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.
A healthy field and a trophy commemorating the efforts of a long-time Formula Ford supporter have been finalised for the Factory Enterprises Historic Formula Ford races at the famous Mount Panorama circuit at the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour, 30 March-1 April.
The 32 participants in the weekend’s three races will compete for the inaugural Margaret Hardy Perpetual Trophy, created to celebrate the selfless dedication to Formula Ford from former national series category manager Margaret Hardy over many years.
TWO Supercars stars will get more Bathurst seat time when they return to contest the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour this Easter.
Former race winner Chaz Mostert and regular Tim Slade will return to the event, Mostert for his third attempt and Slade his second.
While Mostert will return to drive alongside good mate and fellow 2016 winner Nathan Morcom, Slade will re-unite with Dylan Thomas driving a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X RS.
Liam McAdam Motorsport today announced that Nic Carroll and Liam McAdam will join forces to take on the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour to be held on April 1st, 2018.
Both drivers are front running competitors in the Toyota 86 Racing Series and are looking forward to testing their skills and endurance in their first major long distance event.
The decision to enter the event “was driven by the desire to gain more valuable time at Bathurst in a Toyota 86 as we prepare to take on the 2018 National T86RS Championship” said McAdam.
