    Anyone watching the Support categories? Bathurst website isn't streaming yet. 7mate doesn't show coverage until 4pm today and the race tomorrow at 5:30am.

    At least there is an R32 GT-R racing this weekend. Almost made a meal of it onto Skyline...

    It's currently a support race. I doubt a R32 will race in the actual 12 Hours.

    I know. It's just a GT-R is racing. :sly:

    Edit: Gotta admit, the BP M4 GT4 does look better on the big screen. All the cars look pretty damn good.

    All I get to see is the shootout and the race.

    I can’t believe channel 7 are still using the same on screen graphics since, like, 2007.

    The #100 Richards/Glock/Eng M6 has been excluded from qualifying, due to a techinal breech, according to the Bathurst 12hr Twitter. The #55 Waters/Williamson/Fumanelli, Strakka AMG has been elevated to the shootout in their place.

    At least it wasn't the #44. Here we go.

    Foxtel has spoiled me. I feel so dirty watching ads in a race telecast. :yuck:

    Ugh.

    I'm guessing the NISMO TV stream doesn't work for us Aussies now. Stuck with channel 7 and their constant ad breaks. :rolleyes:

    Not the lap you would expect from SVG.

    Yep. Geoblocked.
    The McLaren looked slow. Been slower all weekend. If Scott goes quicker, could be set up.

    Scott was indeed quicker. Too bad for that oversteer at the Chase.

    Figures.

    Quality lap from Luke Youlden in the old Gallardo. Second row start. :tup:

    Mega lap from Chaz for Schnitzer's first Bathurst Pole.

    Looking at the splits, a McLaren was never a shot even without mistakes :indiff:

    As a kiwi, I would have loved to see one of those McLarens on pole, but that was a great lap by Chaz.

    I laughed every time they added a manufacturer's name to one of the corners (Bentleys elbow :lol:).

    That Bentley is still a mighty fine looking machine.

    I hope Jaguar come through, next year.

    I wondered if the TAFE students were on call. They helped fix Holdsworth's R8. Shame the crashed M4 GT4 couldn't get patched up for today.

    I always find it weird that they start in the dark but let's go!

    Maybe just an hour later when the sun is just peaking over the horizon? You'll get the full night driving at the end of the race. This just looks weird, like you wake up at midnight to go to work.

    Chaz does the same thing in the Bathurst 6H production car race. Always exciting to see him pushing 100%.
