Classic Carlectables – 1/43 Scale – 888-22 Holden VF Commodore 2017 Sandown Retro Round Livery Craig Lowndes & Steven Richards #888 Diecast Model Replica
Craig Lowndes and Steven Richards once again competed with a Colin Bond retro livery at the 2017 Sandown 500 as they had done in the previous Sandown endurance race in 2016. While last year saw the team adopt Bond’s 1992 look, this year’s featured a mix of different design cues from the Bond era. GM Design Australia Exterior Manager, Peter Hughes, created an amalgamation of memorable designs: “We took all those historic cues and brought them together onto the VF Commodore to create a bespoke livery that is unmistakably 1980’s Caltex, but unique and original in its own way.” “The car looks really good again this year, it’s great to be able to get involved with the retro theme and pay tribute to such an historic era of our sport,” Lowndes said. “I think the white and black aspects of it set it apart from our Sandown car last year and I really like the way the recognisable features from Bondy’s cars have been recreated in this livery with some unique twists.”
“It’s still very Holden as well,” added Richards.
