Official B12hr Programme launched

THE OFFICIAL event guide to the 2019 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour will provide an in-depth look inside Australia’s International Endurance race. 

The magazine is being produced for the first time by Motoring Media Network, publishers of evo Australia and F1 Racing Magazines.

The high-quality, glossy publication will detail many aspects about the race, as well as delving inside the cars and stars that make the show possible in the first place.

“We are massive fans of the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour here at Motoring Media Network and have loved watching the event grow in popularity every year. To be involved with producing the official programme has been a real privilege,” said Motoring Media Networks’s Matthew O’Malley.

“As Motoring Media Network is the publisher of evo Australia and F1 Racing magazines, we feel we are well placed to produce a programme that suits the prestigious nature of this internationally renowned event.”

“I spend a lot of time in Europe and you would be surprised at how well known and highly regarded a race it is on an international level. Make no mistake, the Bathurst 12 Hour is a prestigious event. When you talk to international drivers, they all rate it up there with the Nürburgring 24 Hour as a race they want to win.”

The 2019 magazine will be available at the circuit across the four days of the January 31 – February 3 event this year.

“With this year’s official programme, we have taken the production levels up a notch,” O’Malley explained.

“We have placed a lot of focus on the close relationship between GT3 cars and the road cars on which they are based, and the reasons why so many manufacturers use GT3 as a sales tool. We also have a feature on ‘How to win Bathurst’ with Roland Dane and evo Australia’s editor (and the editor of the Bathurst 12 Hour Programme) Jesse Taylor, takes an Audi R8 LMS GT3 car for a test drive at Phillip Island as part of Audi’s customer racing experience. We also get up close and personal with the Mercedes-AMG GT4 race car and profile the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Safety Car.”
