About This Product:
Dick Johnson Racing is without doubt one of the most iconic teams in Australian motorsport and at the Repco Bathurst 1000 in 2022, the team celebrates their 1000th championship race start.
In doing so, DJR becomes the first team in ATCC/Supercars history to achieve the incredible feat - and what better place to celebrate the milestone than at the famous Mount Panorama circuit, which holds such a significant place in the history of the team.
Officially established in 1980 and entered in their first Australian Touring Car Championship race at Symmons Plains in Tasmania in 1981 where Dick Johnson raced his legendary Tru-Blu XD Falcon, the team has remained a constant in Australia's main game of motorsport ever since.
In the hearts and minds of a legion of passionate fans, DJR are Australia's Ford team. They have raced a variety of iconic Falcons, Sierras and Mustangs with some of the the biggest names in motorsport behind the wheel, taking out 10 drivers' championships and a horde of race wins, pole positions and podium finishes along the way. And of course, 4 legendary Bathurst 1000 victories.
Authentic Collectables, in exclusive partnership with Dick Johnson Racing are incredibly proud to present this celebration Ford Mustang GT model commemorating the milestone.
Featuring a bespoke 1000 races livery, this model features a variety of nods to the team's past and present and simply looks incredible. From the gold wheels to the stunning blue and white colour scheme to various statistics and important dates incorporated into the design along with some other little surprises featured on and inside the model, this is a special fan collectable celebrating a tremendous milestone for the team.
The model design also acknowledges the long standing relationship Dick Johnson Racing has with Ford, having raced a Ford product in every single one of their 1000 championship races.
Don’t miss this 1:18 scale model which is scheduled to be produced by Authentic Collectables in high quality die-cast with detailed interior and fully opening parts in a numbered limited edition.
Adding to the value of this collectable will be a signed Certificate of Authenticity by legendary Supercars Hall of Fame driver and DJR founder Dick Johnson AM and Team Executive Chairman Dr. Ryan Story AM, the man who helped turn the team into the modern powerhouse it is today.
With the Certificate of Authenticity, a matching numbered A5 size mini print artwork by respected designer / illustrator Tristan Groves, who designed both the livery featured on this model and the modern interpretation of the real livery raced by DJR / Shell V-Power Racing Team at the 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000, will also be included with this model.

Register Your Interest For Model Cars Here On Our Website:
You can also register your interest for future model car releases online with us to be notified when they are released.
To do this you need to navigate to the product page of the specific model you're interested in.
Once you're on the model product page, please click on the black 'Register Your Interest' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen on each future release product page on our website, enter your email in the relevant section and submit the form.
When the model arrives in stock you will receive an advanced email notification from us letting you know that it is in stock with a link to complete and pay for your order while stock lasts.
Please ensure your email address is right before submitting the register your interest form. Unfortunately a confirmation email isn't sent when you register your interest for models on our website, the only time the system will email you about that specific model will be when it arrives in stock.
We offer this option due to the amount of time models generally take to produce (usually 6-18 months) so you're not out of pocket until the model actually arrives.
For Future Release Prints, Books + Other Products:
Depending on the type of product or brand, we also offer a paid pre-order option on our website.
If a product is available for paid pre-order on our website then you will be able to add it to your cart and purchase it like any normal in stock item.
Details about the pre-order will be listed at the top of the product description if it’s available and when we expect it to arrive in our warehouse.
A paid pre-order option will only ever be available on our website for products that aren’t models - we usually use this feature for prints, books and other non-model products.
We offer the paid pre-order option online with us for these products because we can predict production and shipping times more accurately and are usually much faster than the model cars to produce.
Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.
