Mark Winterbottom / Steve Owen Prodrive Racing Australia #5 Pepsi Max Crew Ford FGX Falcon Supercar – 2015 Wilson Security Sandown 500 Winner
Collectors Club Price: $237.50
The 2015 Sandown 500 was held right in the midst of a very strong period on track for Prodrive Racing Australia, known now as Tickford Racing. Mark Winterbottom and Chaz Mostert were both in contention for the championship that year (which was ultimately won by Winterbottom) and their performances at Sandown with their co-drivers, Steve Owen partnering Winterbottom and eventual Dunlop Super 2 Series Champion Cam Waters, partnering Mostert, were simply outstanding.
Both the Winterbottom/Owen and Mostert/Waters cars qualified strongly for the 500 to start from 2nd and 3rd on the grid respectively behind pole sitter Jamie Whincup and co-driver Paul Dumbrell. Come race day, the Red Bull Racing VF Commodore led for much of the day until a tyre puncture opened up the door for both PRA cars to claim the top two steps of the podium in a memorable 1-2 finish for the team. It was one of five 1-2 finishes the team enjoyed in 2015 highlighting their incredible success that year.
Don’t miss this Sandown 500 winner in 1:18 scale which is scheduled to be produced by Authentic Collectables in high quality die-cast with detailed interior, opening bonnet and all four doors along with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
