The second race day gallery from the Bathurst 12 Hours



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

Lets hear from the winners

Erebus Motorsport has defeated the weather Gods, technical dramas and a Safety Car laden race to take an historic victory in the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour – Bernd Schneider, Thomas Jager and Alex Roloff surviving a chaotic final hour to take the win.

The pressure of the final stint was placed on the 32-year-old shoulders of Roloff. Not only did he have to survive a changeable track condition, the radio in the SLS AMG GT3 was not working.

Although he was over one lap up on the next vehicle, Roloff had to survive a spirited charge from the car following him. In yet another Bathurst classic, the young German was not aware of what weather conditions he would face upon approach to the top of the Mountain.

The pair of Erebus Motorsport SLS AMG GT3’s were dominant from the start of proceedings this morning and ran in the top five for most of the day. With three hours remaining, they were the only two cars on the lead lap.

Soon after the nine hour mark of the once around the clock epic, a storm that had been brewing for much of the afternoon descended. Within one lap, the top of the Mountain went from being slightly damp to absolutely drenched. With all drivers on slicks, they did a superb job to get around the Mountain to return to pitlane and fit new MICHELIN wet tyres.
