RELIABILITY KEY FOR AUSSIE MUSCLE CAR CONTENDERS

THEY may be the lone Aussie V8 amongst a host of turbocharged hot-hatches and international imports, but Ford Falcon GT-F drivers Jeremy Gray and George Miedecke say they are confident about their forthcoming Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour campaign.

Reliability rather than outright pace has been the target of the JMG Racing entry, the lone Aussie-built car contesting class A1 (Extreme Performance – Forced Induction).
