Bathurst 12 Hour: R-Motorsport Aston Martins the first official entries for 2019 race

Published

on

THE first official entries are in for the 2019 Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour — and it means a sweet V12 symphony will ring out across the top of Mount Panorama next February.

A pair of Aston Martin Vantage GT3s will be run by Swiss squad R-Motorsport, who scored a win with the machine at the Silverstone round of this year’s Blancpain GT Endurance Series.

The plan is for one of the cars to fight for victory in the all-Pro driver outright class, with the other in either the Pro-Am or Am class.

“We are glad to be back at the Mountain,” Dr. Florian Kamelger, R-Motorsport team principal, said.

“We have entered two Aston Martin Vantage V12 GT3s which proved to be very competitive in the first three races of this year’s Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup winning the second round at Silverstone.

For a driver who has taken a record 118 race wins, one stands taller than most for Jamie Whincup – and it came at the site of this weekend’s Superloop Adelaide 500 on a milestone weekend for the seven-time champion.

Whincup is making his 230th overall event start this weekend, and notably, his 200th for Triple Eight Race Engineering. He becomes just the second driver – after co-driver Craig Lowndes – to record 200 event starts with one team.

The Holden ace made his debut for Triple Eight at this very venue in 2006, and he crowned his debut with the team the best way possible – with an overall Adelaide 500 win.

Published

For a driver who many believed would call it quits, Jamie Whincup crowned his new Red Bull Holden Racing Team contract extension the best way he knew – being the fastest.

Few could have predicted Whincup could rise from ninth in qualifying – and second man out in the Top 10 Shootout – to seal pole position.

However, this is a driver who had 83 poles to his name when he woke up on Saturday morning, renewed by his contract announcement.

Jamie Whincup has sealed the first pole position of the new season following a breathless qualifying-shootout double at the Superloop Adelaide 500.

Despite being ninth in two-part qualifying, and being the second man out in the Top 10 Shootout, Whincup proved his class and guile on a weekend he announced a contract extension with the Red Bull Holden Racing Team.

It marked Whincup’s eighth pole on the Adelaide streets – an event record – with David Reynolds second by a scant 0.0048s to set an all-Holden front row for the first race of the season.
