Dick Johnson Racing #17 Ford Mustang GT 500 Rounds Celebration Livery Designed By Tristan Groves

At the 2023 Adelaide 500, Dick Johnson Racing became the first team to reach 500 Championship Rounds in ATCC / Supercars history.
A racer at heart, DJR started from humble beginnings in the wake of the now infamous rock incident at Bathurst in 1980 which is now part of Australian motorsport folklore.
With a newly built Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD, Dick Johnson rolled up to the first round of the 1981 Australian Touring Car Championship at Symmons Plains in what would be DJR’s first official appearance as a team. He won that round and then a few more, including the season ending Lakeside round to seal the championship against his great rival Peter Brock – a pretty handy debut season for the team which also included a Bathurst 1000 win.
Fast forward over 40 years and the iconic Ford team has grown from a backyard operation into one of the oldest and most revered professional motorsport teams in the country with 10 drivers titles, 3 teams championships, 4 Bathurst 1000 wins, 148 race wins, 314 podiums and 154 pole positions.
Both Dick Johnson and his team are legends in motorsport.
To celebrate the 500 rounds milestone, designer Tristan Groves has created this very special model for fans of Dick Johnson Racing which combines characteristics reminiscent of the iconic 1981 Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD applied to the 2023 Gen3 Mustang GT Supercar which the team races currently. It’s an awesome combination of both old and new.

• Die-cast model.
• Opening parts including the bonnet, driver and passenger doors.
• Detailed racing cockpit, engine bay, and Gen3 undercarriage.
• Molded clear glasshouse.
• Comprised of roughly 204 individual metal and plastic parts.
• Anywhere between 100-200 steps in paint and decoration finishing.
• Limited edition. Comes with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity, signed
by Dick Johnson AM, presented in an Authentic Collectables branded protective folder.
