Bathurst 12 Hour: Ferrari too fast, gets penalized for it.
The Maranello Motorsport Ferrari 458 had its best time taken away and 50 kilos of ballast added after setting a time faster than minimum time benchmark while qualifying for the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour. Perhaps someone Australian can explain to us how that works and why a delta time system is used rather than straight fastest time.
In any case, Audi, Mercedes Porsche and Ferrari will be slugging it out, dodging slower cars on the very narrow Mount Panorama, a track that makes the Nürburgring look safe , starting Sunday morning.
V8 Supercar star Craig Lowndes takes us around the Mount Panorama track in his Audi R8.
If you are looking for a couple hours of racing action (and some classic car carnage), here's a look at some of the support races.
