1987 Australian Touring Car season
|1987 Australian Touring Car season|
The 1987 Australian Touring Car season was the 28th year of touring car racing in Australia since the first runnings of the Australian Touring Car Championship and the forerunner of the present-day Bathurst 1000, the Armstrong 500.
There were 16 touring car race meetings held during 1987: a nine-round series, the 1987 Australian Touring Car Championship (ATCC); a support programme event at the 1987 Australian Grand Prix; and six long-distance races, nicknamed 'enduros', two of which were rounds of the one-off 1987 World Touring Car Championship (WTCC).
For the first time, the ATCC had a major series sponsor in the form of oil company Shell, who provided some AU$275,000 in prize money (previously teams and drivers had received as little as $1,250 for an ATCC round win).
