I’m sure a few of you watched it live, and what a race it was. Nail biting right down the final lap. A fitting 50th anniversary of the Holden and Ford battle around Mount Panorama. With over 207,000 spectators visiting the circuit over the last few days, this 6 hour endurance race was right down to the line with Holden in 1st and Ford in 2nd. I’m glad I watched the whole race. A real day in V8 supercars racing history.
Race 21 – Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000
Quote from V8 Supercars:
The epic closing stages of an fascinating race set a standard that future races will find hard to beat.
Reynolds and Dean Canto were gracious in defeat in the second closest racing finish in Bathurst history, behind only last year’s epic. It was both drivers’ first trip to the Bathurst podium.
Winner Whincup admitted there was little left in the tank – quite literally – when he crossed the line.
“There was half a coke-can left in it,” He grinned on the podium.
“PD (Paul Dumbrell) did an amazing job and he can be my team mate any day.”
