Only the #1 car has to make 5 stops.
There was apparently an overnight BoP adjustment to force the Lynton/Leahey BMW into an additional mandatory pit stop...

Impressive run by the #23 BMW.

The most dominant Bathurst performance since the Nissan’s in 1991?

A great days motor racing and only 3 full course cautions!

Boost pressure is restricted per engine type. Showed up for the lead Sherrin BMW being punted to the rear of grid for exceeding maximum boost of 1.45 bar in qualifying...

Unlimited boost would be awesome. For 3 laps.. KABOOM!!

I went for a look on Saturday. The GT1 race was good, the Porsche 962 running in the Porsche regularity was awesome. The Hyundai race was well supported but not exactly riveting. The Historic Touring car field seemed thin on Group A quality. The improved Production was pretty good. The Production car category was as bland as a dry weet-bix.

Could have stayed for today, but was happy to drive 3 hours to get home, 6 hours of that racing would have truly proved to be an enduro.

Im sure at the track it would have been amazing, but on TV didnt give it justice

Similar result to some of the old school Bathurst endurance races with the leader winning by 1.5 laps and the gap from 2nd to 3rd similar.

I went out to have a look on Sunday morning - each of the support races were non-events due to safety cars, particularly the production sports car race. Had to get back to Sydney on Sunday afternoon so didn't see anything of the 6 hour so can't comment on it.

Yeah Prod Sports race in particular was ridden with safety cars - the MARC upside down near pit entry after collecting the Lotus was one of the more stranger thing you will see.

Full replay of the 6 hours available through their website for those who were denied access to the event via the pay wall
