Motorsport on the Mountain

We’re off to Bathurst for a massive weekend of motorsport on the mountain; the Autohaus Hamilton team is in the thick of the action as usual, there to support Shane Smollen and Peter Boylan.

Shane Smollen is ready for more action on Mount Panorama, this time competing in the Carrera Cup series. Peter Boylan is campaigning to extend his lead in the Australian GT Challenge Class championship.

It’s looking to be a slightly soggy weekend but the boys are off to a good start with Smollen coming home third in class in practice one and Boylan crossing the line fifth in class in his first run and moving up a spot by the conclusion of practice two. The Australian GT and Carrera Cup cars will be out for qualifying early Friday evening once the V8 Supercars have had their turn.

Shane Smollen has plenty of experience of Bathurst in the wet, winning both races in the Australian GT Challenge Class last year. Check out this on-board of him showing no fear as he tackles the mountain in the wet for the 2010 Bathurst 12 hour, and have a great weekend of motorsport!
