Yesterday's 12 hour was a classic 'race-right-down-to-the-line' deal, with Porsche finally adding the
Bathurst 12 hour title to its trophy chest, a finely calculated victory by the Bamber team.
Having so many marques all in contention for the win, & so much 'open' ( fewer 'safety car' restarts)
racing - was a real treat for motorsports fans, along with the many classes running on the 'natural' track.
"Well, we knocked the bastard off!"

(& 1st to do a surface traverse across Antarctica,
in good Kiwi style - riding a Massey Ferguson farm
tractor - with a few extemporised mod's to hack the task).
