Garry Rogers Motorsport - Newcastle 2019

As we are all well aware, the end of the 2019 Supercar season saw the closing of the V8 Supercar chapter for Garry Rogers Motorsport. Long beloved by fans and considered one of the most entertaining teams in pitlane a shift in sponsors plus the team’s growing involvement in S5000 and TCR saw the Newcastle round as the final race for GRM’s ZB Commodore’s. With this in mind, we, along with the team, have decided that the Newcastle round cars should be produced in model form (not the previously announced early season liveries) due to their increased significance.

With this change in mind, we have cancelled the following items and have requested new orders to be placed for the new announcements above. We are not able to transfer existing orders across to the new item numbers. Please note that only 1:18 and 1:43 scale models will be produced, there will be no 1:64.

1:64 2019 V8 Supercar Cancellations
 
Unfortunately, we also have to announce the cancellations of the rest of our 2019 Holden ZB Commodore Supercar announcements. Total order quantities we received for these items were well short of the MOQ and after investigating all production options with our factory we have had to make the unfortunate decision to formally cancel the following items. We fully understand how disappointing cancellations are for our customers, and we apologise to our 1:64 collectors. We don’t take these decisions lightly and we tried several different options to try and make these items viable but, in this instance, we have no other option but to cancel production.
