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.
