Centaur Waggott


The Centaur Waggott GT came about after Wal Anderson approached John French with the idea of building a special sports car. Wal had an impressive engine, one of Merv Waggott’s twin cam Holden grey motor’s and was loking for a special car to put it in. They both knew Tim Harlock, a clever mechanical engineer with more than a passing interest in motorsport. The result of this collaboration was a well-conceived and skillfully executed GT car, a car that won straight out of the box and almost scored a 100% win rate with JOhn French, only to be beaten once by a more powerful open-wheeler. This then was the 1962 Australian GT Championship winning car!
