Season review

The seventh Australian Rally Championship was expanded to seven events now venturing to the West with the first ever round to be staged in West Australia. This season consisted of two events in Victoria and one each in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and West Australia. 1974 was to be the last year of domination from the Holden Torana GTR XU-1's. Bond and Shepheard had four wins and a second to win the championship, but had increasing opposition from the Datsun 240Z's of Stewart McLeod/Adrian Mortimer and Ross Dunkerton/John Large.
