2020 50c 60 Years of Australian Supercars 1960/2020 Mazda RX-7 Uncirculated Coin in Card.

Australia enjoys an enduring love affair with Supercars racing, and this year celebrates 60 years of the Australian Touring Car Championship.

The first Australian Touring Car Championship was held in 1960 at Gnoo Blas NSW, where the single-race title was won by David McKay.

An Australian-made car first won the ATCC in 1970 - the second year of the title being decided over a series of races - when a Holden Monaro GTS 350 ended a decade of dominance by British and American cars.

Australia enjoys an enduring love affair with Supercars racing, and this year celebrates 60 years of the Australian Touring Car Championship.

Jaguars dominated the early years, but V8 power took over in 1965, when Norm Beechy won at Sandown in the first Ford Mustang brought to Australia. V8-engined cars have subsequently accounted for all but 10 titles. Since the arrival of the Mustang in 1965, Australians have had a passion for V8 engines that remains the foundation of the sport.

This fascination with V8's reached its zenith in the Supercars era from the 1990s to now, a Holden-versus-Ford era that has had the Red Lion ahead with 15 Supercars titles to the Blue Oval's 12. However, over the total 60 years of the ATCC Ford leads with 26 titles to Holden's 21

Each uncirculated coin is presented in a card featuring corresponding vehicle model information.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark.

Each coin is issued as Australian Legal tender.
