    Daytona sportscars 2018 Bathurst race report

    2018 Bathurst 12 hour full race report

    In mid 2017, It was decided that Daytona Sportscars would run both of its 12 hour cars in the 2018 Bathurst 12 hour. Both cars needed some preparation work before the event, but essentially, they were both capable of being competitive in the invitational class. To scale up from one car to two cars was going to take some organising. We needed additional crew, tools, spares and drivers.

    Read the rest of the race report in the attached PDF including some exiting news for next year!

    Tough luck. WTF is a Sin R1 GT?
    He jerked off with the determination of someone within sight of Everestís summit, having lost all his friends and Sherpas, having run out of supplemental oxygen, but preferring death to failure.

    Great article, thanks for posting. Sin R1 GT looks good too, hopefully you can get some long practice sessions in beforehand so that it too doesn't have similar failures in the main race as the Daytona did this year.

    Invitational would appear to be the case, which is a little brave, being more or less at the organiser's whim.

    Axle problems on the car remind me of another bloke with a high power circuit racer years back, got EN26 ones from Dave Mawer, broke them after a few races, "unbreakable" ones from Harrop - gone in one meeting, finally maraging steel ones lasted the ownership of the car and then further years with a less powerful Chev of Nascar extraction.

    The problem with some items are that you can test and test them, but until you do a sustained run on them at a high G loading track like Bathurst, you don't really find out if they are up they are up to the job or not.

    The daytona keeps being improved, but perhaps we have come to the end of chasing that.

    The Sin is a purpose built circuit racing car, designed to have an LS7 in it with an Albins transaxle. It has won many GT4 races overseas, and has had a long testing period with many cars and races.

    At least this time we wont be the pioneers in this car!
