THE Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour enduro looks set to drive a resurgence in Australian Production Car Racing thanks to the massive field entered for the inaugural race, to be held this Easter.
53 fully paid-up entries (see following list) have been received to date, with more yet to finalise details prior to having their entry ‘officially’ confirmed and added to the list prior to the March 25-27 event.
Organisers now expect a field of at least 55 cars take to the track for first practice on Friday, 25 March.
A MERCEDES-BENZ will aim to shake up the Production Car establishment at this Easter’s Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour enduro – the marquee event within the 2016 Bathurst Motor Festival.
Long-time Bathurst racer Ron Searle and former V8 Supercar pilot Garth Walden will contest the race with a Mercedes-Benz AMG A45 – the first of its kind in Australia to take on the Mitsubishi, BMW and Subaru-dominated establishment at the pointy end of the Production Car pack.
