No. But good try.

A class winner from a Supercars run Bathurst 1000 is what I am looking for.

In that case the answer would be Rose/McCarthy in the '98 race I'm guessing (I had to look up who won it, but I remembered reading that there was a second class in that event running control tires).

It wouldn't be class racing, they'd all be in Supercar-spec equipment?

Kumho shod 10 years pre COTF old supercars are supercar spec. Im calling BS on that

Supercars has no interest in filling its grid with a bunch of slow under funded cars with driver of dubious ability

The 70s are over, they will leave that to the amatuer events that occur at easter and early feb

at any point, its irrelevant, Everyone was invited this year, no one came

There wouldn't be slow cars in the race as there would be a qualifying cut-off somewhere around 107%, and I've never suggested (nor has anyone else seriously) 10 year old Kuhmo cars starting the race.

Has a ten-year old car ever even contested a 1000km race at Bathurst??

sorry, you are right, apologies for the Kumho that was someone else in a different thread

But still there year there were spots for Wildcard and no one took them

supercars has determined the grid at 34 with a 107% cut-off (Same as sandown). The cut-off is up from 105% at sprint rounds

But still no development car took the spots (possibly because all the best Dunlop series drivers are co-drivers in the main race

But the field is closer together, and the officials are far hotter on the trigger than in the past, no doubt because of insurance concerns.

I'm wondering if the longest entered car in the 1000km race might be an under 2 litre Corolla, or perhaps the Lusty VL? I would have thought both would have clocked at least 5 of 6 years?

Bob Holden's Toyota Sprinter Qualified for 10 Bathurst 1000's 1984 to 1993. Starting in 9 of the races the only time the car did not start the race was when Mike Conway crashed on the warm up lap in 1991.

Yet Supercars didn't take the initiative to invite say GT3 cars to participate?
[That they would blitz the Supercars owing to their far superior downforce and wider tyres is besides the point. hehe]

On the other hand, they could have accomodated slower cars like say Marc Focuses or TCR spec machines (or even simply Kumho spec cars & NZ's V8 SuperTourers and V8 Touring Cars)...? Would have made a great spectacle to fill out the grid.
