    40 exotic GT3 cars battle it out from car manufacturers Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, BMW, Bentley, McLaren, Nissan, Audi, and Mercedes Benz. Bathurst is one of those races where despite the length, crashes, caution periods, and varying pit strategies, more often than not, the split time between podium finishers is less than a second. So don't miss out!

    That Pole lap is not accurate, you have the two numbers in the seconds area around the wrong way....

    I said I would just glance at this but finding it being streamed LIVE on youtube which I can then watch via my console has had me glued since it essentially started. I think the Radio Le Mans commentator helps in keeping my attention too.

    I'll probably not watch it till the end though unless it looks like a real close fight for the win. :sootired:

    It usually is at Bathurst, it's essentially a 12 hour sprint race.

    Knew he had it in him, as long as they avoided any costly mistakes (that a safety car couldn't fix anyway). :smig:

    Respect to the Nissan driver for giving it everything at the end.

    Turned it off about 90mins from the end as the stream stopped but caught-up on that which I missed out on and that was a damn nice end to the race. Really was rooting for the McLaren to take it especially as it was in that colour :duck: but major props to the GT-R driver for thrashing the nuts and bolts trying to catch up. It did feel like the McLaren was taking it easier but 1 more lap and I think it would have been a different story!

    Glad to see that the Bathurst races are getting a more international broadcast too, as it's one of the legendary circuits that every racing fan wants to see now and again.

    Yeah, Shane had backed right off and was running in the 2:08's and not taking too many risks to get the car home in one piece.
