Today marks the 20th anniversary of the day Denny Hulme died of a heart attack during the Bathurst 1000.

Among the hype of the 50-year celebrations of the touring car race at Mt Panorama, memories the great Kiwi driver remain vivid among the fans.

Hulme, who was 56, was driving with Paul Morris when the BMW M3 he shared veered off the circuit and scraped along the concrete wall down Conrod Straight before it coasted to a halt.

There was no impact, no contact with another car just an innocuous end to a life that was defined by a win in the 1967 Formula One World Championship.
