About This Product:
There’s no doubt that the now very familiar, perhaps iconic, Shell V-Power livery raced by the team over the past five years looks fantastic but it was very refreshing to see a big change when the team unveiled a spectacular one-off indigenous livery on both their Ford Mustangs for the 2021 Darwin Triple Crown.
Dedicated to Racing Together, a programme designed to allow 12-to-18-year-old Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to pursue a career in motorsport as a driver or a member of a race team, the impressive livery was designed by Braedyn Cidoni, who is a Racing Together team member. Also, an aspiring driver for Racing Together, Cidoni’s design was inspired by Allison Millcock’s artwork. The result looked exceptional on the sides of the #11 and #17 Shell V-Power Mustangs.
Come race weekend, De Pasquale’s trip to the Top End had plenty of action. A magnificent qualifying performance put car 11 on Pole for Race 12 on Saturday, only to be rear-ended on the opening lap to see his race over as soon as it started. The young gun again qualified well for both Sunday races to start from P3, but some pitstop and racing errors ultimately cost the team more substantial results.
Nevertheless, car 11 was fast in Darwin, and the indigenous livery was received with tremendous respect and fanfare.
This 1:43 scale model is scheduled to be produced in sealed body die-cast with clear windows and a detailed interior and will be presented in a clear acrylic display case with a numbered backing board which acts as the Certificate of Authenticity.
With many fans sending us messages requesting this livery to be replicated in scale model form, it will be a popular addition to collections for fans of the Shell V-Power Racing Team.
