire, unfortunately, and Bruno later raced a Jag of some sort. Last I heard, admittedly some time ago, he was president of the Tasmanian Jag club. The Mark 5 was REPCO Holden powered, had X2 HD suspension and front disc brakes and one of the things it was famous for was its involvement in a very rare race dead heat.
