It is that time of the year! No better event kicks off the motorsport calendar than the legendary 12 hours of Bathurst. With interest from most of the major manufacturers and teams across the world, some would argue this is the highest caliber of racing to hit Australasia outside the world of F1.
This year we plan to expand on our successful Australasia GT3 series, and bring together the best drivers from the best communities across Australasia!
Mod: Apex GT3 - Camaro GT3 Will be excluded from this event due to parity/BOP issues.
Track: Bathurst 2016 V3

Seca has again kindly offered his server to be used for this event
Practise - Server will be open all days leading up to the event, and during the day leading up to both Qualifying and Race Day
Qualifying - Qualifying will take part as a 1 hour open session the week before the main race. There will be a max number of 32 drivers take part in the main race - if we have over 32 drivers entered, the top 26 drivers from Qualifying will take part in the race. The remaining drivers will then have a 10 Lap Qualifying Race after Qualifying, where the top 6 will take the remaining spots on the grid
Race - The race will be a time scaled 2 Hour enduro. Weather will be pre-set to replicate the same weather conditions that occurred during the real life race earlier in the day. There will be no compulsory stops, limit on tyres to change, etc - It is completely open - you do whatever you can to get to the finish line first!

Points system for this league will be quite simple. 1st Place will receive 100 points, and each position thereafter decreasing by 2 points. DNF will get last finishing position, minus 2 points. DNS and DQ will both receive 0 points.
As the Bathurst 12-Hour event is very much a team event, we will also have a team championship for this event. Teams are limited to a maximum of 3 drivers, and must be confirmed prior to the top 10 Shoot-out.

To go with the theme of a teams championship, we will also allow custom skins for this event. Be sure to include logos of your community/team you are representing!
