Biante we be donated part of the proceeds of this model to the RSL’s ANZAC appeal
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to finally announce the 1:43 Scale Holden Racing Team VF Commodore V8 Supercar driven by Garth Tander at the 2015 Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint featuring the special ANZAC Appeal livery.
After being introduced in the 2013 season, Holden Racing Team’s ANZAC tribute has become an annual initiative by Holden and HRT. It is supported by the Returned & Services League, with the livery raising awareness and funds for the RSL’s annual ANZAC Appeal. The 2015 version saw Holden’s famous HRT lion and driver logo again replaced by the RSL’s ANZAC Appeal Rising Sun logo, with a silhouette of ANZAC diggers from the original Gallipoli landing featuring on each side of the car and bonnet. The ANZAC Appeal logo was also featured on the boot lid, with “ANZAC Centenary, April 25, 2015″ featuring above the front windscreen and on the rear wing.
When the livery was announced in 2015 Tander said he is passionate about ANZAC
Day and the RSL’s appeal because of family ties. ‘ANZAC Day
is a very special day in my family because my grandfather
served overseas in the Army, so when you say ‘ANZAC’, the
first thing I think about is respect,” Tander said. “The ANZAC spirit epitomises what Australia is all about; going out of your way for a mate, doing the hard work, and doing it properly, and working together
– and now as a parent I’m making sure my kids hear the full ANZAC story and what it means. To me, it’s
special to be able to carry the ANZAC Rising Sun, and even
more so this year with the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings.”
Given the national significance of the day and the wide support for the annual initiative by Holden and HRT, the 2015 ANZAC Appeal livery has been one of the most highly requested models from collector’s for Biante to produce for quite some time. We’re very pleased that we have been able to gain approval to produce it and in staying true to the purpose of the ANZAC livery each year, part proceeds of the sale of this model will be donated to the RSL’s ANZAC Appeal.
This 1:43 Scale replica of Tander’s 2015 Holden Racing Team ANZAC Appeal Commodore will be produced in die-cast with clear windows, highly detailed racing interior and faithfully replicated livery. It will come presented in a clear acrylic display case with a stamped base plate and will be produced in an exclusive limited edition quantity with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Once produced, this model will complete the 1:43 Scale set of various liveries raced by the Holden Racing Team during the 2015 season to celebrate their 25th Anniversary and it’s fair to say that we have left the most important livery until last. It’s one that shouldn’t be missed.
