About This Product:
The 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000 featured 28 cars entered in the event making it the biggest grid seen for the Great Race since 2013.
Of those cars, 19 Holden ZB Commodores would feature - in what would be the final time Holden would race at the mountain in the 1000 - along with 9 Ford Mustang GTs. Of those cars, three wildcards were entered and a wet and wild weekend of racing ensued.
Such was the wild nature of the weather, the Top 10 Shootout had to be cancelled due to safety concerns. With rivers of water flowing down the mountain on late Saturday afternoon, it was the first time since its introduction in 1977 that the Shootout wasn't held. As a result, the top 10 starting positions were determined based on the previous days qualifying.
2017 Race winner David Reynolds paired up with ace driver Matt Campbell for the 2022 edition of the race, with their #26 Ford Mustang GT featuring yet another striking Penrite livery incorporating the Australian flag in similar fashion to years past for cars backed by the major oil partner.
Unfortunately though, the duo's day racing car #26 was very short-lived. Starting from 18th position on the grid, Campbell managed to avoid some first lap carnage only to collide at high speed with an out of control Zane Goddard on lap 5, wrecking the car and ending their day.
The car didn't look great after the accident, but the Aussie themed livery surely looked the goods and will make another fine collectable for fans.
Don’t miss this 1:18 scale model which is scheduled to be produced in high quality die-cast with detailed interior and fully opening parts in a limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
