George Fury

31/1/1945

Top Australian Rally and Touring Car driver. He was one of the most gifted drivers in Australia during the 70s and 80s. As a leading works driver for the Datsun (later to become Nissan) Rally Team, Fury displayed devastating form behind the wheel of the company's Datsun 710s and Stanzas before giving up rallying for a career in touring car racing, driving a Nissan Bluebird Turbo in the Australian Touring Car Championship. In 1990 George Fury, the quietly spoken bus driver-cum-farmer from Talmalmo, simply hung up his driving gloves and retired to his farm by the lake.
