From Brock's Polariser to the Superman Polar Set

At Allplastics we are regularly involved with exciting television and movie production programmes requiring customised items fabricated from a diverse range of materials and colours.We vividly recall our involvement in the "Superman" movies where the acrylic chards were cut and polished to construct Superman’s Fortress of Solitude in Antarctica to huge Polycarbonate and Acrylic Panels for the "Matrix" filmed in Australia. Colourful composite translucent panels were supplied for the "Green Lantern" production. Recently we were asked to fabricate a component known as the "Energy Polarizer" for the Brock mini-series on Channel 10.

 
 
 

Peter Brock

Peter Geoffrey Brock, otherwise known as "Peter Perfect", "The King of the Mountain" or simply "Brocky", was one of Australia's best-known and most successful motor racing drivers. Brock was most often associated with Holden for almost 40 years, although he raced vehicles of other manufacturers including BMW, Ford, Volvo, Porsche and Peugeot. He won the Bathurst 1000 endurance race nine times, the Sandown 500 touring car race nine times, the Australian Touring Car Championship three times, the Bathurst 24 Hour once and was inducted into the V8 Supercars Hall of Fame in 2001. Brock's business activities included the Holden Dealer Team (HDT) that produced Brock's racing machines as well as a number of modified high-performance road versions of his racing cars.

Energy Polarizer

In 1986, Australian motor racing driver Peter Brock unveiled a device called an Energy Polarizer, which consisted of a black box containing a sliver of crystal surrounded by magnets, with promises it could improve the fuel performance and handling of any car which uses it. Despite no scientific testing of it, Brock claimed it worked through "aligning the molecules" of the car, and began fitting the device to all (General Motors) Holden Dealer Team specials. Other benefits claimed by the device included absorbing road shocks more completely and quietly, to reduce overall vehicle noises (both inside and outside) to achieve greater efficiency of the power train and steering systems, improving the engine and suspension performance and to create a more pleasant environment for the driver and passenger.

Car Modifications

Brock began publicly supporting and, eventually, began to fit to all Holden Dealer Team specials a device called the "Energy Polariser" containing crystals and magnets in an epoxy resin that, it was claimed, improved the performance and handling of vehicles through "aligning the molecules". The device was based on the principles of orgone energy pseudoscience. The "Polariser" is being sold once more in an official HDT, Brock tribute upgrade pack. The overwhelming majority of the Australian motoring community regarded the device as pseudoscience, and Brock's promotion of it drove away HDT drivers like John Harvey, Allan Moffat and Larry Perkins. Brock also recommended tyre pressures of 22psi(150kPa) for his polariser-equipped vehicles, a level which many regarded as near-dangerously low. Holden, fearing the consequences of being associated with the device and a resulting breakdown in communications over Brock's plans for new models, cut ties with Brock and set up an alternative racing/modification operation, Holden Special Vehicles. During this period, Brock also became involved in the importation and even the modification of the Lada Samara, a cheap Soviet-built hatchback a world away from the high-performance V8-powered Commodores he was famous for. The Lada deal came at the right time for the Brock organisation as it saved the struggling outfit from potential bankruptcy. After his work with Lada, Brock, during the period 1988-1990 sold around 200 personally modified EA-series Ford Falcons, Fairmont Ghias, Fairlanes and Mavericks through Austech Automotive Developments.
