Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the 1:18 Holden ZB Commodore V8 Supercar of Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Red Bull Ampol Racing. The exclusive replica model as raced by Shane van Gisbergen to a famous victory in the last ever Supercars race at New Zealand’s historic Pukekohe Park Raceway in Race 29 of the ITM Auckland Supersprint in the 2022 V8 Supercars Championship.
The Red Bull made a fitting tribute to the last race at Pukekohe with traditional New Zealand silver ferns and stars adorning the bonnet with “Thanks Pukekohe” on the front doors. Badges celebrating Van Gisbergen’s 2016 and 2021 Driver Champion titles have also been added to the sides of the bonnet.
After 2 years away from the Pukekohe track, current Champion and Auckland native, Shane Van Gisbergen fittingly took the chequered flag at the final race at his home track after battling back from 8th to vault to victory after a titanic battle with Cam Waters Mustang. The three-sprint race weekend was a very successful one for Van Gisbergen, who took Pole Position in both Race’s 28 and 29. Both wins helped an emotional Van Gisbergen to secure his third Jason Richards Memorial Trophy and equal McLaughlin’s race win record set in 2019.
Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, the 1:18 ZB V8 Supercars are exquisitely-crafted collectables with fine detail, high quality and perfectly replicated decals. The 1:18 version will also include a scale replica of the Peter Brock Bathurst trophy and Bathurst News winner’s poster! They will be produced to order and as with all Biante 1:18 scale limited edition models, these items will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and premium box packaging.
