B43H22T - HOLDEN ZB COMMODORE - BJR - JONES/BOYS #96 - 2022 Bathurst 1000
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the 1:43 Holden ZB Commodore V8 Supercar of Brad Jones Racing. The exclusive replica model as raced by Macauley Jones and Jordan Boys in the Repco Bathurst 1000 of the 2022 V8 Supercars Championship.
The racing Gods must have been crying for the last Bathurst battle between Holden and Ford as the heavy rain bought a slippery track and aggressive driving early on caused pure carnage! The chaotic day was interrupted by rain delays and eight safety car periods but made for a nail-biting conclusion.
No one saw more carnage over the four days of Bathurst than the Wet & Forget car of Jones and Boys with the #96 car losing control and crashing in Practice 4 and then Jones was pushed into the fence by Van Gisbergen’s Red Bull car during qualifying on the same day! The BJR crew worked all night long to get the car repaired and ready to get back on the track just for the car to hit a wall at the end of Practice 6 and how the car was even able to make the starting grid at all was a mechanical miracle!
Heavy rain on Saturday led to the Top 10 Shootout to be cancelled, so grid positions were achieved from Friday’s qualifying times. After all the pre-race mayhem car #96 starting near the rear the grid but the bad luck wasn’t going to end there with the wet track causing Boys to get run-off on Lap 13 and Jones hitting the mud before the pit entry on lap 58! With all the problems the Jones/Boys ZB faced they were able to battle through all the turmoil and finish 13th in a very tough Bathurst.
Produced in sealed-body diecast, the 1:43 ZB V8 Supercars are exquisitely-crafted collectables with fine detail, high quality and perfectly replicated decals. They will be produced to order and as with all Biante 1:43 scale limited edition models, these items will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and premium box packaging.
