FORD FALCON FGX
V8 SUPERCAR COTF
DJR TEAM PENSKE / PIRTEK
#17 DRIVER: SCOTT PYE
2016 WD-40 PHILLIP ISLAND SUPERSPRINT
LIMITED EDITION OF 456 PIECES
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the 1:43 Scale DJR Team Penske Pirtek Ford Falcon FGX driven by Scott Pye at the 2016 WD-40 Phillip Island SuperSprint.
As part of their rolling primary sponsor strategy for the 2016 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, DJR Team Penske announced the exceptional Pirtek liveries that would be run at the Phillip Island SuperSprint by both drivers. This marked the first time Pirtek had been the major sponsor on a V8 Supercar for 10 years, stoking the memories of iconic Pirtek liveries seen during the Stone Brothers Racing Championship era.
It was a mixed weekend for the DJRTP Pirtek #17 Falcon at Phillip Island. A popped tyre at turn 1 in race 6 sent Pye off into the grass in a hair raising moment which resulted in a 26th place finish but the team and driver pulled things together to come home with a podium in race 7.
This model will be produced in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, it's one that shouldn't be missed by DJR Team Penske, Scott Pye and Ford fans alike.
