Belly13 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2011 Bathurst 12 Hour

It's shaping up as being a massive event. February 4-6 2011.
GT interest from at home and abroad, Production interest surprisingly up given the threatened boycott at this year's event.
Already Formula Vee and Improved Production are confirmed as support categories, with another 2/3 categories set to be announced in the coming months.

Interesting that Vees are back given their discontent after the last time....

I thought the baby class got canned from the 12 Hour?

Paul Nelson in the description, says that are selling so they can build another car, I wonder what it would be?

Anyone taking any guesses as to who will enter the race yet?

You have to ask Belly13 - he seems to know, or they are very good drugs he is on. Like alfacors' take on Vees, I thought the end of the world would arrive before Improved Production would go back after the last treatment by the organisers.

IP have been pushing to get back there, and I believe they have strong support from the IPRA competitors to do so (from what I've read on their forum anyway).

IP didn't have a problem with the organisers, it was more a problem with the weather. I think the DakDak boys got the least amount of laps in over the weekend due to the weather. There are some things you can't control.

Saloons got nailed with a wet R2 which got cancelled too. But the GT3 boys also had the 1st corner accident which caused the Safety Car to parade around for a bit too.

Vees got shafted in 2009 when the fire alarm went off and they had to can the race, and then it didn't get rescheduled.

From this weeks enews, Dave Taylor from NZ is going to enter two Porsche 996 GT3's and the BMW 130i from this years race into the B12 hour.

So what does everyone think about the proposal to run slick tyres on Production Cars in a bid to reduce the lap time difference between GT & Production?

Im sure they did the same thing in the 24hr. They may get better tyre economy from the slicks but Im sure someone else can answer that question.

I would be great to see the Rolex GT class compete at the event. There speed would be similar as well as tight racing.

Not sure if they'd fit into any class except an invitational of some kind.

Would be nice though, those Mazdas are porn for the ears! ( and Im not even a rotorhead)

How many seconds quicker would an average production car on slicks be around Bathurst?,

I would imagine that the use of slicks would increase the speed of the production cars quite markedly from Skyline to Forest Elbow, but would be less significant elsewhere.
That should mean that the speed differential is reduced at the place where it is most difficult to pass. The choke point now would seem to be the cutting.
Any opinions?
