During the mid 70s Bill Patterson Holden won a contract with Holden to modify the Torana A9X race cars which were trucked to the Dealership in Ringwood, where wheel arch flares were added and other minor modifications made, before being sent back to Holden in Dandenong for distribution to the Holden race teams.
In 1976 Peter Brock obtained a small sponsorship package for his Team Brock Torana L34 from Bill Patterson to run at Bathurst and finished third outright.
During this time Bill Patterson BMW purchased a South African race prepared BMW 3.5 CSL for Peter Brock to take and compete at the 1976 24hr Le Mans.
Mid to late 1970s, Bill Patterson, through his Holden, BMW and Isuzu Dealerships supplied the support vehicles and sponsorship for the Sandown 500.
1977 saw Peter Brock sell his racing team to Bill Patterson. It was then renamed Bill Patterson Racing and a three car team was sent to Bathurst. Brock and brother Phillip finished fourth outright, the other two cars were driven by Doug Chivas / Tony Roberts who finished seventh and Englishman Gerry Marshall and South African Basil Van Rooyan DNF. It was a huge effort.
