Dick Johnson Racing 1000 Championship Races Collector Medallion
Dick Johnson Racing is without doubt one of the most iconic teams in Australian motorsport and at the Repco Bathurst 1000 in 2022, the team celebrates their 1000th championship race start. In doing so, DJR becomes the first team in ATCC/Supercars history to achieve the incredible feat – and what better place to celebrate the milestone than at the famous Mount Panorama circuit, which holds such a significant place in the history of the team.
Officially established in 1980 and entered in their first Australian Touring Car Championship race at Symmons Plains in Tasmania in 1981 where Dick Johnson raced his legendary Tru-Blu XD Falcon, the team has remained a constant in Australia’s main game of motorsport ever since. In the hearts and minds of a legion of passionate fans, DJR are Australia’s Ford team. They have raced a variety of iconic Falcons, Sierras and Mustangs with some of the the biggest names in motorsport behind the wheel, taking out 10 drivers’ championships and a horde of race wins, pole positions and podium finishes along the way. And of course, 4 legendary Bathurst 1000 victories.
Authentic Collectables, in exclusive partnership with Dick Johnson Racing are excited to present this beautifully designed collectors medallion.
This two sided gold plated metal medallion celebrates the 1st and 1000th championship races and cars for the team. Dick Johnson’s iconic Tru-Blu XD Falcon on one side and the incredible Shell V-Power Ford Mustang GT’s being driven by Anton De Pasquale / Tony D’Alberto and Will Davison / Alex Davison at the 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000 are featured on the other.
Measuring a large 100mm in diameter and 4mm thick, the medallion comes presented in a clear acrylic display stand which not only protects the medallion from dust and scratches, but also acts as the perfect way to display this collectors item.
It will be produced in an exclusive limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
