FACT:   The record race distance for the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 hour is 1,845km.    If you were in Europe, heading East from London you would cross the English Channel, pass through France, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic and end up not far from the Ukraine border, in far-Eastern Poland!   Think about it.”

THREE SUPPORT CATEGORIES  will compete alongside this coming weekend’s 12-hour sessions, with the Radical Australia Cup and Combined Sedans returning in 2018, while Group S Sports Cars make their debut.

And three drivers are flying the flag for the Street Car Racing Association of WA in the

 Bathurst 12hr Skye Sands Combined Sedans Support Category.

They’re all running classy Nissan Skylines – Paul Kluck in his #32 Total Vet Care 1992 R33, Denver Parker’s #35 Elec Power Technologies ’93 R33, and Shaun Mulquiney in the #78 SBM Financial Services ’95 R33.

Compatriot Glen Melling, meantime, will be giving his WASCC mates a serious run for their money in his Jasmat Steel Fabrications 6000cc Holden Commodore.    He’ll have the pedal to the metal, belting down the famous 1.916km Conrod Straight – quite likely on the tail of  Victorian Rusty French and the Ford Mustang TA2 600, pictured below. 

 

These guys are just five of the stellar field of 55 drivers ready to do battle over three 10  extreme laps around the 6.231km Mount Panorama, one of the most celebrated of the world’s race  circuits.    The line-up is impressive with top level Spaceframe and Chassis Sports Sedans up against genuine V8 Touring Cars of past eras.  

A Friendly rivalry

“Combined Sedans gives drivers of a number of different car classes the chance to race at the Mountain that they otherwise wouldn’t have, if the field was restricted to just one class type.    The competitors throughout the field battle with each other in their respective classes.     But taking home the outright victory is the goal for a number of the front runners.” 

Steven Lacey Joint Category Manager – #1 Chev Camaro.
