I'd imagine they did this so they are further away from the Dubai 24hrs.

Still to early for my liking - we need it later in order to get more dark running.

THE 2012 ARMOR ALL BATHURST 12 HOUR will receive an international boost following confirmation of a new partnership between Yeehah Events and Creventic, a Netherlands-based company that promotes the international 12 and 24 hour endurance series in Europe and the United Arab Emirates.


Creventic will actively co-promote the Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour internationally and are organising combined freight / entry packages from Europe, the UAE and other international markets in an effort to attract more international vehicles.


Creventic already promote the Dubai 24 Hour, Barcelona 24 Hour and Hungary 12 Hour. Whilst the Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour will not become part of the series itself, the marketing tie-up will ensure for added visibility of the race in Europe and the UAE.


Several changes to the Event structure have been included as a result of the new international partnership.


The date has been moved to later in February (24th-26th) to allow for vehicles to arrive in Australia via sea-freight after racing in the Dubai 24 Hour earlier in mid-January.


The class structure and eligibility list has also been modified to encompass a wider array of vehicles to reflect a large part of the field that competes in the Dubai 24 Hour and major races in Europe, such as the VLN series and Nurburgring 24 hour, whilst maintaining international GT3 and GT4 cars as the ‘outright’ classes.


The race will continue to cater for Production cars, with two classes again on the eligibility list – a full version of which is set to be announced within the month.


“This is another step forward in establishing the Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour as one of the premier international endurance races,” Event Director James O’Brien said.


“In our first year including GT vehicles in the eligibility structure, we attracted six international entrants including three from New Zealand, one from Ireland and the two-car Audi Race Experience team from Germany that would go on to finish 1-2 in the race.


“Our new partnership with Creventic allows us to broaden our horizons and reach a significant competitor base that already exists and regularly competes in this kind of race. We would hope that the result of this partnership is an increase of between 8-12 international entrants in the 2012 race to compliment a stronger domestic grid.”


Creventic spokesman Gerrie Williams said he was looking forward to working with the Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour organisers to further grow the international reputation of the Event.


“The Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour is one of the extreme challenges in racing, which should be on the record of each serious driver. We like adventures very much, and we consider the Bathurst 12 Hour as a challenging adventure – so this is an opportunity for both parties to work together to expand both the Bathurst 12 hour and the 12/24 Hour series.


“From our point of view, the Bathurst 12 Hour is on the other side of the world, so it’s already a challenge even before the start,” he added.


“But the incredible ‘roller-coaster’ kind of track, with its demanding up and down hill combinations, needs to be shown to the racing scene around the world. With our cooperation we expect to add more international teams, so within three to five years the Bathurst 12 Hour will be mentioned alongside the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, 12 Hours of Sebring and 24 Hours of Dubai.


“We hope this is the first step towards a long-term relationship, resulting in an even stronger and more international grid for the Bathurst 12 Hour, and more ‘Aussies’ at the start of the 24 Hours of Dubai.”

The 2012 Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour will be contested on February 24-26, 2012.

It seems, hopefully the race attracts some competitors from Dubai, the entrylist for this year's race had so much variety.

Alot of the time we as fans and competitors alike use forums to point out what is wrong with things (unfortunately with australian motorsport that often means alot) but this time i can genuinely say this is a great step.

I seriously hope that we dont hear of any more rubbish trying to paritise the fields to the unecessary rules of the AGT championship, but i cant help but half expect it with the previous track record of decisions.

But ignoring that for now this step is fantastic and will see the event become more well known and hopefully allow more competitors from around the world to take part.

He took several times part in the Nurburgring 24 hours so I am sure the answer is yes.

Yeah but the Nirgburgring 24hr is pretty unique in that there is nearly more classes than cars entered haha..

He did run it in Dubai at one stage but IIRC from one of Mals DVDs they imposed limits on the other cars (Ferraris) in the class to equalise the performance a bit but that was a few years ago now so no doubt classes are different..

According to this week's Auto Fiction McLaren are looking at sending CRS (their works team) to the mountain next year. Would be great if it were to happen, McLaren dont do things by halves, would really give Audi a run for their money.

Really? I hope to chat I had with the principal of 'the F1 at the Mount' the night before it ran had something to do with the decision!
He was unaware of the 12hr, the Audi works team or Lowndes competing in the event so I just opened his eyes. I also suggested that Jenson and Lewis should team up and have a drive in the 12hr before the F1 season.
Hope it all happens. May even get to see the F1 blast around again.

That would be quite an amazing achievement for the event if true and make for a great spectacle.

However with Auto Action becoming more & more of a 'tabloid' publication these days, (I can see James Phelps penning articles for the magazine any day now) I can see that could easily be smoke with no fire.

Fingers crossed though (along with a Merc presence).

At this stage has there been much interest shown by teams for next years 12 hour?

I read somewhere that Racer Industries are looking at entering a worked HSV Astra that they enter in the Dubai 24 hour in a invitational class for next year.

From what i have read & heard interest has been shown by

VIP Petfoods - Nissan GTR??
Audi - Audi R8
Audi - Audi R8
CRS - McLaren
Vodka 0 - Mercedes SLS (maybe)
Racer Industries - HSV VXR
Ric Shaw - Mazda RX8
GWS - BMW 130's, BMW 335i

Anyone else?
