    Hopefully this comes to fruition. Maybe throw Matt Campbell into that car as well.

    Matt Campbell and Mathieu Jaminet have been promoted to full fledged Porsche factory drivers.

    Yeah, that's great to hear. Hopefully she'll get a gig for the Bathurst 12hr as well.

    Eh, I'll take it over those stupid segments on channel 7 any day. :lol: At least you still get to see what's going on.

    Edit: Language warning for that pic. :):tup:

    Loving that Castrol livery. Suits the Aston perfectly, imo. Getting Scott Dixon down here for the event is a very pleasant surprise. Strong lineup.

    #911 has probably got to be one of early favorites. Campbell, Jaminet and Pilet is quite the lineup.

    We'll finally see an NSX compete at Bathurst. With Team JAS to field one entry in the pro category.



    Is it January yet? :drool:

    Bathurst 12 Hours just keeps growing and growing in prominence. Big time manufacturers and teams wanting to run there. I love it.

    I remember Erebus were looking at a possible NSX entry. Would be nice if they could make a deal.

    Man that Castrol Aston is a superb looking thing. Amusing that the drivers' heights are the perfect slope.

    Update on the status on the Bathurst 12hr given the current situation in New South Wales (and around Australia).



    Entry list will be released tomorrow morning.

    Even without knowing who all the drivers are. The lineup of cars in the Pro class is damn impressive. Only two GT4's is disappointing though.

    Paul Morris pretty much predicted it'd be a lone GT3 event. I wave the white flag and put my hand up for that. I want GT4 to grow in Australia. Best bet, is to run alone like at the new ARG/Shannon's events.

    Yeah, I think it would probably make for better racing anyway, if the entire grid was GT3 machines. Just disappointed that GT4 hasn't taken off down here. Started fairly promising but oh well. :indiff:
