2019 BATHURST DATE CONFIRMED

THE Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will continue the Bathurst Easter tradition when it returns to Mount Panorama on 19 to 21 April, 2019.

It will mark the fourth running of the event that has now firmly entrenched itself as a staple of the local racing calendar, with big grids and sensational racing in the truest Bathurst tradition.

A2 WINNERS DELIGHT IN POWERFUL CLASS VICTORY

Boss Surveillance Mercedes C63 AMG drivers Karl Begg and Justin Anthony are ecstatic after winning Class A2 and finishing seventh outright in their Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour debut on Sunday.

Starting ninth on the grid, Begg took advantage of the C63’s straight-line performance to move inside the top five in the early laps, and running as high as second outright before a brief red-flag interruption.

SHERRIN BROTHERS WIN IN STUNNING SIX HOUR FINISH

QUEENSLAND brothers Grant and Iain Sherrin rebounded from a late race drive-through penalty to sensationally charge from fourth to first in the final ten minutes of a dramatic Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour.

Sent to pit lane to serve a penalty for a breech on a previous restart, the car resumed the race in fifth place with 30 minutes to go - though more than 40-seconds behind the leader.

BATHURST BITES FOR EARLY SIX-HOUR WITHDRAWALS

62 CARS may have commenced the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour weekend, however not all of them will actually start the race.

Usual pre-Bathurst endurance race drama has seen at least six cars withdrawn prior to today’s 11:30am start.

In what seems to be a cruel April fool’s joke, two, two car teams have seen both of their entries withdrawn overnight, while two other single car outfits have been pulled from the race due to engine dramas.
