The international Group A touring car regulations introduced to Australia full-time in 1985 helped open the door to a unique era of tin-top racing where local drivers were able to take on the best of the world – both at home and abroad. The next step came in 1987 with the introduction of the very first World Touring Car Championship. Mount Panorama’s annual October classic in Bathurst scored a spot on the calendar, as did a race a week later on the combined road circuit/oval at Calder Park in Melbourne.

Held over 11 rounds, the WTCC would see BMW driver Roberto Ravaglia take the driver’s crown and Ford, through its black and red Texaco/Eggenberger Sierras, the manufacturer’s title. But at the beginning of the year, Peter Brock’s relationship with Holden soured and the factory withdrew its support, leaving his empire (and WTCC plans) in tatters. Out of a job, co-driver Allan Moffat put together a deal to buy the new un-raced HDT VL Commodore that had been prepped during the off-season, using a front man friend to buy the car from Brock.
