FOX SPORTS TO BROADCAST B6HR

THE rapid growth of the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour Production Car endurance race will be reflected in a significantly enhanced broadcast package this Easter.

The race will be shown live on FOX Sports on Easter Sunday (April 1) with the live coverage commencing at 11:15am (local time) and continuing throughout the race until after its conclusion.

The addition of national TV coverage on FOX Sports is a major step forward for the Event despite only entering its third year in 2018.

INTERNATIONAL TEAM TARGETS SIX-HOUR SUCCESS

THE FIRST all-international team to enter the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will tackle the race this Easter.

RHC Lawrence-Strom, in partnership with MARC Cars Australia, will enter a BMW 1M in the race with drivers Darren Jorgensen, Brett Strom and Cameron Lawrence.

The trio made their Bathurst debut in February’s Bathurst 12 Hour, driving a BMW M4 GT4 to fourth in class – a car that Jorgensen and Lawrence will again drive in the pair of one-hour Production Sports Car support races that also feature on the B6HR program.

TWO CAR ATTACK FOR RACEAWAY TRACK TIME

Experienced race-car hire and motorsport services operation RaceAway Track Time has announced a double-pronged attack on this year’s Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour, running two Toyota 86s in Class D.

Last year, the Phil Alexander-owned operation campaigned a single entry for the father-and-son team of Graeme and Josh Heath; this year, they will also provide technical services for the Reynolds Auctions Toyota 86, to be driven by Gavan Reynolds, Chris Manning and Declan Fraser.

DRIVERS & TROPHY CONFIRMED FOR HISTORIC FORMULA FORD
