Leader of the pack

1996 Pack Leader EF Fal­con

Pack Leader Rac­ing was the start of a long line of Su­per­cars (and V8 Su­per­cars) teams and his­tory. Alan Jones re­cruited Ross and Jim Stone from Dick John­son Rac­ing and nabbed the Phillip Mor­ris money from Glenn Se­ton, for whom team owner Alan Jones had driven. While they couldn’t ad­ver­tise cig­a­rettes any more, it was pretty ob­vi­ous that the colour scheme re­ferred to Peter Jack­son, as did the style of the ini­tials of ‘Pack Leader’. Jones and team­mate Paul Romano made progress through 1996, enough that Jones got him­self a good lead in the Bathurst 1000 and was pulling away be­fore the car burst into flames (where there’s smoke, there’s fire, as they say). Any­way, the Apex Repli­cas 1:18 scale Fal­con looks sen­sa­tional. All the doors open, as do the boot and bon­net. The level of de­tail is as­ton­ish­ing, in­clud­ing the two ex­tin­guish­ers in the cabin, the Motec dash and fuel sys­tem plumb­ing in the boot. You can pre-or­der now at www.apexrepli­cas.com.au
