Scott McLaughlin Shell V-Power Racing Team Ford FGX Falcon – 2018 Virgin Australia Supercar Championship Winner
After a heart-breaking finish to the 2017 Supercars Championship Season which saw him narrowly miss winning the championship, 2018 proved to be the year of redemption for young kiwi superstar Scott McLaughlin and DJR Team Penske Shell V Power Racing Team.
The team’s mantra going into 2018 was ‘unfinished business’ and after a titanic battle with rivals Red Bull Holden Racing Team all year, business was ultimately concluded with McLaughlin taking out 9 race wins, 21 podiums and 13 pole positions on his way to claiming 3944 points, beating Shane van Gisbergen to the championship win by 71 points.
Dressed in the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 livery, don’t miss McLaughlin’s 2018 Championship 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. This model will be produced in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and a scale replica of the championship trophy will also be included.
