For a number of years in recent memory, the Sandown 500 became the ‘retro round’ of the Supercars Championship, where teams would celebrate the rich history of Australian motorsport with new takes on old liveries and more. It became a highlight of each season, one that sadly no longer exists as a wider category mandated initiative.
In 2016, Erebus Motorsport unveiled their Penrite backed retro racer for the Sandown round that was raced by David Reynolds and Craig Baird. It featured a really striking white, blue and red design which replaced their modern black and gold Penrite season colours. The livery paid homage to the Penrite branding seen during the 1950s to 1980s and in addition to celebrating retro round, the livery also acknowledged Penrite’s 90th Anniversary with a number change to #90, replacing the regular #9 seen on Reynolds car during the season.
In the first year of racing the Holden VF Commodore for the team, Erebus and Penrite delivered a really incredible retro livery, one that still holds its own today. It will be a welcome addition for collectors of retro models.
This 1:18 scale model is scheduled to be produced in die-cast with high detail and opening parts which include the bonnet and all four doors. It will come in an exclusive limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
