Alan Moffat - Cosworth 'Cologne' Capri photos

Alan Moffat - Cosworth 'Cologne' Capri photos

Wanneroo Raceway near Perth, Western Australia circa 1970's.

Moffat, Geoghegan, Richards...

(Peter Brock graciously signed the photo for me at a much later date - even though he wasn't able to attend this particular race event! It was the only photo that I had readily available...)

Love him or hate him, Canadian-born Alan Moffat aced the field in his V6 Cosworth Capri against the V8 350 GTS Monaro's and mighty V8 SLR Toranas...

I can still remember the scream that was reminescent of a jet-engine as that Capri came up, over and down the hill before breaking and turning into the main straightaway...


The following specs on the car are from the Alan Moffat official website:
