To cap off another thrilling Enduro season, Prodrive Racing is proud to unveil a new addition to its model car arsenal. The model of the #55 Supercheap Auto FG X piloted by Chaz Mostert and Steve Owen in the 2017 Sandown 500 is available for pre-order on the PRA Store.
You can order your Sandown retro model BY CLICKING HERE.
Pre-orders of the retro model end Thursday, 2 November. Both 1:18 and 1:43 scale models are available for pre-order. Delivery is scheduled for February 2018.
The classic retro livery pays tribute to the 1999 livery run by Jon Briggs in Supercheap Auto colours. The retro livery also celebrates Supercheap Auto’s 20th season of involvement in Supercars competition, which began in 1998. Mostert and Owen powered the #55 car to a third-place finish in this year’s Sandown event, which was Owen’s 98th career Supercars round. Ironically, Owen, who celebrates his 100th round this weekend at Gold Coast, competed against the original car in his first career race, the 1999 Bathurst 1000.
Bathurst retro merchandise remains available
In addition to the Sandown retro model, all polos, caps, and stubby holders sported at Bathurst by Mark Winterbottom and Dean Canto remain available for pre-order HERE through Sunday, 22 October. The model car in likeness to the FG X raced by Winterbottom and Canto is also available for pre-order HERE through 2 November. Donning the colours of the iconic 1-2 finish between Allan Moffat and Colin Bond at Bathurst in 1977, The Bottle-O and Prodrive Racing paid tribute to the 40th anniversary of the legendary moment with a special livery and gear inspired by those used at the Great Race in 1977. Bathurst retro gear orders are expected to be delivered in November, while The Bottle-O retro model car will be delivered in February 2018.
Please place your retro gear and model orders separate from each other. This will ensure your items are delivered in a timely manner.
Note: The sample models shown in the pictures were developed prior to the event and therefore there have some variances between them and the actual cars raced at Sandown and Bathurst. They are not final production specification. Checks and corrections have already been made to ensure the production models will accurately represent the cars raced.
