I have been to the last 2 Bathurst 12 Hour races, it is a fantastic circuit and a fantastic event that is growing each year. I know everyone says it, but television simply does not do this track any justice. The rises and falls are mind boggling. There are so many blind corners that add to the drama.
The highlight was the start of the race, nothing like seeing 40+ cars racing at night and then dawn slowly breaks over the mountain. Stunning and well worth the effort to get there. If you are a true motorsports enthusiast and you are ever in the region do yourself a favour and go and drive on the track if there is nothing on, it is public road. You will they shake your head and come away with a lot more respect for the drivers.
Here is a picture that sums up the event:
