This week Biante Model Cars are excited to release another eight of our Holden ZB Commodore Supercars from the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Season in 1:43 scale and two in 1:64.
The 2018 season saw the introduction of the first Gen 2 Supercars, which opened up the category to a wider variety of body shapes and engine configurations. The Championship saw the introduction of the hatchback Holden ZB Commodore, the first time since 1994 that a car other than a four-door sedan had competed.
The most successful team in the history of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship underwent a transformation for 2018 with some heavy-hitting names in world motorsport joining the Walkinshaw family in creating Walkinshaw Andretti United. Ryan Walkinshaw’s connection with Andretti Autosport and United Autosports brought together organisations with rich histories of success in a variety of motorsport categories, making for an exciting new chapter in the team’s history as it rolled out of a pair of new ZB Commodores. Scott Pye and James Courtney continued on as the regular drivers, with Warren Luff and Jack Perkins once again sharing the driving duties in the longer events.
Charlie Schwerkolt Racing (Lee Holdsworth) and Garry Rogers Motorsport (Garth Tander) also moved across to the ZB, with Jason Bright and Chris Pither joining the respective teams for the Sandown, Bathurst and Gold Coast races.
