Authentic Collectables are excited to announce a new book project being published by V8 Sleuth’s award winning author Aaron Noonan and Will Dale covering 40 years of cars raced by Dick Johnson Racing / DJR Team Penske.
With nearly 50 cars profiled, the book follows on from the sold-out publication by the same production house documenting the history of every Holden Racing Team race car.
This book will feature all of the iconic Johnson team cars starting with the Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD that Johnson drove at Bathurst in 1980, infamously colliding with a rock that had spilled out onto the circuit.
It features the famous Greens-Tuf Falcons and Mustangs, turbocharged Shell Sierras and Falcons as well as the current-day Shell V-Power Ford Mustang Supercars run by DJR Team Penske - and every car in between!
The team’s Bathurst and Championship-winning cars are included, each car’s racing history presented in a stunning layout along with a special focus placed on each car’s performances at ‘The Great Race’ at Bathurst.
A wide range of never-before-published photos will feature in this book packed with rare content.
This 400 page (estimated) hardcover book will be produced in an exclusive limited edition print run and each copy will come with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by Dick Johnson making it not only an official historic resource but a truly special collectable item.
Currently scheduled to arrive in January 2020 (to ensure the full 2019 season and its cars are included), this book can’t be missed.
It is now available to pre-order online here or please enquire at your local stockist.
