Celebrating 1000 ATCC/Supercars Championship Race Starts for Dick Johnson Racing

This is a 1:12 scale model Ford Mustang GT featuring a very special livery celebrating the 1000th Race Start in the ATCC/Supercars Championship for Dick Johnson Racing.

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.

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.

The 1:12 scale model is scheduled to be produced in high quality sealed body resin with clear windows and detailed interior in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by Dick Johnson AM and Dr. Ryan Story AM.
