Biante - 1/64 Ford GFX Falcon DJR Penske 2017
DJR Team Penske 2017 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000
(Podium Third Position)
#12 Drivers: Fabian Coulthard / Tony D’Alberto
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the DJR Team Penske #12 Ford FGX Falcon driven by Fabian Coulthard and Tony D’Alberto to third place at the 2017 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 in 1:18, 1:43, and 1:64 scales.
They may not have won the 2017 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, but third place on the podium after a long day in wet, trying conditions at Mount Panorama was still the perfect reward for Shell V-Power Racing Team drivers Fabian Coulthard and Tony D’Alberto.
The result gave the team its first Bathurst podium since Roger Penske’s buy-in of Dick Johnson’s famous Ford squad in late 2014 and its first trip to the most famous podium in Australia in 10 long years (since Steven Johnson and Will Davison in 2007).
The podium finish also came 12 years after Coulthard and D’Alberto had first teamed up at Bathurst in 2005 behind the wheel of the second Tasman Motorsport Commodore.
Back then they were rookies looking largely to keep out of trouble and learn the track, cars and competition, but in 2017 there were far bigger things on the line for the combination.
Given his championship rivals had bad days, the podium finish sent Kiwi Coulthard back into the lead of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
