The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour has become a tradition for starting the Australian motorsport season here at InSyde Media. What a way to kick off the year!
Nothing quite brings you out of the off season quite like having to tackle the biggest, longest, yet most rewarding event on the Australian Motorsport Calendar straight up. The Bathurst 12 Hour certainly delivered on that front, particularly with the sunrise.
It’s been great to witness the growth of the Bathurst 12 Hour over the last few years. The race has quickly become one of the must attend events on the GT racing calendar globally, not just for drivers, but manufacturers as well. BMW and Porsche joined the field this year with factory backed teams for the first time. An impressive feat for a race that was solely for production cars just 7 years ago.
The weekend was a success for one of customers, Liam Talbot, who took out the win in the Am-Class also finishing the race fourth outright with his Walkinshaw GT3 teammates in the second factory Porsche GT3R entry. It was a privilege to witness and capture the weekend for Liam as well as our other customers across the event.
Here’s a sampling of Rhys Vandersyde’s photography work during the Bathurst 12 Hour for 2017. We’ve also shared a couple of our customers galleries on our facebook page as well.
