I asked Bob Abberfield and he remembered the incident...The chequered flag had come down and John went by, up the hill, maybe he lost concentration or something but he ran up the bank and rolled it on the slow-down lap.Oh, and Jacer, thank you for identifying Rick Pickering. Once you know that name it's easily picked up from the name on the car, isn't it?.
This happened in late 1973.
I remember overhearing Col Wear remarking to J O’B .....’You need to keep it on the island even after the race is finished’. !!
Interestingly, in the same season, Geoff Brabham had an off at a similar spot at Amaroo on the warm up lap.
