Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour – Erebus Win

The run to the chequered flag was nail biting with the weather bound to make an impact. A few hours before the finish the first downpour came which caused a few incidents around the circuit, bringing out the safety car. It cleared up shortly until more ominous clouds rolled over towards the mountain. With just a few laps remaining the rain started to fall again causing the teams to pit for wets. But eventually the #36 Erebus Motorsport Mercedes-Benz with all German driver line-up of Bernd Schneider, Thomas Jäger & Alexander Roloff taking spoils one lap ahead of the Clearwater Racing Ferrari of Mok Weng Sun, Craig Baird & Matt Griffin. Third went to the #5 VIP Petfoods Porsche of Klark Quinn, Matt Kingsley & Shane Van Gisbergen.

With the German drivers winning in Bathurst this will surely help to further  raise awareness and interest in motorsport mad Germany and hopefully bring more teams that currently compete in the VLN endurance series at the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife aswell as and all over the world.
