    The Track


    [​IMG]

    Mount Panorama Circuit is a motor racing track located in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia. It is situated on a hill with the dual official names of Mount Panorama and Wahluu and is best known as the home of the Bathurst 1000 motor race held each October, and the Bathurst 12 Hour event held each February. The 6.213 km (4 mi) long track is technically a street circuit, and is a public road, with normal speed restrictions, when no racing events are being run, and there are many residences which can only be accessed from the circuit. The track is an unusual design by modern standards, with a 174-metre (571 ft) vertical difference between its highest and lowest points, and grades as steep as 1:6.13. From the start-finish line, the track can be viewed in three sections; the short pit straight and then a tight left turn into the long, steep Mountain straight; the tight, narrow section across the top of the mountain itself; and then the long, downhill section of Conrod Straight, with the very fast Chase and the turn back onto pit straight to complete the lap. Historically, the racetrack has been used for a wide variety of racing categories, including everything from open-wheel racers to motorcycles. However, the factors that make the track so unusual, and tighter modern safety standards, make it unlikely that major race meetings in these categories will be held there again, and as such it has become the near-exclusive province of closed-bodied cars. As a public road, on non-race days and when it is not closed off during the day as part of a racing event, Mount Panorama is open to the public. Cars can drive in both directions around the circuit for no charge. However, a strict speed limit of 60 km/h (37 mph) is enforced, and police regularly patrol the circuit. The current official lap record is held by Shane van Gisbergen, who set a time of 2:01.5670 during the 2016 Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour on 7 February 2016, driving a McLaren 650S GT3. It is the outright and GT3 record. A faster lap was recorded at Mount Panorama in March 2011 but as it was not achieved during a race it does not count as a record. As part of publicity for the 2011 Australian Grand Prix, McLaren provided a MP4-23 Formula One car for Jenson Button and Craig Lowndes. Button recorded a time of 1:48.88. Sixteen competitors have died during racing associated with Mount Panorama, including 1967 World Drivers' Champion Denny Hulme who died after suffering a fatal heart attack while at the wheel of his car. Two spectators were also killed in 1955 after being struck by a crashing car.


    Hotlap



    This week we have an offboard lap from @Ben McCluskey in his Mercedes SLS AMG


    Last Time Out


    Oschersleben returned to the calendar, last appearing in Season 1, where it provided a shock, seeing @Rob McEwan take pole in the feature race, to no ones belief. This race provided a far more expected grid. Oz took pole, from Diogo and then the 2 Spam Fritters Drivers. Lap 1 would basically be the last anyone saw of Oz, as he stormed off into a comfortable lead. Gaz had jumped Diogo for P2. Adam soon disconnected, and ben retired, to round off a bad day for Bangers & Smash GT. The pit stops came around, and it was as you were in the top 4. Diogo was really having a go at Gaz into T3, But it came to tears, as Diogo turned in, hitting Gaz's right rear, taking both off track, Diogo decided to keep the position, but it got worse for Gaz, as he then lost P3 to his teammate. Oz cruised home to an easy win, Diogo crossed in P2, Liam P3, Gaz P4 & Matt P5. Diogo was penalised post race for track limits, and subsequently dropped to P4. I dont really know what happened in the sprint, as i DSC'd and i've seen no footage, lets say Seeks won, Ben retired cause it got too late for him, and Bajny & Ramzi came back to take P2 & 3. :O_o:

    Not bad aye considering pretty much turned up with 9 laps before quali lol, last stint right at end was probs best as changed tyre pressures in pit stop which made car much more sticky to tarmac, Was going alright till I spun and went back wards into the wall lol pretty much ended any hopes right there for last 20 odd mins lol,

    But never mind been some good racing on the game over the 5 seasons apart from the time Andrew killed me at spa and oulton, but to come away with 3 championships is sweet as can one can want
