Bathurst 12 Hour Endurance Race 2017

and the winner is


Ferrari wins bruising Bathurst battle


This was no motor race. This was a heavyweight title fight, slugged out between two prize fighters, each with a distinctive style of landing blows over a 12-hour match-up where only one would emerge victorious. Battle scarred, yes, but with the soothing tastes of the victory champagne to ease away the aches and pains of a 12-hour scrap.

Fifty-five cars started the Bathurst 12 Hour with the sun not yet risen and the air already stifling, the mercury reading 30 degrees at the 5:45am start time. What followed was an all out slugfest between millions of dollars of exotic cars from Mercedes-AMG, Ferrari, BMW, Lamborghini, McLaren, Bentley, Nissan, Porsche and Audi.

Whincup's overtake on Merc, a bit of contact and 2 wheels on grass full speed was epic
