New Stuff From Top Gear (Trax) & Biante
Top Gear’s July product brochure

Biante V8 Supercars
A number of 1:43 scale Supercars became available this week of cars they’ve previously released in 1:18th. This includes 2015 Townsville 400 ‘Peter Brock Tribute Livery’ cars of Tander & Courtney; VIP Petfoods (Gizzy, 2014 Bathurst pole); Percat/Gavin (3rd Bathurst 2014) and a plain body ‘prototype’ VF.
