Ford and Holden announcements from Biante

The following models in 1:18 scale have just been announced and you can preorder any now.

Preorders close 19th March and a phone number is required.

HOLDEN VL COMMODORE SS GROUP A 1987 ATCC – PETER BROCK #05

B182703G $275

Preorder Now

First up we have Peter Brock’s Holden VL Commodore SS Group A from the 1987 Australian Touring Car Championship in 1:18 scale. While the new VL didn’t see any podiums in 1987, it was a significant car due to Brock’s well-publicised split with the factory and the demise of the Holden Dealer Team. This was the last time he would drive a Holden in the ATCC until 1991.

 

 

 

HOLDEN VS COMMODORE – 1997 SANDOWN WINNER – HRT MURPHY/LOWNDES

B180402J $275  Sandown 500 on the door makes it different to other 1997 Models.

Preorder Now

Next up we have the 1997 Sandown 500-winning HRT Holden VS Commodore of Craig Lowndes and Greg Murphy, also in 1:18. After taking out the 1996 ATCC, Lowndes went to try his luck in Europe in 1997, while Murphy became a full-time driver for HRT, coming fourth in the ATCC. The drivers paired up again for the enduros though and while they crashed out of the Primus 1000 Classic at Bathurst, they took out the rain-interrupted Tickford 500 at Sandown.

 

We also have two classic 1:18 touring cars for Ford fans:

FORD EF FALCON DNF 1995 BATHURST 1000 – GSR #30 – SETON/PARSONS

B180501A $275

Preorder Now

In 1995 Glenn Seton and David Parsons were leading The Great Race race by 7 seconds and only 10 laps from home when their EF Falcon dropped a valve and limped to a stop near The Cutting. A win would have been particularly serendipitous, as Seton’s father Bo had won the 1965 race and had helped build the engine up.

 

FORD EF FALCON 1996 BATHURST 1000 – CASTROL ELLERY/LONGHURST #25

B180501B $275

Preorder Now

We will also be producing the 3rd-placed Castrol EF Falcon of Tony Longhurst and Steven Ellery from the 1996 Bathurst 1000, a great result after starting from back in 8th place on the grid.

SENSATIONAL ADELAIDE THE ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE ADELAIDE 500

Just announced and available for preorder.

 

Priced at $100

Preorder Now

A phone number is essential.

The Adelaide 500 is the only event to sit in the Supercars Hall of Fame and, for the first time, the complete history of this world-class motorsport event is being celebrated in a limited edition, hardcover collector’s book.

Produced by the V8 Sleuth team behind a range of other successful motorsport publications, the book, ‘Sensational Adelaide: The Illustrated History of the Adelaide 500’, is a 400 page look back at one of the biggest touring car races the world has ever seen.

From 1999 to 2020 the event attracted thousands of fans to the parklands street circuit, turning on some of the best racing and biggest events on the annual motorsport calendar.

This hardcover collector’s book features:
•A review chapter summarising each year’s event covering 1999 to 2020
•A special section including a photo of each and every Supercar to compete in every event (approximately 670 car photos!)
•Never before published archive photos bringing 20-plus years of Adelaide 500 racing to life
•Full event statistics section, including driver index of all drivers to have competed in the Adelaide 500

2016 Adelaide 500 winner and proud South Australian Nick Percat has penned the foreword for the book, documenting his passion for racing and how he went from a fan hanging off the fence watching his Supercar heroes’ race to lining up on the grid and beating them to win the event in just his third full season in the category.

First held in 1999, the Adelaide 500 became a jewel in the crown of Supercars racing and has won numerous awards over the course of the years, all while playing host to the biggest domestic stars of the V8 category.

The event’s roll call of overall winners reads like a who’s who of Supercars racing, including inaugural winner Craig Lowndes, Mark Skaife, Jamie Whincup, Scott McLaughlin, Shane van Gisbergen, Garth Tander, Will Davison, Rick Kelly, James Courtney, Jason Bright and Nick Percat.

Lowndes won the first Adelaide 500 in 1999 and McLaughlin won the last held in 2020 before the State Government elected to kill off the event and discontinue it for 2021.

Available in mid-2021, this publication is a must-have for fans of the Adelaide 500 or Supercars and motorsport in general and provides a look back at a wildly popular event that fans far and wide have raved about for years.
