About This Product: The Sandown 500 ‘Retro Round’ has fast become one of the most popular racing events in the Supercars Championship with teams and personalities up and down pit lane celebrating motorsport history in a range of ways. Erebus Penrite Racing have been one of the teams at the pointy end of joining these celebrations and adopting awesome retro themed liveries for their race cars and 2017 was no exception.
The #9 Holden VF Commodore traded in its familiar black and yellow colours for a red, white and blue livery which served as a tribute to Peter and Phil Brock winning the 1976 Sandown event in a Holden L34 Torana. The win marked Brock’s third Sandown enduro win and the second in a streak of seven that ran from 1975 to 1981.
“Pete and Sandown just had something with each other and if he finished he won; that year we won by two laps and it really shocked a lot of people, it was pretty special,” Phil Brock said. “Personally, I had not driven with my brother before and when he went out by himself that year he asked if I would drive with him in the endurance races which I was very happy to do. Pete really wanted to do his own thing so he started up Team Brock, and being Aussie’s the natural thing was the Australian flag, hence the car being red, white and blue.”
With an impressive livery locked away and Luke Youlden joining David Reynolds as Co-driver for Sandown and the endurance season, Erebus started the weekend really well with milestone results for the team that couldn’t actually be counted as milestones! Reynolds topped Saturday morning’s qualifying session, the first time he has done so with Erebus, which switched to Holdens when he joined in 2016. Then Co-driver Luke Youlden converted that pole position into victory in the opening ARMOR ALL Race for the Grid, also the first time an Erebus Holden has greeted the chequered flag first in a race. However, the unusual Sandown qualifying format meant that neither results would enter the record books on that basis, with the pair starting third on Sunday due to Reynolds’ finish in the second sprint behind Cameron Waters and Scott McLaughlin.
Despite the strong Saturday performances, unfortunately the 2017 chapter of the Sandown 500 would see Erebus finish in 17th position. However, history will show that Sandown was a great warm up for the team leading into the Bathurst 1000 and the retro livery was an absolute standout.
For Future Release Model Cars:
We have A LOT of future release model cars listed on this website and it's not uncommon for these items to take anywhere between 6-18 months to arrive.
If you're interested in ordering/buying these models then you have two options available to you:
Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Local Stockist:
If a model car is marked as a future release on our website then please enquire about placing a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible.
Please note, all stockists are seperate businesses to Authentic Collectables, we are suppliers to them. Each stockist has different ways of how they accept pre-orders for future release models.
To find your local Authentic Collectables stockist, please click here.
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.
For All In Stock Products:
If a product is in stock then it should now be available at your local Authentic Collectables stockist or you can shop online directly with us and it will usually be shipped on the next business day unless otherwise stated or it's a holiday period.
Yes we ship internationally.
Shipping rates are calculated during the checkout process based on what you're ordering and where you're shipping it to. Add the items you want to your cart, and go through the checkout process to view the rates. You can see the shipping rates prior to final payment for the order.
