BATHURST 12HR RACING – FEB 8TH 2015
With the world of motorsport watching on (Feb 7-8), Bathurst residents & spectators were woken to the sound of fifty elite race cars, lights ablaze as they took to the Mt Panorama circuit in complete darkness for the 2015 edition of the Liquid-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour race.
10 Bentley Auckland guests were present, joining others from Australian dealers to enjoy Bentley hospitality between the Lilianfels Resort & Spa & Bentley lounge trackside. Guests mingled across the weekend with dinner & spa treatments, met Bentley team drivers & got up close to the action. There were plenty of gripping moments & competition was rife. Witness the finishing order, with seven different makes of car in the top seven spots: Audi, Aston Martin, Bentley, Mercedes, Ferrari, Nissan and Lamborghini. That’s an incredible line-up of factory or near-factory teams, and to have such brands in the top 10 made for a spectacular 12hrs. One of our Bentley guests commented: “We were all pretty excited when it looked like there would be a Bentley on the Podium and only a little disappointed with 4th place.”
So despite the team's non-podium finish b y all accounts this was a hugely gripping & successful event, which Bentley will again cover in 2016. For your 2016 expression of interest don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
