HUGE SUPPORT CATEGORY GRIDS SET FOR B6HR

241 ENTRIES across a diverse mix of five categories highlight the support race program for the 2019 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour this Easter.

Hyundai Excels, Production Sports Cars, Improved Production and the Porsche Club NSW Regularity have all attracted more than 50-car fields while Heritage Touring Cars will bring more than 25 classic Touring Cars back to Mount Panorama in a nod to the circuit’s remarkable racing history.

COMPETITIVE FIELD SET FOR 2019 B6HR

ANOTHER Bathurst thriller is on the cards when the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour commences at Mount Panorama this Easter.

A competitive grid split across seven class will again offer a broad mixture of cars and also see several new machines make their respective Bathurst debuts.

Bathurst 6 Hour champions Sherrin Racing have confirmed their intention to defend their 2018 victory on the Mountain, in a race that saw them only secure their place at the top of the leader board within the final half-hour of racing.

ADPV RACING LOCKS IN 6 HOUR PROGRAM

Following a successful 2018 campaign which yielded wins in the Australian Production Cars and the Qld Production Car Series, ADPV Racing have entered the ultra-competitive BMW M3 E36 for their debut in the iconic Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour event this Easter.

Competing in Class B2, the ‘little’ BMW will take on the might of the V8 Holdens in what is sure to be a titanic battle for class honours.

MADAZ MOTORSPORT TO DEFEND B6HR CROWN

FOR most drivers in production car racing, a win at Mt Panorama is usually as good as gets. The team at Madaz Motorsport, though, wants more.

Competing in Class E with a freshly built Mazda 3 SP25, the team of Andrew McMaster, David Worrell and David Noble clinched an incredible victory in the dying moments of last Easter’s classic.

McMaster then took the Madaz Mazda to several more wins during season 2018.

For 2019, McMaster, Worrell and Noble return to The Mountain with more experience, more support and a genuine shot at going back-to-back.

YOUNG-GUN COMBO SET FOR B6HR START

Two of the brightest young talents in Australian motorsport will aim to create history at this year’s Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour.

Lachlan Mineeff, 16 and Tom Sargent, 17, will endeavour to become the youngest driver combination to finish an endurance race at the Mount Panorama circuit, when they team up for the 6 Hour in a CHE Racing-prepared Toyota 86.
