What an epic weekend!  Loved being in the Maranello Motorsport garage again this year.

Of course I didn't so much enjoy seeing JB and the 458 into the wall at the top of the mountain.  It's sickening at the best of times, let alone when it's a mate behind the wheel.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the photos:  http://www.flamestone.com/gallery/automotive/events-road-trips/liqui-moly-bathurst-12-hour

Great photos, well done.

That's an incredibly dumb colour scheme on the 458. I thought race cars were meant to stand out, not blend in  :doh:

Damage looks expensive, glad I'm not paying.

I'd say hugely expensive, my mail was gearbox

that would make both 458's with broken gearboxes

it's like Bathurst of old, back to when a street legal group E races against the big boys

and to think it didn't get any media, the potential is endless, someone's just gotta promote it

Thanks everyone.

And yes, feel inspired.  Get your butts up there next year.  It's hopefully building to something big.

I think the only thing it lacked was TV coverage.  Media coverage in every other sense was great.  With Liqui-Moly having naming rights (German brand), the focus was on promoting it in Europe, so hopefully the OS participation is even bigger next year, and maybe that will bring mainstream tv coverage.

As for the broad field, I think the issues were with the standard of driving, rather than the speed differential.  Yes the speed difference can be difficult, especially if trying to lay down the perfect lap.  But the thing that kept getting mentioned was the hugely inconsistent lines through corners, and drivers apparently not watching their mirrors.

And yes, very expensive 458 damage.  Not looking good for Adelaide in a few weeks.
