Bathurst 12 Hour 2013

Post by Dazza4610 on Thu Jan 24, 2013 11:59 am

Thought I would start up some discussion around the Bathurst 12 hour this year...




Uploaded on Mar 4, 2011

Warren Luff (Wazza) gives you an exclusive look at some of the best parts of the Mt Panorama Circuit first hand, gear change points as well as braking points in the V8 Supercar and Audi R8. Team Joest finished the 2011 Bathurst 12 Hour 1-2 after 1814Km's and 294 laps

Great work Dazz.
It's only a couple of weeks until I'm back at the mountain and I can't wait.
This year is shaping up to be a fantaistic race with over 50 cars including 18 outright cars Very Happy
There is some great international teams aswell including Phoenix Racing who are one of the top DTM teams, AF Corse who are the top Ferrari GT team that won the GTE PRO class at Le Mans last year and Engstler Motorsport who are a WTCC team with great experience in endurance races.
Some of the drivers in this years race include Mika Salo, Allan Simonsen, John Bowe, Christopher Mies, Craig Baird,
Matt Griffin, Craig Lowndes, Warren Luff, Alex and James Davison, Jason Bright, Andy Jones, David Wall and Shane Van Gisbergen.

A host of V8 Supercar Championship stars from Brad Jones Racing will join a factory-supported Peugeot team at the 2013 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

Peugeot Australia has entered two factory RCZ Cup models in the Invitational class, with V8 Supercar stars Jason Bright, Andrew Jones and David Wall set to be split across the two cars.

Bright will team with French drivers Stephane Caillet and Julian Ruefen, whilst Jones and Wall will partner with experienced Sportscar ace Bruce Jouanny in the second car. The 2013 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour will be held at Mount Panorama across the February 8-10 weekend.

“I am excited to be running with the Peugeot factory team, especially at Bathurst,” Wilson Security Racing-backed driver David Wall said.

“I’ve raced there plenty of times in different vehicles, including V8’s, Porsches and a Mitsubishi Evo Lancer, and I’ll be there with my BJR team mates Jason Bright and Andy Jones, along with the three international drivers.

“I think we should be fairly strong and I am really looking forward to it.”

Peugeot Australia Managing Director Bill Gillespie said the brands’ participation in the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour was a major part of their 2013 plans.

“Our capacity in the race has three aspects,” he explained.

“One is that we are launching the new RCZ in May. The 12 Hour is the first time that we will see the car in its updated format and this is an entree’ to the launch in May.

“We also want to re-introduce the RCZs performance credentials, and show the car has serious intentions. Our participation will also help show a more masculine approach to our brand and position.

“We are very happy with the driver line-up. We wanted to secure three drivers from one team with a view to utilising them down the road with our activities. We spoke to Brad Jones at Homebush last December and he was very accommodating.

“Getting Jason is a real highlight. He is a Bathurst 1000 and 24 hour winner and highly regarded in the sport. The French drivers are all very well credentialed and we think it’s a great team.”

French driver Jouanny has three LeMans 24 hour starts to his credit including a best finish of 8th, in 2009. Prior to racing Sportscars, the 34-year-old had an extensive open wheel career in Formula 3 and World Series Renault.

Stephane Caillet, also from France, has been a member of the RCZ racing program for several years and set a new lap record for electrically-powered vehicles at the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife in 2011, driving a Peugeot EX1 around the 22-km circuit in just over nine minutes.

The 2013 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour will be streamed live on the internet to a global audience, this year featuring the experienced Radio LeMans team as well. Three-hours of highlights are set to appear on SBS the following Sunday.

Wondering who Alex Roloff is? You know he's driving with Bernd Schneider and Thomas Jager in the Erebus Motorsport GT SLS AMG next week but don't know much else? This video is a pretty good introduction. It's from a VLN race at the 'ring last year and taken from on board factory Porsche ace Marc Lieb's Porsche. Roloff is in front - and that's all we're saying.



NOTE: If you don't have a huge amount of time, fast forward to about 7:40 into the video, where it gets particularly full on - but we think you should watch the whole thing because it's pretty epic!

Allez-y Peugeot!

Can't wait for this, $30 entry to watch a 12 hour race featuring world class drivers driving world class cars.

Not to mention the best commentator in the history of motorsport calling the race. Very Happy
