Challenge Bathurst in on this weekend with the Supersprint finishing today.

The big news is that Christopher Mies, in a non-BOP R8 LMS, has put in a sub two-minute lap! He did a 1:59.2910 this afternoon. Tander, driving the same car, recorded a 2:00.3310 in another session.

It is possible that Tander was driving a GT3 spec car.

The new lao record was set with all GT3 restrictors removed and the car lightened.

There was still a little more in it too. Bauked at the final corner, missed a few apex' etc. That's being picky though.
He tweets a thanks to GT for sacrificing his earlier sessions? Meaning GT did all the GT3 prep? or did he set the car up for Mies to pile on a good time?

Some good cars there too. A VT HRT Supercar replica, roll-caged out Coupe-4. I'd be interested to see what times most pulled. I'll do some digging.
Looks like a good weekend and with the GT3 cars going, maybe something to go to in the future!

HRT replica had a best of 2:24, the Coupe-4 had a 2:34. My personal favourite car up there was an E30 M3 in full DTM look - it sounded absolutely mint!

I was up there Thursday and Friday, the only downside was that they had no spectator access up top! All the gates were locked. Even the accredited photographer had to go to get a key for the gates himself.

Ah bummer, the top is a must.
The HRT replica wasn't a Supercar though was it? I thought it would've had a little more in it than that. I assumed there was big bucks spent on the engine.

No, when did that happen? I left after the first set of sessions on Friday.

Was it the Kelso Electrical car?
