The 2017 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour is set to be the most competitive yet, with a field of more than 60 cars comprised of 15 brands making up a world-class field of exotic GT vehicles.
International teams and drivers will compete against Australia’s best, including local stars of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship including Craig Lowndes, Shane van Gisbergen, Jamie Whincup and Mark Winterbottom.
Supercars ace Garth Tander joined Sunrise this morning to help preview the event, confirming his participation as part of a strong factory-supported attack from Audi on the race.
“We are looking forward to once again be heading to the Mountain for this great event. It promises to be a great race. We have the best drivers in awesome cars on what is one of the world’s most challenging circuits. It will be a great day,” said Saul Shtein, Head of Sport for Seven.
