Awesome race. Shame I missed the beginning but great to have the last 3 hours played on the big screen for such a close finish.

The V8's are cool and all but to watch a race at Bathurst this would be it. If all goes to plan there will be no streaming from the net or watching the last 3 hours on tv next year.

Bathurst in FM5... It is in!! Yeah the sun may be out and we have some tyre walls on the S's but FM5 has Bathurst!

Nice shot of the 458 SempeR. I will have both the 2013 Aus GT and 2014 B12hr versions of the Maranello MS 458 up in the next few days.

Mika Salo saying Bathurst is the best track in the world... That's pretty cool.

Yeah the sun angle is off but I love how close the laptimes are in game compared to real life.....

Real life lap record = 2:03.9xx.
Forza 5 limited testing on stock forza tunes = mid to low 2:04's for all the cars.

Can't ask for much closer than that!  Toast

I did some similar testing with the Maclaren GT3 car, need more practice, iRacing I'm getting 2.11, pCars 2:17 seems a little under powered, but iRacing seems the most accurate to me I expect to be 8 seconds slower... =)

It was a fantastic race this year too. Just brilliant.

I'm going to try my hardest to get to the event next year, a lot easier than the V8s as far as accommodation ect.

Been said many times before but a fantastic race, bring on Clipsal  WOOT

I would recommend going to this over the 1000km race in October. While the atmosphere in for the V8s is a bit better nothing beats seeing a big field of cars that vary in speed. Plus the 12hr is a lot more fan friendly and you don't have to put up with the bogans that are smashed before the weekend even starts.
Accommodation is certainly easier to get although you can camp in the middle of the track as well.

Next year can't come quick enough so that I can go again  Very Happy

I nearly bought tickets for this year, but I'll definitely be there next year! We should do an OZFM compound!
