Bathurst 6 Hour 2018 – A great event

For the whole 35 years of my life I’ve never been to a race event at the iconic Bathurst Mount Panorama circuit.  Watching the Bathurst 1000 on television has always been a tradition for me, with fond memories of the Group A period in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s through to V8 Supercars and the current generation of Supercars.  I remember watching Tony Longhurst throw the wonderful BMW M3 E30 around the mountain, Dick Johnson and John Bowe wrestling the Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth in the wet and Jim Richards/Mark Skaife winning a very controversial race back in 1992.  I also remember the late, great Peter Brock dominating The Great Race for so many years.  More recently, I recall Craig Lowndes winning in 2006 for his mate Brocky, who passed away about a month prior to the event.  There were also thrilling finishes in the 2013, 2014 and 2016 editions of the race.
