1:18 HOLDEN ZB COMMODORE - RED BULL AMPOL RACING - SHANE VAN GISBERGEN #97 - Bunnings Trade Perth Supernight Race 10 - 600th Holden Race Win - Winner
Biante Model Cars are pleased to present the 1:18 Holden ZB Commodore V8 Supercar of Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Red Bull Ampol Racing. Shane raced the exclusive replica model van Gisbergen to win in Race 10 of the Bunning Trade Perth Super night in the 2022 V8 Supercars Championship.
The special victory brought up a Holden’s 600th Australia Touring Car Championship and Supercar Series race wins – the first manufacturer to achieve this record over the 62 years of ATCC/V8 Motorsport racing in Australia. Holden’s first win took place in 1969, as Norm Beechey took the victory at Surfer’s Paradise in a HK Monaro GTS 327 - it took 27 years to achieve one hundred race wins when Craig Lowndes won at Tasmania in a VR Commodore in 1996.
Van Gisbergen was there to take out win five hundred at the same Symmons Plains circuit 20 years later and then also win race number 550 at Townsville in 2019! The defending V8 Champion achieved the record win six hundred in style, with van Gisbergen chasing down Anton De Pasquale in his Ford Mustang to an exploding firework display under lights at Barbagallo Raceway, Wanneroo – his first ever victory in Perth!
Holden’s long and proud heritage in Australia both on the road and the racetrack makes this a truly remarkable accomplishment. With the now retired Holden brand being replaced by the Chevrolet Camaro for the 2023 V8 Supercar season, this is a special race-winning Holden.
Produced in diecast with fully opening parts, the 1:18 ZB V8 Supercars are exquisitely crafted collectables with fine detail, high quality, and perfectly replicated decals. 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.
