The Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hours has been run and won and here is our first race gallery

The race in brief

A RECORD-BREAKING Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour endurance race has ended with AMG Mercedes Benz team Erebus Racing triumphing at Mount Panorama.

The soon-to-V8 Supercars team ‘international’ entry driven by Germans Alex Rollof, Thomas Jaeger and German Touring Car legend Bernd Schneider completed 268 laps (1665km) of Mount Panorama in a day that started off with record temperatures and ended in a torrential downpour.

The race was a traditionally dramatic affair and the margin of victory – just over one lap – belied just how competitive the race was.

The #36 Erebus entry led much of the last race and despite not being the fastest car across the weekend, outlasted, outplayed and outwitted their rivals in a commanding performance that gave Schneider his second consecutive major endurance victory of the year – having won the Dubai 24hr recently.

The result caps off a remarkable 18-month climb to the top of endurance racing for the Erebus outfit – the team having finished second in the same race twelve months ago.

Today’s race was interrupted by a record 16-safety car periods, started in fine sunshine and ended in pouring rain.
