EOI: Bathurst 12hr Feb 24-26th 2012 MB display

Rumor has it that Mercedes-Benz/AMG is considering sending a factory team of AMG SLS to compete in the 2012 Bathurst 12hr.
Even if its not true, hopefully Peter Hacket will be competeing in his glorious SLS and taking it to the Audi R8 LMS that took 1st and 2nd in 2011.

If anyone is interested, I organised another club (Mazda MPS) to be a part of the club display they have in Harris Park (Tar area between the pit straight and the entry gates)
Was thinking, next year, to support the SLS's entry/entries, the various Australian Mercedes-Benz clubs could get together and put on a display.

Free entry for the 3 days is provided, reserved parking, and a parade lap.
10 cars is a minimum.

In 2011 we had Mazda Australia support, 20+ cars from ACT, NSW, Vic, and Qld. Audi provided some new R8's, RS5's, TTRS etc.
BMW club of Qld was there, and a few other clubs.

A great time was had, very relaxed dinners at night, good racing and a variety of cars.

If anyone thinks this would be a good idea, please express their intrest and i can get the ball rolling.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.
