Who will win the bathurst 24 hour?

Sorry if this has already been asked but after reading the 24 hour site and herein all the talk about the munro's I was wondering who people here think will take the podium.

i think luxary sports cars like the:

BMW V8
TVR Tuscan R
Mantis

Will really give it to them this year but you can never rule out a porsche they are just so damn realiable.

Well looking forwards to your thoughts!

Re: Who will win the bathurst 24 hour?

I think Bowe in the BMW V8 has a good chance. These cars thrashed the Porsches in most of the races that they have raced in, but the main thing is that the "Monaro" doesnt win. It would have been good to see a new Ford GT on the track this year to beat them but will have to make do with a Porsche or BMW win i think.
Finally Good luck to Team GT with their BA GT hope you have at least as good a run as last year.

Re: Who will win the bathurst 24 hour?

that thing last year that came second,last year was all about making to the end for them and they didnt go as hard as they could of,they even said that,now they have the data have the car setup and the drivers know the track,im sure they might hand it to the holden..

if not TVR or the BMW will do the trick..lambo's would make a nice drive down the straight i'd think.
its on next week isnt it*(the race)..?

Well there are 2 GT's running, plus a 6Turbo in the same class as a VX SS which will be interesting to watch.

Can't wait to watch this, why, because I'll be there !

Re: Who will win the bathurst 24 hour?

It'd be nice to see some of the internationals mix it with the Monaros but I fear they might be up against it in terms of parity right from the start...
