peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Next-generation MARC Car to debut in B12 Hr

interesting that the new invitational minimum lap time has dropped to 2.06s

would think this could means they would be chasing top ten finishes with the right driver combo. Depending on Safety cars could also win it

Top ten certainly feasible but to win outright? I highly doubt that. Not a slight on the Marc guys as Im a fan of their work but no amount of safety cars is going to get them past all the Pro lineups destined to be in the race in February.

Bit of luck, staying out of trouble and good driving could see a car finish top ten but I think you're living in a bit of a fantasy world if you think they could win-even with the help of the safety car.

car that finished 4th this year had a best lap of 2.06.33. 1 lap down. so top ten is certainly on

From memory the previous version do less pit stops than GT3, although would expect these to have to do more

If you can stay on the lead lap with safety cars then you are every chance to win come the end, but yes would require luck and would need some decent drivers to keep circulating around 2.06

Last year the MARCs were around the Class B porsche speed, but these will be a fair bit faster . should lap the Gt4s multiple times

Multi STM team is promising. I wonder if HTP will return independently or as part of a STM approach.

What is the non-GT3/GT4 part of the entry list looking like?

Pretty quiet so far outside of the MARC announcement and the Jamie Augustine Viper and Corvette.

With the development of the event - one thing I do miss is the invitational manufacturer entrants like Peugeot in 2013 and FIAT in 2014. That was a great element of the race

but the advantage is now you get a 6 hour production race for them to attend and a much more significant Gt3 field to watch in the 12 hour

everyone wins

The Peugeot car would not be eligible for the Bathurst 6 Hours.

Agree though - the 6 Hour in addition to the 12 Hour has been great for Australian motorsport and fans

Are TCR a production vehicle? would be more than double the price of most of the cars competing!

and 5-10 seconds a lap quicker

Strakka Bathurst Lineup

Latest teaser from Strakka re- driver lineup: "Two of the three cars are already filled for both championships, we are planning a separate announcement about drivers before Christmas. We will have two Mercedes-AMG factory drivers competing in both the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup and the Intercontinental GT Challenge."

Anyone with better background knowledge than me have any idea who the drivers are likely to be for Bathurst?
