Before we get too carried away with the world of high-tech open-wheelers at the AGP this weekend, take a look at Larry Perkins driving the freshly restored PE041 he last drove at Bathurst in 2003. We’ve been really stoked to help Jack and Larry out with several gearbox rebuilds for cars Perkins Engineering have been restoring of late, so seeing LP get out there and drive this one like he’s barely been away is awesome. As we’ve said before, we do miss the H-Pattern like many of you do and it doesn’t get much better than watching Larry use one……….

We've certainly been caught up in our latest high tech products of late, but it's nice to get back to our roots too..... Today we finished off a proper, period correct, 90's V8 Touring-Car H6S, along with the Chev Bellhousing for a restoration of a Perkins Built VS Commodore. #holingerheritage #h6s #perkins #vscommodore

We're very pleased to be sponsoring Tim Macrow for the 2020 S5000 season, after working closely with him over the last few years developing these beasts. The season starts at the F1 Australian Grand Prix in 2 weeks so if you get a chance to attend, don't miss the S5000 cars! #s5000 #holinger #transaxle #australianmanufacturing

Well this year is a wrap for us. 2019 has been a milestone year for this company, our product range has reached new levels of diversity and we’re involved with great projects and people the world over. Recently we reached the day that marked the 10 year anniversary of Peter Holinger’s passing, so in reflecting on the last 10 years, whilst we’ve had some downs, there have been plenty of ups and we hope he’d be proud of what we’ve achieved in the last decade, continuing on the way he would want. Many of us worked under Pete, learning a great deal from him, his legacy is definitely a lasting one. We will note he’d probably cringe at this post and social media in general, but he deserves to be remembered and acknowledged. We’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Stay safe and have fun!

The other Classic Rally held last weekend was the Killarney Historic Rally in Ireland. We couldn't be better represented than by Viking Motorsport and Craig Breen. Check out the in-car:

A couple of great Classic Rally's were held last weekend on opposite ends of the globe, locally the Alpine Rally in Victoria where we had more than 15 gearboxes, 5 different types, competing in a wide range of cars. It always nice to be well represented in events like this.

A huge congratulations must go to Brabham Automotive after their highly successful debut race last weekend. We’re enormously proud to have supplied them with a bespoke version of our MFT Transaxle for use in this car. Whilst of course it’s always fantastic to be involved with any project of such a high-calibre and with such a famous name attached, this is particularly special for Holinger Engineering, as this company may not have existed without Brabham. Peter Holinger and David Nash, the fathers of current Holinger directors John and Leigh respectively, got their start in Motorsport working for Repco-Brabham, being part of the design and manufacturing team responsible for delivering the little engine from Down-Under to the Brabham F1 team in the 60’s. The Repco V8 powered Sir Jack to win the 1966 Formula One World Championship, famously the only driver to do so in a car bearing his own name. Peter Holinger founded Holinger Engineering to produce parts for this engine and even used one in his own cars, winning 3 Australian Hill-Climb championships with Repco-Brabham power. So for us to be once again involved with the Brabham name, some 50 years later, is very special and something we’re sure Pete would be proud of. On the technical side of things: what a car the Brabham BT62 is! It’s a great testament to what we can do in Australia, our engineering abilities are truly world class but they are sometimes over-looked or maybe dismissed when they shouldn’t be. Like the old Repco engines, it’s great to see that these cars being built here and we couldn’t be happier to be supplying the project. This is a real Aussie, World-Class-Supercar. A powerful V8 Engine, coupled to a light-weight but super-sturdy transmission, with a no-nonsense layout……. More wins will be in the cars future we're sure. #MFT #Australianmanufacturing #Brabham #BT62
