    bathurst-12-hour-2015-(1).jpg The Liqui-Moly 12 Hours of Bathurst is just around the corner and this years race looks set to be the biggest and best edition yet. You can catch every minute of the enthralling action right here on the RaceDepartment Live Stream page as part of the B12H around Mount Panorama!

    It's that time of year again, when the motorsport season kicks off in earnest with two of the best races of the year within 7 days of each other. Last weekend we were treated to an absolutely thrilling 24 Hours of Daytona, and this coming weekend will see the GT action continue for 12 epic hours around the most infamous circuit in the Southern Hemisphere: Mount Panorama!

    Where and How to Watch
    Live streaming of the qualification sessions and race will be available on our live stream page and popular chatbox along the top of the website where you can watch and comment on the action as it unfolds before your eyes along with other like-minded individuals!

    If you're an Australian resident and would prefer to watch the race from the comfort of your couch, then Channels 70 and 73 will be broadcasting the entire race from start to finish. See here for viewing times.

    I expect the team of Chiyo, Rick Kelly, and our very own @Florian Strauß to win again. And win big. Everyone else is just racing for second place this weekend. B)

    What I'm told is that it's something to do with the rules requiring cars be a year old. Hence no 488s, no M6es, no AMG GT3s - the newest cars are the new R8 and 650S.

    Yeah it comes down to balance of performance, all the new cars aren't eligible as they don't undergo BOP testing until next month at Paul Ricard. Hopefully in future years they move BOP testing to January or something, would have loved the AMG GT3's to be here!

    Although the old SLS GT3 should have a good run in this race as a final swan song, the driver line up is crazy good!

    Sorry Andreas, I should have clarified in the OP, thanks @Shawn Jacobs :) I've amended the OP to make it a little clearer that the race is Saturday evening for GMT'ers

    The OP should be made clearer. But you're right, the only way round it can work. Edit: Godzilad.

    That's the spirit :)

    It really has become a highlight of my Motorsport calendar, and you can't not see see the start, something special about all those gt3s heading round the mountain for the first time in the darkness of the early hours of the morning

    McLaren 650S with van Gisbergen will be a highlight for me.he's always exciting to watch race. I still remember his bush tactics of cooling the tyres last year in the V8's:D.Just hopefully the 650s can keep up with the pace
