    Take your favourite race or touring car (any class - but no Red Bull X20xx or FGTs please) to the infamous Mount Panorama Circuit and capture the intensity of battle. Multi car or single car shots - but if you take a multi car shot, please make sure the opposition are race or touring cars also. Night or day, dawn or dusk - the choice is yours.

    CARS: Any race or touring car (have look here for inspiration - could be a chance to get the SLS GT3 out!)
    LOCATIONS: Bathurst, Mount Panorama
    PHOTOTRAVEL: No
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: No X20xx, fan, non-fan or Junior, no FGTs. Multi car shots are good as long they only show race or touring cars.

    I haven't received the entries from Eric yet so there may still be a chance to get an entry in... possibly.
