1:18 Ford Sierra RS500 1990 Australian Touring Car Championship Runner Up driven by Peter Brock diecast model car
Despite testing the loyalty of his legion of fans, Peter Brock’s move to race a Ford Sierra RS500 in 1989 was a good one. This was a controversial change for Brock but the simple fact was it was the only car capable of winning races at the time Brock and the Sierra achieved four podium finishes in the 1989 ATCC, including victory in the season finale at Oran Park in Sydney, finishing third overall in the series.

Brock’s split with Holden in 1987 was followed by a year in a BMW M3. While he enjoyed driving the diminutive German rocket, the car was not an outright contender. Major sponsor Mobil wanted their star running at the front of the field so Brock went shopping for an outright race contender for the 1989 season. The solution was the Mobil 1 Racing Ford Sierra RS500 and with it came an almost immediate improvement in race results. Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, highly detailed engine bay, racing interior, boot, undercarriage and beautiful exterior finishing, this is a model that shouldn’t be missed. It will form part of the Biante Peter Brock Collection and will be produced in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
