Dick Johnson rose to motorsport superstardom in 1981 as he made good on the promise he showed at Bathurst in 1980 – before disaster struck in the shape of a bowling-ball-sized rock. It was the rock incident of 1980 and the resulting impromptu telethon that not only gave Johnson the budget he needed to build TRU-BLU Mk11, but it also opened the doors at Ford and spearheaded a relationship with the car marque that has spanned some 40+ years.
Returning to Mount Panorama in 1981, Dick Johnson with loyal co-driver John French claimed a historic victory in the James Hardie 1000. One of the most popular wins in the long history of the race was achieved on a history-making day at the Mountain. It was this legendary victory that stopped the winning streak of Peter Brock and Jim Richards and reignited the fierce Ford vs Holden rivalry on the track. The Dick Johnson Racing Legend T-Shirt features the iconic number 17 from the car livery on the chest and a DJR logo on the nape of the neck. Soft and lightweight, with the right amount of stretch, it’s comfortable and flattering for all.
