Biante Model Cars are very excited to present the 1:18 Scale Holden Racing Team VN SS Group A driven by Win Percy and Allan Grice to finish second in the 1991 Tooheys Bathurst 1000.

The defending winners of the Tooheys 1000, the Holden Racing Team continued with 1990 winning duo Win Percy and Allan Grice in the lead #16 VN Commodore with Neil Crompton and Brad Jones in car #7. The 1990 race taught the team to ‘never say never’ and Holden brought with it over 20 years of Bathurst experience and a brand-new car with the VN Group A Ð the last genuine Holden factory homologation race car. The #16 Percy/Grice Bathurst entry was in fact a brand new VN Commodore, the third built by the team in 1991, and had only undergone a short shakedown test at Calder in Melbourne before being packed up and transported north to Bathurst. The stage was set for a titanic battle.

As race week began the drivers of the new VN Group A learnt that the smaller rear spoiler Ð with less downforce - required more commitment going across the top of the Mountain. But speed wasn’t the issue for the Percy/Grice HRT car. The progress of the #16 Holden was plagued by engine problems. A consistent water leak was ultimately traced to a split bore, requiring an early engine change. But the replacement engine had a misfire. While the drivers persisted with it for Thursday and Friday the decision was taken to install the full race set-up - including the race engine - on Friday night. This meant the car would compete in the Top 10 Shootout in full race trim. With the misfire cured, Percy qualified the HRT VN ninth on the grid with a time of 2m17.732s

Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, highly detailed engine bay, boot, racing interior and a beautifully replicated livery, this is a must have limited edition collectable for Holden, HRT and Bathurst 1000 fans.
