About This Product: A fan favourite team with David Reynolds in the seat and Betty at the helm, Erebus Motorsport proved that it’s not always the ‘big’ teams who win the great race in 2017.
Partnered with co-driver Luke Youlden, David Reynolds was on the pace all weekend in his Penrite backed Holden VF Commodore with a shootout lap of 2:04.2746 helping him to start on the front row next to pole sitter Scott McLaughlin.
Come Sunday morning, the nations eyes were on Mount Panorama with the #9 Commodore amongst the front-runners all day despite poor weather and a very wet track. As the common saying goes though, you have to be in it to win it and both Reynolds and Youlden put on a measured and excellent display of wet weather driving to ensure they were there to capitalise during the last laps of the race when the opportunity presented itself.
It was an action packed finish to the race. With just 16 laps to the checkered flag, Reynolds sat fourth on the final restart and capitalised on other drivers errors to launch himself into into the top spot to take out the Peter Brock Trophy and mantel of being the 2017 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 winners - the first Bathurst 1000 victory for both drivers and the team along with the team’s first win since their switch to Holden in 2016.
Reynolds was obviously ecstatic with the victory and duly celebrated on the podium with a ‘shoey’ “It feels really, really good. As a team we have worked extremely hard over the last year and a half to get to this point, it’s been a massive whirlwind experience. I owe everything to Betty, Barry and Al, it’s not just Luke and I, there’s an entire team of talented people behind us. Since we rolled the car out on Thursday it has been fast. We didn’t have the best pace in the wet but as the track dried out we had heaps of grip out there and it all switched on.”
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.
For any other questions relating to Shipping, please visit our Quick Help / FAQ's section here.
Product images used on our website may be of a real car photo, model car photo, mock-up, render, illustration, prototype or production sample and are used for display purposes only.
Please be mindful that the vast majority of products available from us are produced in limited edition numbers and will only be available while stocks last which is why it is very important to pre-order at a stockist (or here online where possible - see above) or register your interest for future release models.
