1:43 2003 HRT Sandown Winner.
We have been notified by Autoart that they have a few 1:43 models of the Mark Skaife - Todd Kelly HRT VY Sandown winner left over which were over runs from the actual production run.
As they are over run models, they do not have certificates. With all of the e-mails we have been receiving from collectors who missed out on this modelwhen it was released we have decided to offer these over run models to collectors who wish to add this item to their collection who as yet have not had the chance to do so.
The number is extremely low so the models will be sold on a first come first served basis.
These items are due be available on the 24th of this month. Please watch next weeks newsletter to be given a confirmed due date.

Guess The Production Quantities Competition.
While nobody managed to correctly guess the production quantities for the 1:43 scale Holden Racing Team 2004 Bathurst Twin Pack some came very close. The closest guess was 2184 which was sent through by Stewart Gear. Stewart was only 16 off the actual amount which is 2168 which is a pretty good effort. Congratulations Stewart. Please contact us to claim your prize.
