Bathurst 12 Hour: Robin Frijns – ‘this is the most unexpected win’


12 hour races, particularly the Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hours throw up crazy races and this year’s race was no different. While we weren’t treated to the grandstand finishes of past years, it was a crazy race.

Robin Frijns and the WRT Audi squad were playing the fuel card – it would have been tight but the team of Frijns, Dries Vanthoor and Stuart Leonard had raced well and played a great tactical game to hit the front when they needed to be.

They fought back from almost a lap down to put themselves in the prime position coming into the final minutes of the race. They are an experienced team and driver lineup and this win must rate highly for them.

In this interview Frijns talks about the weekend, the help from the teammates and the win – which he calls
“…the most unexpected win”
