-- The world of racing faces a great loss with the announcement of Craig Lowndes retirement. The forty-five-year-
old racer had decided to call it quits from the racing scene in order to focus on his family and other interests. However, as a fan you don't have to say goodbye to him forever, in fact, if you are a true fan of number 888, then you can take a piece of him with you with you in the form of Craig Lowndes model cars from Car Models of Braidwood.
Lowndes was an Australian race car driver with a total of six hundred and seventy-two races under his belt with an impressive one hundred and nine wins. He has also won three series championships as well as many other impressive runs.
To pay homage to him, there is now a diecast model of the car he drove in his final race. This model stands at a 1:43 scale and is meticulously detailed with his Autobarn detailed on the side and his signature golden yellow and black colouring.
For racing collectors this is going to be a great addition to your collection. With this being his final race there will be no more chances to see him race or experience the joy of his career. The model will be the last ever produced for this racer and needs to be seriously considered for your collection.
