Scalextric Ford Cortina GT 1964 Bathurst - Ian & Leo Geoghegan
Of the Geoghegan brothers, Ian ‘Pete’ Geoghegan, concentrated mainly on, and enjoyed much success in, sedans winning five Australian touring car championships. Leo spent much of his racing career in open-wheelers and sports racing cars. Leo Geoghegan was one of the few local heroes capable of rubbing wheels with drivers of the quality of Jim Clark, Graham Hill and Stirling Moss and went on to win back-to-back Australian F2 championships in 1973-74.
Leo Geoghegan also achieved the rare distinction for an Australian of winning an international Grand Prix, the Japanese Grand Prix in 1969 at Fuji Speedway, driving his ex-Jim Clark Lotus 39-Repco V8. Leo’s versatility meant that each October from 1963 to 1973 (bar 1966) he raced in the annual Bathurst 500/1000 endurance race. Leo Geoghegan will be remembered for his classical, elegant driving style and for being a gentleman with commendable sporting instincts.
