Someone suggested elsewhere that manufacturers and fans mightn't be interested in this type of racing as they are the "wrong" type of production car?

Unfortunately the 'right' kind of production car is either out of build or about to be

In terms of the cars that raced in the 6hr (excluding the Invitational class), there isn't heaps you can change on them. There are a few freedoms but they are pretty stock, similiar to the Group E regulations.

So those last few laps were essentially a legit BMW vs a legit Ford Focus for real? Not the way we see Ford Falcons vs Nissan Altimas vs Holden Commodores?

as far as I could tell the 6 hour was any car up to 150k... I don't know if the safety gear was included in that or if that was just the max retail price for it...

they certainly all looked the part... not often you see a Camry scooting around Bathurst lol
