THE latest episode of the Motorfocus Model Podcast is the first in a series that looks back at the cars that have won the Bathurst 1000.

Every single car that won the Bathurst 500 and Bathurst 1000 has either been produced, is in transit or is slated for production in the flagship 1:18 scale by Biante Model Cars, Classic Carlectables, Apex Replicas or Authentic Collectables.

The podcast’s Secondhand Market segment will be devoted to these cars over the next few episodes; first up, hosts Aaron Noonan and Dimitri Comino from Motorfocus run through the releases of cars that won the race from its first running at Mount Panorama in 1963 through to the 1970 edition of the race.
