    A very special thank you to @Jamesl91 for creating the livery for this event! We are very thankful for your hard work :)

    RevolutionSimRacing [#114] - Porsche GT3: @Jamesl91, @steveg200 & @Stokemon
    RevolutionSimRacing [#115] - Porsche GT3: @t0daY & @Battenberg
    RevolutionSimRacing [#118] - Chevrolet Cruze: @Jonno, @Ranjanado & @1185323118
    Me Myself and I alone [#88] - BMW 125i: @Elodyr & @MelBonkers

    Jamesl91: "Anticipation is building with the start of the race just hours away, with hours of practice and preparation for the 12hrs of Bathurst the race is sure to be exciting and intense. We don’t have much of a strategy, other than making it to the finish with as little damage as possible but will take the race as it comes and see what happens.

    This is now my 3rd Endurance race in Rfactor2 and continuing with the Porsche 911 GT3, we have evolved the setup to suit both drivers and track. I am very much looking forward to this race and will be taking the 3rd stint as well as finishing the race in the early hours. The other members of the team are Steveg200 who had VR issues in the last round at Road America, Steve will be looking to get some hours under his belt and show the pace we all know he is capable of.

    Stokemon will be qualifying and starting the race for us, Stokemon is the most recent RSR member to pass the SRC Academy and will once again show the skills on track we know he has."
    t0daY: "After the rather short action at Road America I am super keen to take the mountain. I did, against my nature, a lot of practice this time. Doing two full stints without touching the walls is definitely a good start for an amazing race.

    With Battenberg on my side, I have a very experienced driver in rFactor 2. A very reliable driver and one of the friendliest drivers RSR has to offer. I am happy to be his partner for this ride, may the walls be with us, maximum attack!"
    Ranjanado: "Close to a year in Sim Racing and my first competitive Race in Rfactor 2. I am excited and really looking forward to taking to the mountain. Did a lot of practice and testing for a suitable comfortable car setup with Jonno and 118.

    I know it is going to be a real challenge but having Jonno and 118 as teammates surely is a bonus. Thanks to James and Darksi for showing us how to do the driver swaps.

    Let's do this!! Bathurst here we come!!"
    Elodyr: "Moving on with our Project "Me Myself and I alone" to the 12h of Bathurst we have huge expectations after our unfortunate DSQ last race. We know we have the pace for a race win, but it'll be about keeping the car out of the wall. I'm really nervous about the first lap and the first time the GT's are coming around, but other than that I'm really looking forward to a good experience :)"

    just...wow. So before my similar accident at watkins in season 4 I would have said it looked like you had a chance to avoid it. Now, having experienced it, I know your chances were next to nil in avoiding that. What a mess.

    Even if you could avoid him (and you need reflexes of a fly to do that), you would end up in the wall

    That was unavoidable, completely unavoidable and yes, the code 60 should have come out waaaay sooner as the cars were already getting back, sideways on track. Shame dudes, 2 RSR cars involved I assume?

    Yes Dutch, both GT3 cars caught up in that crash, both pitted under code 60 so didnt loose too much time.

    currently #114 in P10 and #115 in P8. #118 is in P32. Its tough up and down the hill with the touring cars being such roadblocks but quick judgement makes it easier to overtake them :)

    Though we finished last among all running cars, but we still finished inside top 10 in TRG class, and we definitely won on style points :D

    Great experience, nice team work, it was fun. Hope I still can participate the next one :D
