It’s being billed by the team as the “first and only time” the trio will share a race track.

Monday will also act as a hand-over day for the DJR Mustang purchased by Michael Anderson for his team’s Repco Bathurst 1000 wildcard entry.

The five-time Australian Touring Car Champion retired from full-time driving at the end of 1999, handing the keys of his #17 Shell Falcon to son Steven.

‘Junior’ Johnson raced full-time for DJR until the completion of the 2012 season and has spent recent years driving Team Johnson-prepared Touring Car Masters cars.

Jett meanwhile is this year embarking on his first season of national car racing in Trans Am with Team Johnson and will be in action this weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Steven’s ‘Tru-Blu’ XD Falcon will though be absent from the TCM races due to a funding shortfall.
