http://www.motoring.com.au/bathurst-street-car-lap-record-attack-105502/ Shane van Gisbergen holds the current lap record at the track set last year in a McLaren 650S GT3 at a spectacular 2:01.5670. AMG is already hoping to use the race meeting to showcase the 430kW GT R and Schneider, the 2013 race winner, is expected to be one of AMG’s star attendees at Mount Panorama. The former DTM champ and F1 driver showed off the capability of the road going GT S around Mount Panorama during the Aussie car’s launch last year. In that video he set a time of 2:24.03. With substantially more power, more grip from a wider rear track and active aerodynamics, the GT R should be quicker… “We are definitely taking part,” confirmed Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific product communications boss Jerry Stamoulis.
