Peter Brocks' first Bathurst crown came in the 1972 Hardie-Ferodo 500, the 14th running of the Bathurst touring car race. This was the last race to be held over the original distance of 500 miles and the last year drivers were able to race without the assistance of a co-driver. The race was held on October 1, 1972 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst. It was open to cars eligible to the locally developed CAMS Series Production touring car regulations with four classes based on CP units, a combination of engine capacity (in cubic centimetres) and purchase price (Australian dollars) of the vehicle.
