VIDEO: 2017 ICGT highlights

THE LIQUI-MOLY Bathurst 12 Hour features in an end-of-year video celebrating the 2017 Intercontinental GT Challenge. 

Bathurst was the opening round of the international GT3 series that features a series of challenging long-distance races, managed by the SRO Group.

After Bathurst, the series this year also included the iconic Spa 24 Hour enduro in Belgium and the brand-new Mazda Raceway California 8 Hour at Laguna Seca, in California.

The 2018 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour will again open the ICGT next year, with Spa the second round in the championship.

A new event, the Suzkua 10 Hours, will follow in late August with the Laguna Seca date returning in late October to complete the four-round tour.

Major teams including Bentley Motorsport and Strakka Racing have confirmed plans to contest the series next year.

Audi were crowned the 2017 Intercontinental GT Challenge winners thanks to winning two of the three rounds – Ferrari scoring the other thanks to their Bathurst victory this February.

Audi ace and 12-hour regular Markus Winkelhock won the drivers title.
