That E63 safety car got a lot of track time. Mount Panorama seems unforgiving if you make a mistake

The crashes were wild! Especially near the end. Do not park in the middle of the track at the exit of a blind corner!! Yikes.

I've been watching some YouTube videos of the Aussie racing scene, and love the V8 Supercar Series. Balls to the wall flat out racing with no respite. I watched a bit of the 12 Hour race, and have decided to put Bathurst on my bucket list. It's amazing how involved Roger Penske is in the Aussie racing scene. I'd love to see him send over some of his Nascar Team drivers to participate in their V8 Supercar series.

Most of the year the track is a public road,which the local hwy patrol target very hard,the track has a number of rural small farms on the track.

A couple of times a year there are track days held available for the general public.

Yeah. I race some amateur events and there is no way I would go race Bathurst. To many bad corners where the barriers just kick you out onto the racing line.

Not for this cat.
