BATHURST SHOOTOUT

Motor (Australia) - - THE VENT -

On­line you’ve writ­ten about the MercedesAMG GT R claim­ing to be the fastest pro­duc­tion car in the world around Mount Panorama with a 2:16.5. Well, fair enough, it is, but it was also the only car to even try.

Imag­ine if Bathurst be­came the South­ern Hemi­sphere’s Nur­bur­gring, and mar­ques started fly­ing cars to the track to use their fastest time as a mar­ket­ing tool? Looks like we’re head­ing that way.

Travis Gooding, via email We be­lieve a num­ber of man­u­fac­tur­ers in­tended to have a crack, Travis, though it’s pos­si­ble they thought bet­ter of it af­ter the AMG’s first ef­fort. Hope­fully the idea grows in fu­ture years.
