Erebus have a pretty good driver line-up this year with the factory AMG guys coming to play. The SLS's are usually contenders all day so hopefully this can help them to stand on the top step.

looking forward to this year, esp with the v8 guys being allowed to race again. last time SVG was there in a mclaren he was super quick. interesting that he is back driving for Tekno.

be nice to see Aston Martin join the fray in future, but for now just have to be content with Nissan GTR, Lambo, Audi, Bentley, Mclaren, Ferrari, Merc and Porsche. whats not to like.

That's part of racing in this category.

Would this one do then?

bit of a shame that there is only 7 entrants to class b, and all of them porsche. not too disappointed though as they can tend to get in the way of the fast guys from time to time.

Get in the way or participate?

I actually enjoy the idea of different classes.

I agree, that used to be one of the appeals of Bathurst in the 60's 70's etc, all the differenct classes

Sorry Rob, your wrong on this one, Enduro's have always had varying Class's.
Thats its dna - LeMan for eg, thats what its all about.
As mentioned regards to our own Bathurst 500 oops I mean 1000, it lost part of its uniqueness/variety once the differing Class's were dropped.
Thats the test for the top flight drivers/teams - dealing with the slower traffic etcetc some great circumstances and then possibly some of those huge bad luck stories.
That was racing.

If Ford Performance were serious about making a name in this country, then the new GT or the Mustang would be a perfect fit in the 12hr. They would be shocked with the amount of Ford fans that would instantly follow.

Oh but wait, that's right, racing in Aus is not a good fit for their business model.

Oh yes, there is nothing to learn or develop from racing here lol....hello nascar does lol.
Not the point as you mention Tim, "branding", agreed, having a Mustang would be far more prospective customer engaging, countless of us would be right onto this as well, throwing in the GT in the top class would be a bonus, epic more so.

Supercars at Bathurst in the dark. What's not to like! I'm aware some people like to be able to relate to the cars on track but for me this is about as good as it gets.

Some drivers have traits that follow then around. Nick percat causes the first crash on lap 1, making contact with a Ferrari but apparently it wasn't his fault.

2.01.5 by SVG! Fastest race lap ever around the mountain.

racing was ok, some parts good. Crowd was bigger, but there was a lot of empty spaces
If the bathurst 1000 had 50,000 people there last year on the sunday, there would have been lucky to be 15,000 there today
But it will grow
