Easter Bathurst 6 hour for Production cars.

We dont have a thread for it yet, so for everyone screaming to Bring Bathurst back to Production, we have the Easter Bathurst 6 hour for production cars. Will be shown live on foxtel and highlights on speed week. The supports look fantastic too.

So im expecting huge crowds flocking to Mt Panorama easter weekend.

http://www.bathurst6hour.com.au/

Im really looking forward to a fun weekend

The @Bathurst6Hour has confirmed a massive support race program to occur with more than 240 cars registered across the five categories making for what should be an exciting event for motor sport fans!

By huge crowds do you mean in comparison to the less than 400 paying spectators across 3 days that attended last year?
It is a pity there has been close to no new outright cars/teams come into the 6 Hour this year.
Intending to go up on the Sunday so hoping for dry weather.

Watched the highlights show from last years race and it struck me how much the event has declined since last year.The total entry is down by 25%,the outright class entry is down by 50% and even more worryingly the quality of the field has crashed.
Outside of Sherrin and Lynton none of the top 10 front runners from last year have entered and there are no new outright contending teams.
What has gone wrong?

The cost of production car racing has scared people off? The noise around the price of a couple of the cars that debuted last year were startling IMO. Isnt there also some kind of controversy around the official tyres in this years race?

Apparently all cars have to run the new Indian tyre and carry the signage while still paying full fare for the tyres (costing to the cent the same as the previous suppliers tyre).

I blame Supercars!

I don't think the economy is fantastic, and a lot of these races are rich boys toys.

The good news for those interested is a free International live feed.
From the 6hr website http://www.bathurst6hour.com.au
Quote:
LIVE STREAMING:

For our international viewers, the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour race will be streamed live and free via www.bathurst6hour.com.au/live from 7:50am AET (UTC+10), including support categories.

With coverage produced by noted motorsport production house AVE, the race will be broadcast live with coverage right the way around Mount Panorama.

Commentary for the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will again come from respected voice of endurance racing, John Hindhaugh and six-hour expert, Richard Craill.
Four of the first five positions on the grid filled by BMWs of varying models. The only non BMW in the first five is Jordan Cox. He qualified on the front row in an Evo.

You can buy a tried and tested race ready TCR car for similar money to an outright build, and probably run it on similar money.

Class A makes little sense now, when some of the cars eligible are not too far off being GT4 cars in both performance and price. They need to reign it in.

Sounds like nothing's changed.

Many incidents with them over the years, relating to fuel spills and fires.

Why do the commentators continue to insist the Leahey/Lynton Car has to make 5 pitstops?

Only the #1 car has to make 5 stops.
