2018 Bathurst 12 Hour: Top Ten Shootout

The Schnitzer BMW of Chas Mostert and Augusto Farfus will start the 2018 Bathurst 12 Hour on pole after an amazing lap from Mostert. The young Australian nailed a huge lap of Mount Panorama at the wheel of an M6 GT3, with a sub 2:02 lap, the only car to go that quickly.

Audi’s challenger, Kelvin van der Linde, settled for a second, nearly a quarter of a second off Mostert’s pace, heading another R8, the 74, which was another quarter second back.

The 100 BMW of Richards, Eng and Glock was disqualified after qualifying for a boost irregularity, leaving Mostert to carry the BMW flag.

The car that inherited the tenth slot vacated by the DQ, the Strakka AMG GT3, came home sixth. Luke Youlden wrestled the ageing Lamborghini Gallardo to fourth, ahead of the McLaren of Scott McLaughlin.

The race starts at 5:30am local time on Sunday 4th March.
