Allison did crash at Amaroo in 1974, however it could be something else. I can't find results for the events in 1972 or 1973 and the photos don't give much detail unfortunately.

Bruce Allison ran as #62 in AF2 in 1974. He was driving a Birrana 274 Ford sponsored by Hobby & Toyland Racing. For 1975 he moved up to F5000 where he was fairly successful, earning drives in Europe and the USA. He was (still is I guess) a mate of Alan Jones and they lived together in Europe. I think he also did some AFX/Shellsport rounds in England. I think he even got offered a test with Surtees but declined it on Alan's advice.

Just noticed Racer's post and I also cannot offer any individual race results, either, other than Amaroo. I can say that he scored points at Hume Weir, Calder, Phillip Island and Lakeside.

Amaroo, along with Oran Park, Adelaide Intl and Symmonds Plain he did not score in. I feel Racer may have nailed it as Bruce did DNF Amaroo after crashing on lap 8.

Considering it is Amaroo Park, which part of the track would that be?

Most of the track was not protected by armco barriers. Plus, the landscape arount the track is very undulating, unlike in the second photograph.
