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.
