Craft-Bamboo Racing will challenge Mount Panorama with a two-car assault next weekend with their Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT3’s, and now with the added strength of two strong partners, hopefully it will be enough to give the team the extra edge to get onto the top step of the podium.
AUTOart is a producer of precision scale model cars and car related lifestyle products. They are a company committed to producing the best quality die-cast models in the market place and accept no compromise on quality.
Said Jimmy Yee, President of AUTOart, “It is a proud day for AUTOart to join forces with Biante Model Cars to partner the two Craft-Bamboo Racing entries at Bathurst. We will produce both these Bathurst contenders in 1:18 scale for a limited edition release later in the year, so we wish them all the success on this great challenge.”
Biante Model Cars is a producer and distributor of scale model cars in Australia. The company is the exclusive representative of Autoart model cars in Australia since 1998 and they have strong history of working together. “Bathurst and Biante go hand in hand, but the Bathurst 12 Hour is not an event we have been involved with recently. To be able to partner with Craft-Bamboo Racing, along with Autoart, is an exciting extension of our existing Australian Motorsport programs,” said Biante General Manager, William Hall.
Commented Richard Coleman, CEO of Craft-Bamboo Racing, “We pride ourselves at Craft-Bamboo Racing to work with top level partners in our various programs. AUTOart and Biante Model Cars have a long history in their industry and are of no exception. We will give it our 100% in Bathurst to have success both on and off the track for our partners.”
In addition to the title partners, Craft-Bamboo Racing would like to thank POAD, Gravity, J2M, ECM, Michelin, and Kee Wah for the support in the event.
In car #97 will the trio of Alex MacDowall, Darryl O’Young, and Stefan Mucke, with car #99 driven by Frank Yu, Jean-Marc Merlin, and Jonathan Venter.
The Bathurst 12 Hours starts at 05.50 on Sunday 8 February.
