Our new release this week is the 1:18 Scale Preston Hire Racing / Walkinshaw Racing Holden VF Commodore driven by Lee Holdsworth and Sebastien Bourdais in last years Gold Coast 600. Sébastien Bourdais teamed up with Lee Holdsworth as the co-driver in car 18 for the 2015 season of endurance. One of the most successful drivers in Champ Car World Series history, along with stints in F1 and Indy Car, Bourdais certainly had the experience to be Holdsworth’s co-driver to race at a couple of Australia’s most famous races. After some discussion around the Biante office, we believe this is the first time we have produced a model of a car driven by someone who made their name in the international categories above. Either way, it certainly makes for a very unique collector’s piece.
Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts other than the boot, highly detailed interior, faithfully replicated engine bay, undercarriage and beautifully finished exterior livery, this is a model that collectors and wider V8 Supercar fans shouldn’t miss. It has been produced in a limited edition run of 504 pieces and includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity so don’t miss it when we make it available to purchase online from 12 Midday WST Tomorrow, Friday May 6.
