OVER 50 CARS IN BUMPER BATHURST FIELD

FIFTY FOUR cars have entered the 2013 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, setting up a race that looks a thriller across every class.

20 cars will travel from overseas to compete against the best GT and Production cars Australia has to offer across the February 8-10 weekend next year. The entry list reflects the steady growth experienced by the Event in recent years and the faith shown by event partners in the move to a GT format in order to attract international entrants.

The three teams that filled the top three places in the 2012 race, Phoenix Racing, Erebus Racing and Clearwater Racing, have all confirmed their return for next year against a host of new and returning entrants.

“As it always does, the entry list will likely change in its makeup in coming weeks as teams finalise their plans, but to have a 50-plus car field locked in vindicates the change to a GT3 format alongside production cars,” Said Event Director, James O’Brien.

“We are particularly pleased at the level of international interest with 20 cars coming from overseas.

“The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour is fast becoming a ‘must win’ race on the international GT3 calendar and the 2013 edition should provide an entertaining spectacle and enhance the Event’s reputation further.”
