2005 Biante Model Cars Historic Touring Car Series.
For the 2005 Historic Touring Car Series Biante will be offering something a little bit different in the way of trophies for the round winners. The trophies will be Biante Classics models which will be specially decorated for each event. The overall winner will be presented with two models, one Holden and one Ford. The driver will then choose which one to keep and the other model will be placed on the Biante Auction site. All funds generated by these models will be then given back to the series to help run these fabulous old cars. There will be 12 cars in total (6 rounds, 2 cars per round) and all cars will be different. Only 6 of the cars will be offered to the public which will make these items very collectable. These Historic Touring Cars are run and paid for by the drivers themselves so if Biante are able to help channel some funds back into the series to assist these drivers put on the great show that they do, we know it will be well worth it.
