Back in 1981, history was made at Mount Panorama, when Dick Johnson famously went from zero to hero, but not before a massive pile up on the top of the mountain (right where the Biante name can be seen today). Ask Allan Moffat, and its the race that got away, as the little Mazda RX-7 was starting to catch the #17 Dick Johnson Falcon, but with the race declared on lap 120 the podium was cemented - Dick Johnson, from Bob Morris and the little RX-7 third.
On this day, 30 years ago since that amazing and controversial day on the Mount, we release our 1:43rd Scale 1981 James Hardie 1000 Triple Set.

Today we have released a number of new Sunstar products. There are a seven stunning models available from Aston Martins to Ford Mercury's, so be sure to check out our Models Just Arrived section from 12 noon WST. Four of the available selection are on the right.
One of the more eclectic models we have available for you from today is the 1960 Messerschmitt KR200. What is the Messerschmitt....
"After WWII ended Messerschmitt AG, the aircraft manufacture that built German fighter planes, faced rebuilding as well as many new restrictions on what it could produce. In the early 1950's it turned to manufacturing small vehicles in an attempt to stay afloat. The company began building these three wheeled two passenger bubble cars."

Well Bathurst 2011 is well and truly underway, and wow, hasn't the controversy started already! Dunlop have been caught a little bit short with their Wet tyre allocation and with the rain yesterday looking like it had defiantly set in for the weekend, teams went on a panic buy of the round black stuff. Practice three had to be cancelled due to the fog that descended on the mountain, but main teams had already decided to sit it out anyway. This morning, we the suns trying to come out, and the first session this morning saw everyone get a chance to run slicks, with Cam McConville in the HRT car setting the pace - the only man to get under a 2:10. From the sound of it, the second session is on track as I type, so stay tuned with the A drivers in the cars right now. Be sure to keep up with our twitter during the weekend to keep up with the the latest happenings from in and
