Well, that was poo.

I got up at 5:30 to watch the first couple of hours of the Bathurst twelve hour then I saw bits of it between jobs around the house.
I sat down at 5 to watch the end and it looked like being a bit of a cliiffhanger.
With 20 minutes to go:
The lead car was an R8. The team thought it didn't have enough fuel to finish and they couldn't re-fuel without losing the lead, so they decided to go for it.
The second car was and AMG GT. It had maybe a cupful more fuel than the Audi.
The third and fourth cars were both Porsches and they had no fuel worries.
It looked like a close finish.
Then two non-frontrunning cars had a huge off at the top of the mountain and a third car hit one of the damaged cars.
The safety car came out and the whole field was stopped with their engines off in parc ferme on the starting line.
Then the race was was declared. Big disapointment, but it was all they could do in the circumstances.
On a brighter note, CAMS have signed a five year deal to bring international touring cars to Australia.
