THE 2020 season marks the 40th anniversary of Dick Johnson Racing and DJR Team Penske in Australian touring car racing.

The legend of Dick Johnson was born in 1980 after his collision with an errant rock while leading the Hardie-Ferodo 1000 at Bathurst in his Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD in one of the most famous moments in Australian motorsport history.

The collision wrote off his car, leaving the Queenslander devastated and facing financial ruin. This unbelievable moment, televised around the nation, saw a remarkable outpouring of emotion and financial support from the Australian public, which was matched by Ford and thus Dick Johnson Racing was born.

Johnson returned to Bathurst the next year in 1981 with a new Tru-Blu XD and repaid the public's faith by winning the Bathurst 1000 alongside co-driver John French, the first of Johnson's career and the rest, as they say, is history.

This officially licensed Tristan Groves-designed print measures a large 594 X 841mm. Printed on 250gsm matte paper stock, each copy will be individually numbered and signed by Dick Johnson and the artist.

Note: Artwork is subject to subtle changes before printing.
