About This Product: Victory on the 42nd Tour de Corse for the 555 Subaru World Rally Team crew of Colin McRae and Nicky Grist reaped rich rewards and turned the FIA World Rally Championship leaderboard on its head.
Ten valuable points has catapulted McRae to the number one position in the Drivers' Championship and, in the all-important Manufacturers' Championship, Subaru took the lead by three points. The team's domination over the asphalt roads on Corsica was underlined by a fantastic double podium result with team-mates Piero Liatti and Fabrizia Pons finishing a fine third.
"This is brilliant result and puts us exactly where we want to be and Subaru back on course for their fourth consecutive World title," said Colin.
"Today has been tougher because the conditions have been much drier, but we were lucky to have established a good lead and didn't have to push like mad. Historically our Pirellis have been good here, especially in the wetter conditions, so I don't think we could have asked for more. We knew we'd be competitive in Corsica because the majority of our tarmac testing was done here and the win is even sweeter after our disappointments in Spain."
Model Car Releases:
Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Stockist:
If a model car is marked as a future release then please place a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible. To find your local Authentic Collectables stockists, please use the link in the main menu.
Reserve Model Cars Online With Us:
Alternatively, you can also reserve future model car releases online with us. Please click on the black 'Reserve This Product' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen and enter your email address. You will then receive an email from us when the product arrives and it will be reserved for 48 hours for you to purchase on a 'first in, best dressed' basis while stock is available.
We offer this free reservation option due to the amount of time models (usually 6-12 months) generally take to produce so you don’t have to pay us until the model arrives.
Books, Prints + Other Product Releases:
Depending on the type of product or brand, we do offer a paid pre-order option on our website and details about this will be listed at the top of the product description if it’s available and when we expect it to arrive in our warehouse. A paid pre-order option will only ever be available on our website for products that aren’t models - we usually use this feature for prints, books and other non-model products.
We offer the paid pre-order option online with us for these products because we can predict production and shipping times more accurately and are usually much faster than the model cars to produce.
Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.
