Bathurst 12H 2017

I might be looking forward to this one even more than I was the Daytona 24.

12 hours of sports car racing on the Mount Panorama circuit in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia.

3-5 Feb ... that's this weekend.

55 cars entered. No prototypes, not even GTS cars. Top of the range is GT3. Here's the entry list: http://www.bathurst12hour.com.au/rac...rmation/entry/

One of the track's features is the 571ft elevation change. Here's a quick video made by some of the drivers during their track walk (today, I think) with a simple demo of how steep it is in places.

Fingers tightly crossed that there'll be a free live video feed available again this year. I'll post whatever I find.

This is one of my favorite races. No more V8 supercars I guess.

No, Supercars is still a thing. The season starts early March: http://www.supercars.com/calendar/

According to the Supercars schedule, they won't hit Bathurst until October.


Meanwhile, here's a reminder of what the track looks like at record-breaking speed in a GT car. This is the pole setting lap from last year.

Man what a place & what a drive! That downhill part has to be seriously pucker inducing.

Keep in mind, Sat in OZ is Fri in the US. This is why Practice 5, scheduled for Sat (see below), is live now.
