Resin Sealed body model.
Preorders close 18th November.
Ian ‘Pete’ Geoghegan’s victory in the 1968 Australian Touring Car Championship marked the end of an era given it was the last time in history that the title of Australian Touring Car Champion was decided by a single race, rather than a series of races.
The victory also gave Geoghegan his third consecutive ATCC crown, having won the 1966 title at Bathurst and the 1967 championship at Lakeside, his first in the Ford Mustang that ultimately took him to three title wins in a row covering ’67, ’68 and 1969.
The 1968 ATCC was decided by a single 34 lap race around the Warwick Farm circuit in Sydney on September 8, 1968 and Geoghegan established himself as the man to beat by setting pole position, his 1m42.8s lap six-tenths faster than the Chevrolet Camaro of 1965 champion Norm Beechey.
The duo was joined on the front row of the unique three-wide front row of the grid by Bob Jane’s Mustang with a total of seven Mustangs in the 30-car field.
But there was only one Mustang to beat and that was Geoghegan’s.
He bolted straight into the lead at the start with his rivals unable to slow him down. Jane’s engine ended up going on lap nine and three laps later Beechey coasted to a halt, also with engine issues.
That left Geoghegan unchallenged and he went on his way, his trouble-free race taking him to his fourth Australian Touring Car Championship victory.
At the end of the 123-kilometre race he crossed the line 1m31-seconds in front of the Morris Cooper S of local New South Wales driver Darrell King with the Porsche 911S of Alan Hamilton the only other car on the lead lap in third place.
Geoghegan had led all 34 of the laps in the race and set the fastest lap of 1m43.0s, setting a pace good enough to win but with plenty in reserve had he been challenged.
Proof of that came in a support race later in the day where he broke Beechey’s touring car lap record and set a 1m40.7s lap!
Geoghegan would go on to win the 1969 championship – again at the wheel of the same Mustang that he’d taken to victory in 1967 and 1968 – and became the first five-time Australian Touring Car Champion in history in doing so.
He was inducted into the Supercars Hall of Fame in 1999 and passed away in November 2003.
A powerhouse when it came to the 1000-kilometre Supercars race, Roland Dane’s squad didn’t have to look far to fill the three slots in its driving roster.
Shane van Gisbergen, Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes had amassed between them 11 Bathurst 1000 wins, 11 Supercars Championships, and four Bathurst 12 Hour wins. To top it off, former team sponsor Vodafone came on board as primary sponsor of the #888 Mercedes AMG GT3, run in conjunction with Australian GT squad Scott Taylor Motorsport.
Produced in resin by Spark, the attention to detail will be of their usual excellent standard with stunning detailing and paintwork. These models should not be missed.
They will be an exclusive limited edition number of 548 and will be available for only a short period once released.
Due to a tight signing availability, preorders close Thursday 31st October so place your preorders now and please include a phone number.
Authentic Collectables would like to announce a new limited edition print from the team at V8 Sleuth that is now available to pre-order.
Legendary Supercars icon Craig Lowndes reaches an incredible milestone with Triple Eight Race Engineering at the 2019 Sandown 500.
The multiple Bathurst 1000 and championship winner will become the first driver in Supercars history to make 200 championship round starts with a single team.
In honour of the 200 round milestone, V8 Sleuth is proud to release a limited edition collector’s print celebrating Lowndes’ career-defining period with a team that has dominated the sport for much of the past two decades.
The mammoth print – measuring 1 metre wide – is endorsed by both Lowndes and Triple Eight and features spectacular imagery from across his 15 years with the team, including his six Mount Panorama triumphs with the team as well as every regular season and one-off livery his #888 car has carried.
The print measures 1000mm X 590mm printed on 250gsm matte paper using offset print technology, with a Pantone gold metallic ink used to give this print an extra special finish. Only a limited edition run of these prints will be produced, with each to be individually numbered and signed by Lowndes himself.
This is an amazing collector’s print for Craig Lowndes fans as he celebrates a major milestone with the team he is synonymous with.
